Basics[]

Poland have 4 GSM-based network providers:

  • Play (by P4)
  • Orange (formerly IDEA)
  • Plus (by Polkomtel, merged with Aero2)
  • T-Mobile (formerly ERA)

More and more MVNOs and subsidiaries of the operators are arriving on the scene competing with four major operators and reselling their networks. The first 4 operators have pretty similar market shares around 25%. Their price battles have led to one of the lowest rates for data in the EU for the consumer, but to congestion and slow speeds at peak times too.

Primary bands for networks are bolded.

(*) - 2100 MHz on 3G is phasing out and operators moves available resources to 4G/5G networks.

Situation with 5G is very tricky - 5G works with Dynamic Spectrum Sharing (DSS) mainly on 2100 MHz, which offers maximal speed of 300 Mbps but usually is even slower than LTE-A. In contrast to others, Plus/Aero2 works on TDD 2600 MHz, which now offers the fastest speeds (up to 600 Mb/s). Resources from 3400 - 3800 MHz and 700 MHz are expected to be audictioned in summer 2021.

Now operators slowly opens 5G for prepaids (Plus opens 5G for prepaid line up to 31.07.2021, Orange, Play and T-Mobile requires special packages activated), but for not all subbrands and MVNOs.

What coverage is concerned T-Mobile and Orange are best sharing 12,000 transmitters in the country, followed by Play with 9,000 in 2021 and Plus on 4th position with only 8,500 antennas. Play also has roaming agreements with the other 2 providers, that are only available on some tariffs and coming to an end soon.

T-Mobile and Orange continues to show the best overall network quality in Poland, followed by Play, with Plus still trailing. 

Availability[]

SIM cards can be bought at many places: shops, kiosk, newsagents, petrol stations, tobacconists or the stores of the network operators.

Managing your account online may require some Polish language skills, as no English homepage is available. You can try Google Translate for navigating their websites. Nevertheless, the many options that you have on a Polish SIM can be quite confusing to foreigners.

SIM cards are sold in all sizes. Prepaid still has about 50% share of the total market in Poland and is called Na kartę. Tethering and VoIP are available without any additional cost on all operators.

Top-ups and validity[]

All Polish operators decline credit or debits cards from out of the country for top-ups on their website. In Poland you should go to shops and kiosks instead that sell recharges (called doładowanie) all over starting at 5 zł. This ban makes it hard to keep a SIM card alive from out of the country as most SIMs need to be topped up once a year not to be suspended. Credit validity varies between providers and often depends on the top-up amount.

Two local Polish top-up sites have proven to accept foreign credit cards without surcharges:

So there should be no need to go to 3rd party sites paying high premiums.

Mandatory SIM card registration []

Since July 2016 you are required to register your SIM card in order to use it. For registration you will need, an ID card (Polish, EU/EEA citizens only), passport or residence permit. In Poland they will rarely, but usually never accept a driving licence as proof of ID. The minimum age for registration is 13 years of age.

It's still possible to buy a prepaid starter set without showing your ID, however your SIM card won't be activated unless registered. Places where cards can be registered differ depending on the operator. Often some small kiosks sell SIM cards, but are unable to register them. That's why it's recommended to go directly to an operator's store instead, which are located in towns and shopping centers.

Furthermore, electronic markets, kiosks of the Ruch chain (locator) and many post offices sell and register SIM cards of all 4 providers and most MVNOs. For all operators maps of registration points are linked. More than 50 million prepaid SIMs in Poland have been registered in Poland in 2016/7 and all unregistered SIM cards have been shut off.

It is worth noting however, that it is possible and perfectly legal to use a SIM card registered to another person. The only law regulating prepaid SIM registration is Article 60b of The Telecommunication Act (Journal of Laws of 2004, No. 171, item 1800, as amended), which only enforces providers to collect personal information from entities who are a party to the Service Contract, that is who bought the prepaid SIM from the provider. Although such cards can be found online on polish marketplace sites like allegro, olx and lento, as reselling of those has not been prohibited, please be aware that the service could be suspended without any notice if the registree has too many active SIMs assigned to them. Moreover, you do not have any control over the balance withdrawals or any other aspect of the account, so do not use any 2FA on the given phone number. Using data only along with VoIP, topping up just the exact cost of the packet and blocking all inbound calls and text messages is advisable in this case.

2G and 3G shutdown[]

T-Mobile Poland announced that will shutdown their 3G network by the end 2023 and will begin in 2021 and refarm these spectrums for 4G/5G. Orange will shut down 3G by the end 2024. Play confirmed, that will shut off completely 2G and 3G for 7 years. Plus also will shut down their 3G network, but there is no information about time of disabling.

EU roaming []

EU flag.png
Poland is part of the EU, where from 2017 new international roaming rules have been enforced based on the 'roam like at home' principle. For specifics about the new regulation check European Union chapter and every provider below.

Most Polish operators now finally apply RLAH, up to the specified limit of data according to a strict Fair Use Policy (FUP). Some MVNOs (like a2mobile) have still opted out and surcharge all roaming data. Furthermore, the EU cap is small, because of very low domestic rates and free top-up bonuses which can't be used for roaming. For overuse, when breaking FUP rules or using an operator which doesn't offer RLAH, the regulated EU FUP surcharge is charged. 

Roaming in UK, due to Brexit, is comming to end. Play and T-Mobile now charges data in UK/Gibraltar at 29 zł/GB, Orange don't charge additionally up to 31.09.2021 and Plus also aplies RLAH rules but for indefinite period.

Data rollover[]

Due to fact, that most offers with data packages consists of two parts (bonus for top-up and data with no-limit package) it is possible to rollover your data. But take care that mostly only free bonus for top-up and some once-off packages (when you buy another before expiration of older) can rollover and free top-up bonus is used first.

Play[]

PLAY LOGO nowe.jpg

Play, owned by P4, used to be the smallest of the 4 network operators in Poland. But their aggressive marketing, Play finally moved to the 1st position in 2017/8 as far as number of subscribers is concerned.

By the half of 2020, it had covered 98.7% of the population with 3G/UMTS, which is called "4G". LTE, which is called "4G LTE" by Play, covers 99% of population. "4G LTE Ultra" is an area where LTE Advanced is available (maximal speed: 300 Mbit/s) covering 91%. Play has also started with "5G READY", which you can get over 600 Mbps on compatible devices, but coverage is limited - 48%. 5G is available on 2100 MHz (n1) frequency for prepaid plans, but you need a special package activated. 

Play has around 9000 of its own towers in the country, more than Plus. Play customers using most tariffs are allowed to roam for free on other Polish networks in places without Play's own coverage. Now, you can roam to 4G/LTE on Orange network and on 3G network of T-Mobile. Roaming speed stays always limited to 3 Mbit/s for download and 1 Mbit/s for upload. Be aware that the budget Internet na Kartę tariff is excluded from all domestic roaming and stays on Play's limited own network only. National data roaming is coming to end in 2021 upon the expiry of the agreements. At least that motivates Play to build way more own stations in last years.

Play has one of the most confusing SIM card portfolios in Europe. They have different tariff lines with default rates. Their website contains a description of prepaid plans as well as instructions for choosing a plan, but lacks some packages offer or how to terminate a package.

T-Mobile Polska[]

Telekom.png

T-Mobile in Poland has the best coverage in Poland on 2G, 3G and 4G/LTE. 4G/LTE is open for prepaid and covers 99.7% of population in 2017 already. On the majority of 4G base stations LTE Advanced is available to compatible devices at no extra cost. LTE-A in a T-Mobile can offer up to 700 Mbit/s of download speed. T-Mobile also offers 5G network on 2100 MHz (n1) frequency, but have to activate selected package.

Before 2011 it used to be a second operator in Poland, but after rebranding to "T-Mobile.pl" (from "Era") and during period with disappointing offers compared to other operators, it started losing customers. Currently it has least market share.

It has the biggest network and most extensive coverage in Poland. T-Mobile has a union with Orange Polska to improve infrastructure called NetWorks! - T-Mobile and Orange are building cellular network together, but don't share frequences. That subscribers can use both networks base stations (that is not equal to domestic roaming, but basically T-Mobile and Orange subscribers are using the same antennas).
