Prepaid Data SIM Card Wiki
Flag of France


Wallis and Futuna is a special collectivity of France located in the Southern Pacific. It's not considered part of the EU and hence EU roaming regulations don't apply and international providers charge high rates when roaming in Wallis and Futuna. This includes French providers from the mainland who will also consider Wallis and Futuna as an overseas destination like some other French overseas territories.

Wallis and Futuna was the last French overseas territory to start mobile services in 2015. One operator is catering for about 15,000 inhabitants on the two major islands. A 3G network on 900 MHz was built for voice and text and a 4G/LTE network for data on an undisclosed frequency. As French regulator Arcep oversees the deployment, it's most likely on European frequencies. Data is only through their 4G and not 3G network and some phones don't work for data.

Manuia (by SPT)[]


SPT for Service des Postes et des Télécommunications is the only provider on the islands. The brand for mobile network is called Manuia.
