Mobile Phone Companies in Denmark – What are Your Options?

/*Comments Off on Mobile Phone Companies in Denmark – What are Your Options? */

mobile phone in DenmarkIf you are planning to move into Denmark, it’s a very good decision. Denmark is a lovely country to live in with very high standard of living, freedom of everything, excellent civic amenities and overall prosperity. Or you may consider having a long holiday in Denmark. But after reaching Denmark, you’ll need a cell phone to remain in contact with your loved ones and important contacts. So, how is the mobile phone system in Denmark? Let’s see.

You’ll get various mobilselskaber i Danmark (Danish words for mobile phone providers in Denmark) from which you can choose. To be precise, there is a fierce competition among them and so, you should better shop around so as to get the best deal.

Main Network Providers

Leading cell phone network providers in Denmark are Telia, Telenor, 3 (called Hutchison 3 or Hi3G) and TDC. There are some other providers too such as CBB Mobil Abonnement, but they use the same network of these main providers and sometimes even are owned by them. You’ll get a variety of packages from each of these companies so that you can choose the best one suited to your needs. Even you can get some tariffs that offer lucrative rates on global calls. It’s better to look around, visit shops of these companies, and talk to their salespersons who can advise you better.

Prepaid or Contract?

You’ll also have to decide whether you want a prepaid SIM or a contract while using a cell phone in Denmark.

Prepaid Cell Phones

Prepaid phones offer you great flexibility because you pay as you go and a Danish CPR-number won’t be necessary for you. You can easily buy top up cards for Danish pay-as-you-go SIM cards at any high street store, some supermarkets and most newsagents. Typically the data plans in prepaid options are not a good choice for expats because you are not able to use the SIM card once you are outside the country. However, for foreigners, Lebara is a good choice because it includes both data and minutes, along with chances for global calls to 42 different countries. It has only one downside that the prepaid cards cannot be used outside of Denmark.

To sign a contract is another option you can get. It not only offers the advantage of ability to delay payment until the end of the month, but also of lower calling rates (quite remarkably in some cases) and excellent deals on new phones. However, the activities work only in Denmark meaning that the services support calling and text messaging with only other Danish numbers. There will be extra charge for international calling. Make sure you read all the other terms and conditions including connection fees, monthly costs and your monthly allowance. Also typically most contracts have a fixed period of time; thus, this may not be the most perfect option if you plan to stay in Denmark for a couple of months. And keep in mind that a Danish address and a Danish CPR-number are required for obtaining a Danish subscription.

Can You Use a Foreign SIM Card in Denmark?

In case if you intend to carry on with your current mobile number and bring it to Denmark with you, first check with your operator if you can get coverage in Denmark. In bigger cities, this should not be an issue. Still, it’s better to confirm.

Also keep in mind that using a foreign SIM card in Denmark may lead to extremely high roaming charges unless you have a particular tariff in place. Here too, you should discuss with your home operator so as to avoid getting a staggering telephone bill.

Another alternative is to carry an unlocked cell phone to Denmark and buy a local SIM card. Still another option is to buy a disposable cell phone upon arrival. It will offer you a basic option, but at least you can communicate in a cost-effective way.

Consider these options of mobilselskaber i Danmark and choose the best one so that your living in Denmark will be pleasurable.
