Default Poland Questions - 17-09-2014, 05:11

I've seen a couple threads on here about sims for Poland, most of the time Heyah is recommended it seems. My questions are more of a different angle.

1. I will have a phone which only has 2100 for 3(4)G more than likely, so are all 3 of the major carriers using 900 for rural with 2100 in the cities or is there a carrier which uses primarily 2100?

2. I am a little less concerned on price (seems service in general is cheap in Poland compared to the US) and since I plan on traveling by train or car to various points in Poland and not just staying in Warsaw for example I would be willing to pay a little more for better service out of major cities.

Can anyone give me some info based upon my criteria???

3G on 2100MHz is mostly used in cities and towns, also in areas popular among tourists. None of the operators provides nationwide coverage using this frequency and standard. When travelling on a train you will probably notice a patchy coverage - very good in urban areas and very poor or most likely none in rural areas. Normally 3G 900MHz is used in rural areas.
Perhaps a good idea could be to buy any cheap mobile phone supporting GSM 900MHz when you arrive in Poland. Brand new ones can be found for around 30$. Those are very basic ones, however will provide you full nationwide coverage. Please note that these cheap phones suport only GSM (2G), not UMTS (3G).

Regarding the offers - it always depends on what you really need (data, calls to PL, US, anywhere else), for how long, if you can spend some efforts to get some less popular sims or not.
