Post Lycamobile Poland - 17-02-2012, 17:58

Surfing the Internet couple days ago I have found information the Dutch operator Lycamobile opened its branch in Poland in October, 2011. It works as MVNO on Plus' Infrastructure. As the information hasn't been delivered widely to public information, very little people know about the fact.

I decided to order a SIM card and test.

To order you have to visit operator's web site www.lycamobile.pl, then click "BEZPŁATNA KARTA SIM" link on the right, fill the form and wait. They need your name, address, alternative telephone number and email. I suppose they don't check if the name you put is real

After 2 days I received the card. There's 1 PLN to use.

According to the information on the website, prices are as follow:
  • Lyca to Lyca - the first 30 minutes free of charge, 0,29 PLN set up fee. Connections to Lyca Poland, Australia, Belgium, Danemark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK
  • Lyca to the Polish landlines - 0,19 PLN per minute
  • Lyca to the Polish mobiles - 0,29 PLN per minute
  • Lyca to Play - 0.39 PLN per minute
  • SMS to the inland - 0,09 PLN
  • international SMS - 0,29 PLN
  • international calls according the website - Taryfy ? Z Lycamobile mo?esz dzwoni? wsz?dzie taniej.
Morover, they offer 300 MB data transfer per month.

However, I haven't found out yet, how they bill (1/1? 60/60?) or what are data rates over those 300 MB. I'll try to get these information in their customer service.

The customer service is avalible 9:00 - 21:00, they say multilingual.

All these above clearly suggest Lycamobile is dedicated for those, whose families live abroad, and for immigrants living in Poland.

First impression: Needs about 5 minutes to activate. SMS access points need to by typed manually. Helpdesk automatic machine speaks English with hindi accent but service in Polish (you may change it) and proffesional.

Quality of voice is satisfying.

I've tested it with Nokia 6300.
