Moldova Roaming

Moldova has recently signed a significant agreement with the European Union to reduce roaming prices. This new agreement aims to bring Moldova’s roaming charges closer to EU standards, thus making it more affordable for Moldovans to use their mobile phones while traveling within the EU. It is a step forward in enhancing digital connectivity between Moldova and the EU, fostering better communication and cooperation. As a result of this agreement, customers can expect a significant decrease in the cost of calls, SMS, and data usage when roaming in the EU. moldova telecoms


Moldova has several fixed-line telecom operators providing a range of services from telephone and broadband to cable TV. The primary fixed-line operators in Moldova include:

  1. Moldtelecom: This is the national telecommunications company of Moldova. It is the primary provider of fixed-line telephone services, and it also offers mobile, internet, and digital TV services.
  2. Arax Communications: An independent operator offering a wide range of services including fixed telephony, internet access, and digital TV.
  3. StarNet: Known for its high-speed broadband services, StarNet also provides fixed telephony and digital TV services.

These operators have played a significant role in improving the telecommunications infrastructure in Moldova, ensuring that both urban and rural areas have access to essential communication services.


As of the current date, Moldova does not have a significant presence of Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs). The mobile market in Moldova is primarily dominated by three major mobile network operators: Orange Moldova, Moldcell, and Moldtelecom’s Unite. These operators provide the majority of mobile services across the country.

However, the telecom market is continually evolving, and with regulatory changes and market demands, the introduction of MVNOs in the future is a possibility that could further enhance competition and consumer choice in Moldova’s mobile telecommunications sector.
