Spain Telecoms

Spain is a Connected Player telecom market in Southern Europe with 4 main Spain Telecom Companies and 49.0 million mobile connections. spain telecoms

Regulatory Agency: Comision del Mercado de las Telecomunicaciones (CMT)

Spain has four big mobile internet providers  (all of them are selling prepaid sim cards for tourists too as well as for locals). Orange and Vodafone are the two well known European brands and then there is also Movistar and Yoigo.

Mobile penetration is on a par with the European average and there remains room for further growth, particularly in the mobile broadband segment which has been supported by continuing investment in infrastructure among operators, with a particular emphasis on 5G. There is effective competition from four MNOs and a growing number of resellers and MVNOs. spain telecoms

Which Spanish mobile operator you would recommend to others?

Spain, as a member of the EU, implements “roam like at home” rules which mean that when you use your mobile phone while travelling outside your home country in any EU country you don’t have to pay any additional roaming charges.

You benefit from these rules when calling (to mobile and fixed phones), sending text messages (SMS) and using data services while abroad. These rules also apply when receiving calls or texts while roaming even if the person you are calling is using a different service provider.

You pay exactly the same price for using these services when travelling in the EU as you would if you were at home.

Mobile users must be aware that outside EU countries, on ships, cruisers, planes etc. there are still roaming charges and they can be very high.

eSIM cards for Spain

We do recommend eSIM cards when 
traveling: no more swapping of 
physical sim cards, everything is
 automated on your phone through
easy to fill out codes. The 
downside of eSIM cards is that 
they are data-only sim cards and 
calls are not supported. Check 
out  Spain eSIM deals:

 1 GB With no expiration = €4.30

 3 GB With no expiration = €12.50

 5 GB With no expiration = €20.20

10 GB With no expiration = €38.70

Choose between daily, monthly or
 plans with no expiration here.


SIM cards for Spain

Prepaid Spain sim cards include 
free data roaming in the EU. 
Sometimes it is capped, so always 
ask when buying a sim card. Free 
EU roaming means the sim card 
you buy in Madrid or Barcelona 
can also be used in Paris, Prague 
or even Oslo. Free EU roaming on 
Spain SIM cards is great for 
those that arrive in Spain and 
travel to more countries in 
Europe on the same trip.

Or you can get a daily, monthly 
or even SIM card for Spain 
without expiration.
