Albania Telecoms

Local SIM Cards: Currently, in 2019, there are 3 main  mobile phone providers in Albania: ALBtelecom, Vodafone and Telekom Albania.

Albania’s telecom market is consistent with developments elsewhere in the region, with fixed-line telephony penetration declining as subscribers migrate to mobile solutions and with ongoing government efforts to improve broadband availability and access conditions. To this end the regulator recently imposed LLU and bitstream access conditions on the incumbent telco Albtelecom.

The country’s small economy is highly dependent on the key trading partners of Italy and Greece. In recent years both of these partners have struggled to develop growth in the face of austerity measures. Such economic considerations have had a marked impact on Albania’s telecom sector, with revenue growth having declined for a number of years before showing marginal recovery from 2014.
