The company will reinforce its LTE network at the event. Telefonica Deutschland said that will install 98 mobile sites at the next Oktoberfest in Munich which is opening this Saturday.
Unparalleled network capacity for two weeks
Internet Telefonica Deutschland Oktoberfest
In this day and age, most US cell phone networks have a customer-friendly internet option. However, we are also in a world where streaming is a large part of our daily phone use. Your hotel will have a complimentary Wi-Fi signal for you to use.
There should be an expectation set about cell phones at Oktoberfest, though. There are close to 200,000 people located in one small area simultaneously, so it’s not a given that text messages and phone calls go through while on the grounds.
Cell Phones Within Germany
Germany’s main cell phone provider is T-Mobile, and you can purchase phones that are with pre-paid minutes. The upside is that incoming calls are free (tell your friends and family to use an international calling card from home); the downside to this is that you must purchase the phone itself. Phone cards can be purchased at most stores, and both coin and card-operating telephone booths can be found along many main streets. Beware that rates of outgoing international calls might be high!
