How to activate mobile and internet plans in Italy

Getting connected and being able to communicate is important when you move to any new country, and Italy is no different. Our guides explain how to set up the Internet and phone service when you move to Italy.

Telecommunications Providers in Italy

The four main providers active in the mobile phone and Internet markets in Italy are Fastweb (foreign IBANs accepted), Vodafone, Tim, and WindTre. Fastweb and WindTre offer both internet and mobile phone plans. All four providers have their phone and internet infrastructure, and coverage is fairly similar.

Phone guide

First of all, we recommend buying an Italian sim card for your smartphone. You can do it with our operators and then you will receive the sim card at your house a few days later.

This is very important because for many household contracts the providers request an Italian phone number.

Italian smartphones, like the rest of Europe, operate on the GSM cellular network. Whether you are just visiting Italy or settling in the country, unlocking your phone, and ensuring it's GSM compatible so that you can use it in Italy with an Italian SIM card is a handy and cost-efficient means of communication.
