Morocco: 3 Best Prepaid SIM Cards Buying Guide (2023)

Morocco – also known as Al Maghreb, is known for its culture, deserts & beaches.

The country is also home to ski resorts… which may not be the first thing you think of when you think about Morocco.

At least… I did not 😳.

Together with Algeria, whom Morocco has a colorful relationship with, Morocco has the largest Berber community.

But what can you do in Morocco? A lot.

You should undoubtedly visit the Jardin Majorelle-Yves Saint Laurent Mansion garden.

Do not forget about Bahia Palace.

And, of course, you can enjoy many of the Moroccan beaches, such as Plage d'Agadir.

You will certainly want to share your experiences online.

Before doing so, be aware that international roaming can be expensive.

You are better off using local SIM cards, like a Moroccan one, to enjoy local rates – almost always cheaper than international roaming.

But how much do SIM cards cost in Morocco?

You can get a Moroccan SIM card for 20 MAD (1.90 USD) or 50 MAD (4.75 USD) from Inwi or 30 MAD (2.85 USD) from Maroc Telecom and Orange in their stores. SIM cards are also sold at various airports, including Agadir – Al Massira Airport (AGA), Casablanca-Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) & Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK).

Those are some low prices!

If you have been to Northern Africa before, you know that mobile data is cheap. If you have not been to this region or did not know about this yet – now you know.

As always, there are quite some things to know before getting a Moroccan SIM card. So…

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Morocco. Let's go.

Anyone living or visiting Morocco can buy a Moroccan SIM card without restrictions.

You do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations.

Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Morocco).

Furthermore, you need to have a SIM-lock-free device.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Morocco?

You can get a Moroccan SIM card in Maroc Telecom, Orange & Inwi stores. Resellers, like tobacco stores, also sell SIM cards. They are also sold at Agadir – Al Massira Airport (AGA), Casablanca-Mohammed V International Airport (CMN) & Marrakesh Menara Airport (RAK).

You can expect to pay the the following for Moroccan SIM cards:

  • Maroc Telecom: 30 MAD
  • Orange Morocco: 30 MAD
  • Inwi: 20 MAD & 50 MAD

For up-to-date MAD:your currency (let's say EUR) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

Can You Use Your Phone in Morocco?

Morocco uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Morocco. If your phone has a SIM card slot, then it supports GSMA (99% of the phones do support GSM nowadays).

Traditional European frequencies are used in Morocco, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 and 3 (Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania).

The Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2) use American frequencies, which differ from the European ones.

ITU Regions Map

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU Regions 1 and 3), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Morocco.

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2) and have a low/medium-end device (without Tri-Band or Quad-Band) support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Morocco or can only use slower networks (3G or 2G).

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Morocco (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Morocco

Morocco has three mobile network operators offering prepaid services easily accessible to travelers:

  • Maroc Telecom
  • Orange Morocco
  • Inwi

The following frequencies are used in Morocco:

  • 2G: 900 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Morocco, check out this page by Kimovil or this one by Will My Phone Work (outdated, unfortunately, but extremely user-friendly – useful for phones launched in or before 2019. It does not check for 5G NR compatibility).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

A Note about Coverage in Western Sahara

Flag of Western Sahara

Morocco claims the territory of Western Sahara. However, it is regarded as a disputed territory by many.

Nevertheless, the Moroccan operators do provide coverage in Western Sahara.

However, as Western Sahara is sparsely populated, mobile coverage is sparse too.

The larger cities like Laayoune, Dakhla & Paayoune Plage have good coverage.

Some smaller cities, towns, and villages may have coverage, but it will be on 3G or 2G.

Speeds will be much slower in Western Sahara than in mainland Morocco.

So any SIM card mentioned in this guide can be used in Western Sahara as if you were in Morocco.

VoLTE & VoWiFi in Morocco

VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) is not available in Morocco – the same counts for VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi – also known as WiFi calling).

This means that your phone will downgrade to 2G or 3G when making a call in Morocco (unlike mobile operators that do support VoLTE – then you can still use 4G/LTE while calling).

VoWiFi is, as the name implies, calling on a WiFi connection as opposed to on a cellular network.

5G NR in Morocco

5G NR is not available in Morocco as of 2022, and the Moroccan government has not made any indications of when they will auction 5G NR licenses. However, both Maroc Telecom and Inwi held 5G NR trials in the past.

Best SIM Card in Morocco

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Morocco, I recommend going with Maroc Telecom or Inwi. Maroc Telecom has the best coverage and the fastest speeds. Inwi's network and speed performance are not bad either, and it is, on average, cheaper than Maroc Telecom.

Best eSIM in Morocco

Orange Morocco offers eSIMs to prepaid customers.

While Maroc Telecom also has eSIMs, they are (currently) not offered to prepaid customers (Jawal).

Note that the Moroccan mobile operators require your identification (passport) for eSIMs and physical SIM cards (will be discussed later).

Therefore, if you wish to get an eSIM for Morocco (without personal detail capturing), you can get the Morocco (Choukran) eSIM from Airalo with 1 GB of data for 7 days.

Morocco Choukran eSIM Airalo

Now, you may think this is a sad selection or that 1 GB of data is insufficient.

Both points are true… I agree – but you can make unlimited top-ups with the Choukran eSIM through the Airalo website or apps.

So if you need 5 GB of data, you can purchase the Choukran 1 GB eSIM and get four 1 GB top-ups.

Yes, it is a bit inconvenient for now; Airalo may offer 3 GB, 5 GB & 10 GB plans with a 30-day validity for Morocco soon, as it did for many other countries it supports.

The Airalo links will automatically get you the available Phone Travel Wiz exclusive offers – a code is unnecessary.

You can also get Moroco eSIMs from Holafly:

Morocco Mobile Speeds, Mobile Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Morocco

Morocco is one of the more affordable travel destinations in Africa.

And the same can be said for mobile data in the country.

The average price for 1 GB of data in Morocco is 7.07 MAD (0.69 USD), way below the African average of 4.10 USD. The world average is 3.12 USD.

In fact, Morocco is the country with the 5th lowest mobile data rates in Africa, behind Algeria, Libya, Ghana & Somalia – in that order (of the 56 countries).

The Moroccan mobile operators are not shy of offering 10 GB of data for just 9.50 USD (which may sound expensive, but that is quite cheap for African nations).

Morocco is one of the 14 countries where the average cost of 1 GB of data is below 1 USD.

So the cost of mobile data is low in Morocco – does that mean you have to deal with slow speeds?

Not really, to be honest.

Morocco's median mobile download speed is around 31 Mbps.

For reference, the global median download speed is around 31 Mbps at the moment.

Currently, only South Africa (33.08 Mbps) and Togo (33.34 Mbps) have faster median download speeds in all of Africa.

Morocco's African neighbors, Algeria (13.15 Mbps) and Mauritania (N/A), stand no change.

Surprisingly, even Spain (29.67 Mbps), north of Morocco, has a slower median download speed than Morocco.

But Portugal (55.10 Mbps) sweeps the floor with Morocco 🧹.

Even then, Morocco's mobile download speeds have increased by 16.5% year on year.

Okay, now it is time to know which mobile operator is the fastest in Morocco.

That would be Maroc Telecom, with a speed score of 67.26. Followed by Inwi (39.38) and Orange Morocco (30.11).

So what about coverage? Which mobile operator has the best coverage?

While all mobile operators have a general availability of more than 94% according to Opensignal (which includes 2G and 3G reception), Maroc Telecom has the best 4G/LTE coverage experience (70 on a 10-point scale), followed by Inwi (5.7) and Orange (4.9).

So what about overall network performance by the Moroccan mobile operators?

Maroc Telecom is the winner of the Morocco Mobile Experience Awards of September 2022.

Basically, you cannot go wrong with Maroc Telecom.

With low SIM card prices, extensive nationwide coverage (except for deserts), decent mobile download speeds, and incredibly low mobile data rates, you should have a good network experience in Morocco.

Currency in Morocco

200 Moroccan Dirham Bank Note
© Bank of Morocco/Bank Al-Maghrib

Morocco uses the Morrocan Dirham with the symbol MAD (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed as just Dh. For example, 25 MAD = 25 Dh.

For reference, below are some exchange rates between MAD and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1 MAD = 0.10 USD
  • 10 MAD = 0.95 USD
  • 100 MAD = 9.55 USD
  • 1000 MAD = 95.20 USD

For up-to-date MAD:your currency (let's say EUR – Euro) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card.

Their fees are MUCH lower than banks and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks).

I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Australian Dollars and Euros, my main currencies, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards.

Maroc Telecom (اتصالات المغرب), also known as Ittisalat Al Maghrib (IAM), is the largest mobile operator in Morocco.

It is the best Moroccan mobile operator in all aspects – at least ,that is according to Opensignal.

Maroc Telecom's prepaid brand is called Jawal, which is why you will see me refer to both brands as Maroc Telecom/Jawal.

Maroc Telecom is owned by the Morrocan government and Etisalat from the United Arab Emirates.

Moreover, Maroc Telecom, as a company, is active in various other French-speaking African nations as Moov.

Maroc Telecom uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 2100 MHz

Inwi, formerly Wana, is the smallest mobile operator in Morocco.

  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • VoLTE: No
  • VoWiFi: No

This is what you will learn about Inwi:
