3 Best Prepaid SIM Cards in Norway: Buying Guide

Norway – part of Scandinavia, known for the Vikings, nature, and oil production.

It is also not a place for someone who loves hot weather – you will barely experience hot days in the country, especially up north.

Even then, it is a popular travel destination, especially for travelers from East Asia who are OBSESSED about Scandinavia.

But it certainly is not cheap. It is always one of the, if not the, most expensive countries to live in or travel to in Europe.

With majestic fjords, stunning nature & ski resorts, it is understandable why travelers are willing to pay top-dollar in Norway.

What can make your trip even more expensive is by roaming internationally. International roaming can be expensive.

That is why you should get a local SIM card to enjoy local rates, like a Norwegian one.

So, how expensive are Norwegian SIM cards?

You can get a Norwegian SIM card for between 29 NOK (3.30 USD) to 99 NOK (11.40 USD) in Telenor, Telia or Mycall stores. Many other retailers, like convenience stores, sell SIM cards of Telia, Lycamobile & Mycall. Airports like Oslo, Bergen & Stavanger sell SIM cards too.

So far, so good – the SIM cards do not seem to be too expensive. Just wait until you see the plans. It is still Norway, after all.

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

Buying a SIM Card in Norway Guide (logos of Telia, Lycamobile & Mycall)

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Norway?

Anyone living in or visiting Norway living in or visiting Norway can buy a Norwegian SIM card from the mobile network operators (Telenor and Telia) or the MVNOs (Lycamobile & Mycall) 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 Norway).

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

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Norway?

You can get a Norwegian SIM card in Telenor, Telia & Mycall stores or other retailers, including grocery stores, electronic stores & convenience stores (especially for Lycamobile). It is also possible to get SIM cards at various international airports, including Oslo (Gardermoen) Airport.

You can buy a SIM card in the following international airports:

  • Bergen – Bergen (Flesland) Airport
  • Oslo – Oslo (Gardermoen) Airport
  • Stavanger – Stavanger (Sola) Airport

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

  • Telenor Norway: 49 NOK
  • Telia Norway: 429 NOK or 99 NOK
  • Lycamobile Norway: free, but top-up or plan purchase required
  • Mycall: 49 NOK

Can You Use Your Phone in Norway?

Norway uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Norway. 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 Norway, 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.

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 Norway.

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 Norway 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 Norway (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Norway

Norway has one Main Operator and two Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) easily accessible to travelers offering prepaid services:

  • Telia Norway (Telia Norge)
  • Lycamobile Norway (Lycamobile Norge)
  • Mycall

The following frequencies are used in Norway:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: shut down in November 2021 for 5G NR refarming
  • 4G/LTE: 800 MHz (Band 20), 1800 MHz (Band 3), 2100 MHz (Band 1) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: 700 MHz (n28) & 2100 MHz (n1), 2600 MHz (n38) & 3500 MHz (n78) – not for prepaid nor for MVNOs (yet)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Norway, check out this page by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

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 Telenor Norway, ice & Chilimobil

In addition to Telia Norway, Norway is home to two other Main Operators: Telenor Norway and ice.

Telenor Logo

Telenor Norway is the largest and the best Main Operator in the country. Yet, I do not recommend going with it.

Why? Because its prepaid offering is basically a joke.

Not only does it offer no plans, meaning you have to deal with Pay As You Go (PAYG) data rates, but your speeds will significantly drop once you have reached 1 GB within a month (from max. 300 Mbps to 128 Kbps).

The only positive about this default rate is that you will be charged only 20 NOK per day, regardless of how much data you use on that day.

But remember, your speeds will be throttled for the remainder of the month.

ice Norway Logo

Let's talk about ice, the third Main Operator.

It has the worst network performance in all regards, but that does not mean I exclude them from my guides.

Often, the worst is the cheapest and still has reasonable service in urban areas, making them a budget option.

In the case of ice, however, it does not offer prepaid services. So, it is not an option at all.

Chilimobil Norway Logo

Lastly, we have Chilimobil – another Telia Norway MVNO.

While it offers reasonable plans for attractive prices (for Norwegian standards, that is), it stopped selling recharge cards in physical stores.

Normally, that is not an issue – just recharge online or on the app.

The issue with recharging online in the Nordics, including Norway, is that the mobile network operators only accept Nordic-issued debit- and credit cards.

Meaning only Danish, Finnish, Icelandic & Norwegian debit- and credit cards are accepted, not international ones.

This, unfortunately, applied to Chilimobile, meaning that it is not an easily accessible option for travelers and tourists.

Lycamobile Norway and Mycall luckily do accept international debit- and credit cards for online recharge, in addition to physical top-ups.

Telia Norway does not, but physical recharges are widely available.

As a result, only Telia Norway, Lycamobile Norway & Mycall will be covered in this guide.

5G NR in Norway

Commercial 5G NR has been available in Norway since March 2020. It is available on the Telenor and Telia networks. ice has not 5G NR yet, and the MVNOs do not have 5G NR access so far.

Best SIM Card in Norway

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Norway, I recommend going with Telia or Mycall. Telia has extensive coverage and fast speeds. Mycall uses the Telia network and offers attractive plans without speed restrictions (unlike Lycamobile).

While I know Telenor is actually the best mobile operator in Norway, you should not get its SIM card. Go back to the “Note about Telenor Norway” section.

SIM Card Registration in Norway

SIM card registration with your passport information is mandatory in Norway. It will be done at the point of sale.

While most stores selling Norwegian SIM cards can do SIM card registration on the spot, not all of them can or want to (especially 7-Elevens and independent convenience stores).

All the mobile operators allow you to register your SIM card online.

Unfortunately, you need a Folkeregister number to do so.

Only Norwegian citizens and residents get such a number.

As a result, it is recommended to get registration done on the spot where possible.

EU Roaming in Norway

European Union (EU) & European Economic Area (EEA)

Norway is part of the European Economic Area (EEA) but not part of the European Union (EU).

While the difference between the EU and EEA is not too relevant for this guide, you need to know is that since June 2017, those with EU/EEA SIM cards can roam for free in other EU/EEA nations, including Norway.

This means that, in the majority of cases, you do not need to purchase a Norwegian SIM card if you already have an EU/EEA SIM card because you can roam without additional costs.

However, conditions do apply. Mobile operators in some countries may impose a roaming Fair Use Policy (FUP).

In countries where local mobile data rates are extremely low (such as in the Baltics and Nordics), mobile operators may still charge you for roaming in the EU/EEA.

Be sure to head over to the international roaming page to learn whether your mobile operator offers free roaming while in Norway or if restrictions apply.

Roaming in the EU with Norwegian SIM Cards

EU Roaming Banner

Norway and the Norwegian mobile operators have largely adopted the roam like at home regulations principles early on. However, some plans have an EU/EEA roaming cap.

Moreover, the standard Fair Use Policy applies where you should not be roaming over 50% of the time over a four-month period.

If you do so, EU roaming rates will apply. You are then better off buying local prepaid SIM cards in other EU nations.

Norway Mobile Speeds, Mobile Internet Prices & Insights

Flag of Norway

The cost of mobile data has decreased significantly over the years worldwide.

Yet, the prices charged by some mobile operators are basically still highway robbery.

Does that apply to Norway?

To some extent, yes.

The average price for 1 GB of data in Norway is 5.81 USD, around the European average of 2.50 USD. The world average is 4.07 USD.

This makes Norway the 4th most expensive country in Europe for mobile data.

Just like in most countries, the cost to data ratio is higher with cheaper plans than more expensive plans – that is normal.

In Norway, however, this effect is even more substantial.

3 GB of data can cost you 249 NOK, basically 83 NOK per GB.

But you can get 30 GB for 529 NOK, which translates to around 18 NOK per GB.

So, this is something to be aware of.

Let's talk about something more interesting – speeds.

Is mobile data fast in Norway?

The fastest in Europe. Really.

Norway’s average mobile download speed is around 178 Mbps.

Currently, only the United Arab Emirates (238 Mbps) and South Korea (203 Mbps) have faster average mobile download speeds than Norway.

But Norway has been the number one a few times over the year, so perhaps it will retake its throne.

In Europe, Cyprus (145 Mbps), Bulgaria (142 Mbps) & Switzerland (136 Mbps) are in the top ten, so Norway still has a solid lead.

Looking at how Norway progressed over the year, its average mobile download speed has more than doubled.

This is incredible, especially when it already had a high average mobile download speed back in September 2020 (79 Mbps). Doubling that is not an easy feat!

What Norway, and especially Oslo (capital city), can boast about is that it has the fastest 5G NR download speed in any world capital of about 530 Mbps.

Besides Oslo, fast speeds can be found in other cities, like Bodo (92.96 Mbps), Kongsberg (176.41 Mbps) & Stavanger (121.60 Mbps).

You have probably also noticed that Telenor Norway is the fastest. Often double its competitors up to seven times faster.

Besides speeds, Telenor Norway is the best in all other aspects, ranging from coverage to network experience.

So while you will pay a Norwegian premium for everything in Norway, you will have access to superior mobile networks.

With reasonably priced SIM cards, extensive nationwide coverage (even in mountains or remote areas), velocious mobile download speeds, slightly higher than average mobile data rates, you should have a smooth network experience in Norway.

Currency in Norway

500 Norwegian Krone Bank Note
© Central Bank of Norway/Norges Bank

Norway uses the Norwegian Krone with the symbol NOK (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed as kr. For example, 25 NOK = 25 kr.

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

  • 1 NOK = 0.10 USD
  • 10 NOK = 1.15 USD
  • 100 NOK = 11.50 USD
  • 1000 NOK = 115.20 USD

For up-to-date NOK:USD exchange rates, search NOK to USD on Google, or replace USD with the currency you use.

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 Euros, my main currency, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards. Open a Wise account FREE!

The data, local call & local/international text allowances are the same, including the prices for each option.

However, unlike Mycall EU+, you cannot use your international call allowance to call 33 countries. Instead, you have to select a specific country.

You can select one of the following 31 countries:

Unfortunately, the call allowance differs per option and per country, making it a challenge to make a comprehensible overview for you.

Luckily, you can check it yourself here in English :)

Other Ways to Stay Connected When Traveling in Denmark

The cheapest way to get online in Denmark is to get a SIM card from one of the mobile operators unless you have a EU/EEA SIM card and can roam for free in Denmark.

However, local SIM cards are not your only method of staying online when abroad.

Below are some other options to consider.

International Roaming

Roaming is the most convenient way to stay connected. You do not have to buy a new SIM card, and people at home can easily reach you on your current phone number.

However, roaming has many downsides as well. It can be insanely expensive.

Learn more about roaming.

International/Travel SIM Cards

International SIM cards or travel SIM cards are SIM cards made for travelers.

The rates charged are often lower than international roaming, but they are almost always higher than what local operators will charge you.

Get to know more about international and travel SIM cards.

Mobile Hotspots (Pocket WIFI)

Mobile hotspots, or pocket WIFI, are small devices that connect to the local operators of the country you are visiting.

Mobile hotspots are ideal for families or those traveling in a large group, as they allow you to connect multiple devices to one hotspot without the need of each traveler having to buy a SIM card.

You can either buy a mobile hotspot or rent one.

Free WIFI Networks

Nothing beats free, right? Paying nothing to stay connected may be the best option.

Until you remember that free hotspots are not available everywhere (especially when on the move) and that free connections are often extremely slow.

Just make sure to protect your internet traffic with a VPN when connected to open WIFI connections. It is worth it.


The Preferred Way to Stay Connected When Traveling in Denmark

Getting a SIM card from either Telenor or Mycall would do you well when considering a Danish SIM card.
