Frequently Asked Questions

How does the Ortel Germany SIM Card compare with our competitors?

More Americans visit Germany than any other country in Europe. Most Americans, despite the high costs, use their home based cell phone providers to stay in touch. The lucky ones know about Ortel, a Germany carrier using the EPlus network in Germany. Below, we have outlined the roaming rates with the larger US and Canadian carriers for voice and data use in Germany. Compare these rates with Ortel’s and you will see why travelers to Germany who know about us, use us.

Voice Roaming Rates in Germany

Sprint
Any call, within Germany, back to the USA, receiving or calling out is $1.99 per minute. If you sign up – and pay - for the Sprint Worldwide Voice Plan, the rates are $1.49 per minute. These rates exclude all taxes and fees.

AT&T
$1.50 per minute for all calls within Germany or back to the USA, whether received or dialed. AT&T also offers packages for minutes. As they often change, they are not listed here.

Verizon
Verizon’s roaming rates within Germany are $1.29 for the standard plan per minute for calls to/from Germany and back to the USA. If you opt for the value plan (for a monthly fee of $4.99), the rate drops to $0.99 per minute. Don’t forget to add the tax which is approximately 15-20 percent of the cost.

T-Mobile
$1.49 per minute plus local tolls and long distance charges.

Rogers
Rogers is a Canadian provider. As of 2013, they offer bundles of talk time that, while expensive, are a big savings compared to the $2 per minute they previously charged. Bundled rates drop the rates from $1.07 to $1.33 depending on the size of the bundle.

Data Roaming Rates in Germany

While “voice” roaming rates in Germany with US and Canadian carriers is expensive, mobile data varies from very expensive to absolutely astronomical. Our solution offers unlimited data (and calling) for $49 for 30 days.

Sprint
If you sign up for a data package for Germany, the rates are as follows. $40 for 40MB $80 for 85MB and $10 per megabyte for overage. Again, these rates exclude tax. Therefore, if a Sprint user were to use 1GB of data on their phone, they would pay about $9,000.

AT&T
AT&T offers data roaming in Germany for a significantly lower rate than Sprint. If you get a bundle, the rates are currently: $30 for 120MB $60 for 300MB $120 for 800MB before adding tax.

Verizon
Verizon’s mobile data rates for travelers to Germany are extremely high if you do not opt for a bundle and purely expensive if you do have Verizon add an international data bundle to your service $20. 1GB would cost in excess of $20,000 with Verizon. Bundles on the other hand are $25 for 100MB so if you get a bundle, you will pay about $2500 for 1GB of data service in Germany, plus tax. While certainly better than $20,000, still not even close to the $12 from Cellular Abroad for 1GB.

T-Mobile
T-Mobile charges a flat $15 per MB while in Germany or anywhere in the world excluding Canada where it’s “only” $10 per MB. In 2013, Cellular Abroad had a customer who incurred a $140,000 bill in one week for data usage in France (which we were able to have reduced to $0). 1GB of usage of data in Germany would be $15,000 plus tax. Again, our rate costs $12, including tax.

Rogers
Rogers offers “passes” for International travelers who need data. There are about 10 passes. Here are just a few: $25 for a day pass (up to 5MB) $100 for a month pass 25 MB $225 for a month pass 75MB

Roaming rates in the European Union

Incoming calls: 0.13/min

Outgoing calls: 0.41/min

Outgoing SMS: 0.13/min

Data: 0.49/MB
