New in Denmark? Then you would probably like to get a Danish cell phone subscription as fast as possible. In this article we will show you how to get started.
An important step of the process of settling in Denmark is getting a cell phone subscription. This makes it easier for study or work colleagues, friends and family abroad as well as official entities to get hold of you. Sticking with your own subscription from home could leave you with a huge bill, so the faster you decide on a Danish subscription, the better. This article will guide you all the way.
Danish cell phone subscriptions are roughly divided into three types:
• Regular subscriptions with monthly payment (expensive, but companies have high street stores)
• Online subscriptions with pay-as-you-go or monthly payment (Recommended, cheap, online)
• Prepaid cards (Expensive but no subscription needed)
This article focuses on the online subscriptions as this in our opinion by far is the best option.
You don’t need to be a computer expert to set it up as the companies guide you through the registration process. The companies give you the opportunity to handle all your subscription details online as well as let you add on any extras you require such as foreign calls or extra data.
The recommended companies and subscriptions are:
Link to the different subscriptions mentioned above:
6 hours talk + 1 GB data (Telmore) (scroll down to “6 timer + 1 GB”)
10 hours talk + 5 GB data (Telmore) (scroll down to “10 timer + 5 GB”)
As you will notice, CallMe’s prices are very competitive. This is why we have chosen to present a more thorough guide to their online registration in particular.
