Telecommunication

Until 1990, Albania was one of the world's most isolated and controlled countries, and installation and maintenance of a modern system of international and domestic telecommunications was precluded. Callers previously needed operator assistance even to make domestic long-distance calls.

Nowadays the reality has changed.  Albanians seem to be very talkative and addicted to mobile phones. In most of the cases mobile phones are the only way of communication, especially in rural areas.

There are four  operators: Vodafone, Telekom, Eagle and Plus Communication. Most of them are owned by international companies and only one is owned by Albanian  company.  Please check here a list of operators to see their policy and rates, so that you can make use of their services during your stay in Tirana
