There are three main operators in Croatia: T-Hrvatski Telekom, Vip and Tele2. All operators go through a strict approval process before being allowed to operate in the country and each one competes with the others to offer the best deals. They have all been tried, tested and trusted by locals and international travelers and their deals are among the best in world. According to OpenSignal’s country report map, Croatia has an above-average network with amazing coverage around the Zagreb area. Signal gets weaker the further you head out, but there is still enough to be able to use your phone.
Croatian operators offer great coverage for a country that has a difficult terrain and many small islands, providing good 2G, 3G and 4G wireless services. All three operators sell prepaid credit, which allows users to take advantage of cheap offers and deals. The locals call their SIM Cards “Kartes” or “SIMs” and they can be purchased from official stores and approved resellers by showing your passport. Credit can be purchased from official stores, supermarkets and the airport. Top-ups can also be purchased online by using your credit card.
