Mobile phones & Internet Connection

MOBILE PHONES

  • Asiacell, Korek, the Kurdistan Region’s largest mobile phone service operators, have roaming agreements with several foreign operators, including European, US and UK companies. If you wish to use your mobile locally please check with your mobile phone service operator whether it has a roaming agreement with Asiacell or Korek.
  • Rather than using your home mobile SIM card, it may be cheaper to buy a local SIM card which can be purchased in some hotels and shops—especially in the bazaars. Top-up payment cards for local SIMs are widely available in hotels and shops.

 

INTERNET CONNECTIONS

Internet connections are available in many hotels and some private internet cafes, though not all connections are broadband speed.
