Data SIM Card on Thasos

Data SIM Card on Thasos

Hello,

I've been to Thassos for nearly twenty years now. It is a beautiful island. But how time changes, my own behaviour also changed. The internet passes I can book from my German provider are pretty expensive...

Is there a possibility to buy a sim only for data on Thassos? I think I saw a Vodafone store in Limenas. Are there other providers present on the island (Cosmote or Wind?)? And how much are the costs?

We are staying in the south of Thassos, near Astris. How is the network coverage? Does someone have experience with the providers?

Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

Philipp

    Hi Philipp,

    There is a Cosmote shop and a Vodafone shop in Limenas.

    What you could do is go to Cosmote in Limenas and get a pay-as-you-go SIM. The "WhatsUp" package is good for what you want to do. For 5 euros you can get 500 Mb of data. If you want to add minutes (for phone calls) you'll have the option too, but if you want to use the SIM only for 3G, you can do that.

    Initial cost for the SIM card, well... I can't remember. No more than 10 Euros, I'd day!

    The network coverage on the island is pretty good. I have Cosmote and am happy with the 3G service I get, but I'm usually in the northern part of the island.

    Here's a map with its exact location:

    https://www.google.gr/maps/place/40°46'46.6"N+24°42'38.9"E/@40.779623,24.7102668,177m/data=!3m2!1e3!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d40.779623!4d24.710814

    The shop sign reads "ΓΕΡΜΑΝΟΣ" (GERMANOS). It's just 10 metres from the Vodafone Shop.
