How much is a mobile phone rate in Germany?
The mobile phone market in Germany is competitive, which means it’s easy to get low rates if you shop around. Average mobile phone rates in Germany for 24 month contracts range from 15 € to 30 €. You can reduce this cost to around €10 to €15 if you have a phone already or buy a second hand one and sign up to a SIM-only contract.

What is the best mobile network in Germany?
Although there are many companies that you can sign up to or buy a SIM from, there are only a few that actually provide the network services. The smaller companies rent the airspace from one of the main network providers, either Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom or Telefonica O2.
The best for coverage and quality is considered to be Deutsche Telekom, especially for those moving to small towns or rural areas. However, the most competitively priced deals and fastest speeds are offered by Vodafone.
