Sim only without connection costs? Every month, the providers have different promotions for new customers. Don’t want to pay a connection fee with your new sim only subscription? Then read on to see which providers do not charge a connection fee this month.
What are the connection costs?
These are administrative costs that a provider charges when you take out a new sim only subscription. This is a one-time fee that will be charged on your first invoice or that has to be paid immediately when you buy a new sim only subscription. One provider calls it connection costs, the other one-time administrative costs or activation costs.
Why do I pay a connection fee for a sim only?
If you take out a new subscription, the provider will have to perform various administrative tasks before you can use it to make calls and use mobile internet. If you want to keep your existing mobile number, you will also need to do some administrative work. In order to pay part of these costs, a provider will charge you a fee.
Which providers charge a connection fee?
Each provider charges a standard connection fee. The average amount charged by a provider is around €20. This means that some providers charge a little more, while others charge less. Below is an overview of all the connection costs that (sim only) providers charge once.
