From tomorrow it’s good news for French mobile customers in Monaco

From tomorrow it’s good news for French mobile customers in Monaco - From tomorrow Tuesday 5th March 2024, all French mobile customers will be able to use the Monegasque network throughout the Principality. The roll-out is being driven by the Monegasque Government, in collaboration with French mobile network operators and the national operator Monaco Telecom, to harmonise the quality of the mobile network across the country. As a result, customers will switch networks via data roaming when they arrive in Monaco. 'Monaco Telecom' will be displayed at the top of the phone screen in place of the French operator's name. Similar to when travelling to other European countries, customers will be able to use the local operator's mobile phone network to make and receive calls or connect to the internet.

To use the Monaco Telecom network, French mobile customers will need to check that the following settings have been configured when they arrive in the country: - Mobile data and data roaming; 'data abroad'. Mobile internet services such as MMS, WhatsApp and other apps require mobile data to be activated. - All calls to France require the code +33. The number may need to be saved to contacts in the same format.
- Set to 'automatic network selection' or, if no network is displayed, manually select 'Monaco Telecom'. There is an FAQ section providing information for French network customers on the Mon Service Public website https://monservicepublic.gouv.mc/
