Vivacom (Vivatel) Prepaid Plan, Internet Package, Offer & Roaming

Page Summary

Vivacom, also known as Vivatel or BTC/BTK, is the third largest provider in Bulgaria. However, the company boasts excellent 3G coverage throughout the country. In 2020, United Group acquired Vivacom.

The company launched its 4G/LTE service in 2016, operating on the 1800 MHz (B3) frequency in Sofia, Pernik, and Vratsa. Shortly after, the network expanded to include Varna, Burgas, Ruse, and Plovdiv. Vivacom’s LTE coverage extends to the largest towns in Bulgaria, and the operator added the 2100 MHz (B1) band to its network. As of 2022, Vivacom’s 4G/LTE network reaches 99% of the country’s population. While all allowances are valid for roaming, larger packages may be subject to a cap. Today in this article, I will list Vivacom Prepaid Plans and Internet Packages 2023 for Local users.

Vivacom (Vivatel) Prepaid Plan Internet Package Offer Roaming


In a store you can buy a starter pack in different plans, some of them are from the old series:

  • Opa: Plan with 5 лв airtime: 8 лв
  • Viva: Standard prepaid plan with 10 лв included: 12.99 лв.

Both have data at a high 1.80 лв and can’t be used in roaming. So better use their new series:

  • Free2Go: 10 лв with 3 лв balance, 800 domestic minutes, 12 GB data (EU roaming cap: 4.3 GB),

The SIM card expires 12 months after the last top-up of 4 лв or more (with incoming calls only during the 12th month). Top-ups of less than 4 лв do not extend the validity. More information about top-ups is available here (in Bulgarian).

Recharge vouchers are available for 10, 20, and 50 лв

Data feature packs

For the Free2Go SIM default data rate is 1.80 лв per MB outside of bundles and 0.30 лв / MB for overuse. The following combo packages are on offer to all plans above for 28 days:
