EE coverage in Italian Dolomites

Hi all,

My husband and I are traveling in Italy next week and are counting on phone coverage for Google maps. Has anyone travelled in this area and know what kind of coverage I can expect?

If it's not good I better download some stuff for my GPS instead. 


Many thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello there @swartzky


Thanks for posting on the community.


If you text ROAMING to 150 before you go to make sure you're set up for using your phone abroad.


You can search for different networks within the phone settings if you need to.


Below is how to do this depending on your phone.


  • iPhone – Settings > Carrier > Toggle Automatic OFF


  • Android – Settings > More Networks > Mobile Networks > Network Operators > Tap OK


  • Windows – Settings > Mobile Network > Network Selection > Tap on start manual search


Hope you have an amazing trip 🙂

Hi Leanne,

Thanks for the information but I think you misunderstood my question.

I travel quite a lot so I know roaming works.

My question was about how the network coverage is in that area of Italy (because it is in the mountains it could potentially be bad). I'm asking if anyone has personal experience or knows who EE's partner in the area is. I understand you as a represetnative of EE can't answer that because I already asked customer service so that's why I'm asking the community.
