Orange used to be the market leader, but now Vodafone has taken its place (the number of connections is more than 38.5 million). The first three operators have approximately the same GSM coverage, for WE it is slightly worse.

In these stores they sell the SIM-cards already used by someone or new ones registered in somebody's name.
