Communications in Germany

Currently, Germany occupies the third place worldwide in telecommunications, after USA and Japan.


Post offices in Germany offer a world-class service. Prices vary depending of the letter's size and weight, but usually sending a package from Germany to another country can be expensive. The main post office firm is the Deutsche Post. However, there are other businesses that deliver letters and packages.


The country dialling code is 49.


Mobile phones in Germany are affectionately called Handys. Mobile phone use is high, although not quite as in Finland or Italy.


Voice over Internet Protocol

VoIP is a new technology which allows users to verbally communicate through their computer. Essentially a telephone call made using the internet, VoIP is becoming increasingly more common in the business world due to its low costs, and easy set-up and maintenance.

Forget installation engineers and phone number changes, as long as you have a broadband connection, you can use VoIP any time, any where.

For businesses, this software is sure to eventually phase out the traditional phonecall. For as low as 4p for local and national calls, the economical potential is vast. With international calls often even less than that, VoIP is perfect if you are prone to long-distance telecommunication, or have offices, clients, partners, etc, overseas. What's more, calls made between VoIP users are typically free all you pay for is the standard internet service.



Internet is well used, and e-mail accounts have been increasing rapidly. There are many internet options, so try to look for the service that is compatible with your needs.
