in Internet Related on May 18, 2024

There is a good variety of companies that provide Internet and TV services in Albania, catering to both personal and business needs. To help you navigate the options, I've compiled a list of the most popular Internet and TV providers in Albania. Most of these providers offer combined packages of Internet and TV, available via monthly payments, prepaid options, or other flexible plans.

The average internet speed in Albania is approximately 15.53 Mbps for downloads and 6.11 Mbps for uploads, with monthly package fees that can vary up to 2000 leke/month, though annual plans are cheaper but then you run the risk of getting locked into a plan that a few months later may not serve you the best!
