Phone
The GSM network is very effective in Morocco.

Three phone operators (Inwi, Méditel and Maroc Télécom) share the Moroccan phone market and offer a broad coverage of the territory (except mountainous areas). Moroccan operators have agreements with the three French operators.
We recommend you to get information directly from your operator for phone call reception and international network fees charged.
