Payphones are readily available throughout Estonia, but may not be well maintained due to the proliferation of mobile phones. Mobile coverage is extensive and EMT and Elisa offer prepaid services as well as international roaming arrangements for GSM 900/1800 or 3G phones.
Internet access is also widely available in most parts of the country and is often free in places like airports, cafes, libraries and in most hotel rooms. Estonia is the home of ‘Skype’ and has become one of the most technologically advanced and connected nations in Europe.
The postal service is reliable and post offices are easily found in major centres and towns. Mail will reach most European destinations within 3 days and other continents in a week.
