    3G Internet Access Abroad

    Hey,

    I'm off to Spain! I have a 3 Mobile USB Modem, and my Nokia N95 on Orange.

    Is there any way I can get reasonably priced internet access whilst I'm abroad on 3 or Orange or somewhere else?

    Emasu is right I think.

    £9.99 for 24 hours (50mb) in selected countries, spain is a selected country (so he says)

    but other countries = £4.99/mb. Scandelous!

    Look on ebay, im sure i saw some spanish sims for sale.. just top them up when you get there and get local rates. Hope that helps

    Was going to ask this question actually. I'm going to France for a few weeks and internet for a couple of odd days would be great. Don't think we can get wifi where we're staying.

    So my best option is Vodafone £10 a day? So if I did 3 odd days it would be £30?

    Is this with a normal PAYG sim?

    Think it's the contracts only..

    But it's possible.

    Give them a ring maybe?

    Ah, not taking a contract just for that!!!

    Didn't really wanna pay that much...Play.com do the for £40....hmmm.....needs funds! lol

    lumoruk;2683121

    Internet café would be cheapest or should be wifi/internet at the hotel?



    Not staying in a hotel, got a villa but I doubt it's got internet. Will try to find somewhere local, Mcdonalds don't do free internet out there do they?

    They did have free wifi in the McDonalds in Nice. Not sure about Spain though.

    Thanks, I'm going to France if it makes any difference?

    I'm guessing it will have free wifi then... although it could depend on

    a) if it is in a busy resort/town
    b) if it is one of the refurbished green ones.

    mcdonalds.fr/gra…tml

    Look for Mcdonalds with an @ symbol that looks like an M.

    Looks like there's one close to me, hopfully can get the signal in the car as the battery won't last long.

    Go to a phone shop when you are out there and buy a YoIGo pay as you go sim card. You'll pay max about 1.3 euros per day for unlimited data. So it's about £1 a day. The sim costs may be 15 euros and has 10 euros credit I think.

    You may also want to check your 3g modem is unlocked.

    It's what I intend on using. Hope you have a good trip.

    P.S. You can get them on ebay too I think.
