I stay there for a few months at a time and use NOS mobile bband. Last time I was there I was buying unlimited sims that were €15 for 15 days and plugging them into a mifi for everyone to use it.
Worked fine

Thanks.. Its most likely a stupid question but whats a mifi? I'm staying in Montechoro there's a tv but no signal at all in the apartment.. The tv works with a dvd player.. Could I use kodi with the mobile broadband and is there a limit of how many hours you can watch.. Thanks..

I use mine with a fire stick, not brilliant but works for the most part.
A mifi is a device for sharing mobile bband, you plug your sim into it and it sends out a wifi signal which depending on your device will allow up to ten devices to attach including your firestick.
This is a 3G one but there are 4g ones around just have a search around most are unlockable by a code that is 99p on eBay ... argos.co.uk/pro…714

The tv thats there is an old model but ther is a scrt lead on it.. would it pick anything up? Thanks..

You will need an HDMI socket for your firestick so if it hasn't got one you are stuck!

I'm trying to remember if it had one.. I'm sure it as.. I used a cyclone box with a usb stick to watch some films on it..

I always take a portable USB hard drive now full of stuff to watch just in case!

I had five over there last time... So if I get the box from Argos and the code from ebay, do I buy the chip over here or in Alburfeira .. I'm not clued up on this type of thing... thanks..

Yeah get the sim from Worten which you will find in the modelo shopping in albufeira, if you stand in the car park looking at the shopping mall it is to the left on the ground floor.
I would check the connection with the firestick before you go.

Hope so.. we should be going back on the 5th but might go this sunday instead.. If we book one way we can use our feb tickets to come back with ...were booked on a flight in march as well but havent booked april or may yet.. didn't know how we would find it so we booked 3 weeks a month til march.. If I get things sorted before the week end It will only cost us 58 pound one way with Monarch and 30 euros from Faro..

We have friends out there now and they are still sitting on the balcony in sunshine so good luck!
