    On arrival in portugal, my Spanish dongle/internet SIM ceased to be of use to me as I was not prepared to pay the horrendous “roaming” charges applied by my Spanish service provider.
    Spoke to the nice man in Phone Shop in the Forum Mall in Faro and he set me up with an Internet SIM for €9.99 which included 5 hours of internet time. Recharge is done by internet or in store in units of €10 providing Portugal wide coverage, effectively, for €1 per hour..... suits my needs, service provider is TMN. You will of course need to have a SIM FREE DONGLE, but that is easily done.


    Regards, Bryan

    I have the same, €10 for 10 hours on vodaphone. Been looking since and it looks the cheapest non resident deal around. Great coverage all over the Algarve Just don't forget to log off:Smile:

    Up here in Central Portugal my people tell me that at the moment TMN have the best data deals, speeds and coverage at the moment... :thumb:

    ...of course I am with Vodafone... :Sad:

    €30 (ish) per month... unlimited use and fastest speed possible for the area... (bit doubtful about that last bit...)

    What should I do for the three days each side of Marjal when I will be in Spain with no connection? Does anyone have any medicine that will help with the withdrawal symptoms... shaking hands, sweating, panic attacks ect...?
