    We decided to use our mifi with a Digi - mobile 20€ for 2 gb. You can also buy 3g for 20€ but you cannot use Skype with this - special offer at the moment. There is a really nice English guy in the indoor market called ' 'Andys' who will set you up if you have problems. He gets very busy. No problems so far. Very good wifi / mifi signal everywhere we have been.

    We have also so far collected around 6 local fee wiffies which we use when visiting.

    Others are using the sites two 'unlimited' internet who will be along soon...

    Hope this helps

    Hiya Steve, no straight 10€ for one gb including the sim. They retain 1€ to keep the account active for when you want to top-up. Good signal in Benidorm, not sure about rest of Spain yet.

    Re Internet on Villasol , Brian is using site Internet. I am using AhoraNet South and the server dropped out for 24hours, but it's been fine since. Brian says he might use AhoraNet when his site subs run out.

    Graham, our mi-fi dongle isn't an unlocked one. And we didn't bring it with us anyway!
