Im sorry if this has all been covered before but I need some expert advice to pass on to a friend. They fulltime 12 months of the year and come from Guernsey which has added to the complications re not having a UK address for billing. We can probably get over that one. Basically they full time probably 8 months of the year in the UK and 4 months in spain. They intend to buy their first laptop this week so that they have the ability to surf the web, Use Skype to call family while travelling and also be able to send and receive emails. I only use home Broadband and take advantage of wi fi signals when available whilst travelling so I dont have the first hand knowledge to pass onto them re what type of mobile broadband to buy. Im hoping that somebody who travels abroad a similar amount can pass on some info. ie, is there a mobile dongle that can be used here in the uk for general surfing, e,mails etc. plus low usage roaming that doesnt cost a bomb while in spain or france I doubt they will want to download music or films so it will probably be low usage all the time. Is it cheaper to buy a spanish dongle for while over there? Any help in the next few days would be appreciated as they are coming to stay for a few days this week and are hoping to get this sorted.
