    amazing really - we are just about to cancel our 3 wifi as just about the only place you can connect is when you are in a town. never connected once in France, urban or otherwise.

    What are you useing, that doesn't work, are all your settings right, because there are one or two things you can change if it's not working?

    In France for the last few days using " feel at home" the network automatically selected is Orange F and it seems to be OK, wouldn't want to stream on it but fine with the forum and emails.
    Cheers

    I have been using my 3 feel at home or whatever it is called in France with out problems at all. I bought 2 on eBay because I would use them up fast. I was wrong so one is in the Huawei thing and the other is in this IPad.

    I am naturally lucky and it may be that but no problems at all. When with Sarah & Dennis back in July at Frontignan Savès my Huawei out performed there "broadband"

    Sorry to learn you have not enjoyed the same level of success.

    I recently drove from Cadiz to Calais and back. I was able to stream Planet Rock from my Huaweii the whole trip :)

    We had the same issue as it automatically defaulted to their partner Free which had next to no signal where we were. Once we manually changed to Bouygues we were up and running. Huge sigh of relief from Mr Stroppy as he still has do a bit of work when we're away:rolleyes:
