Three (3) mobile on Feel at Home service starts today in Spain. Who's going to report on its coverage first? Not me I have Spanish contract mobile internet, but we like to know how things are moving forward.

I'll tell be able to tell you in 3 weeks. :)
My main worry is we will be near the Portuguese border for a while and I need to be sure it won't log onto a Portuguese provider as that would be very expensive.

I'm at Ribemar ACSI site near Alcossebre. I'm on PAYG, have turned on roaming and converted to a £15 package just a while ago. I'm on Movistar network, no message from '3' to tell me I'm on Feel at Home or anything, will leave it on today and see what my balance is tomorrow.

The connection etc is pretty good, far better than the site WIFI. Fingers crossed, it's OK and not costing an arm and a leg! Dave

Davidandginnys post refers to Movistar, there are other providers in Spain, Orange and Vodafone to name just two, I await confirmation who has partnered with 3 in Spain. The first Funsters to confirm gets a free welcome drink when turning up at camperstopsierraespuna. Please bring proof to obtain this one off offer.

We plan to stop at Sierra Espuna but it probably won't be until May or early June. I suspect your prize will have been claimed by then!

Have just spoken to my mechanic in the UK on my 3 phone via Yoigo, and I can confirm that it works free of any roaming charges to the UK.

I am on three and got Movistar 95% of the time in Spain between January and March. Service was good, though I hardly used it because feel at home hadn't started.

Erm, I think I will pass on your kind offer for a couple of reasons. The first being I have no idea where camperstop is and the second, no one has ever bought me a drink in my life. Am not about to change that now.

We are at La Linea and have mobile internet with 3 in the UK. Just tried to log on in the van via Yoigo and zilch, so currently in the local football club bar using their free wifi. Will try again later.

This has been discussed before I think but can it be topped up when you are outside UK? There is a problem with cards I believe being authenticated. Secondedly, how long do top ups last? Is it just a month? I've looked on the Three website but couldn't find anything definite.
I am going away for two months so working out how to use it for that period is important.

That makes sense. If you have a card registered with them any authentication should happen within the UK. I just need to register a card - tried today and it refuses to take my post code. Apparently I live near St Austell according to Three. Wrong County, but close!

I've got the 3GB starter pack, "valid for three months" except top ups are only valid one month it seems. I have also read on the Three website itself that topping up when outside the UK is problematic. Probably deliberate as they don't want it used by ex-pats!
But good to hear from d and g that they have topped up from places where the sun shines, so to speak.

I am led to believe that overseas usage is restricted to 3 months in any on year, we currently have two SIMs and use them alternately when we are out of Spain. (Home)

All the above is gobbledegook to me. I have my 3 mobile on contract. I use my phone to speak to people. It does what I want it to do. It allows me to use my monthly allowance in Spain to speak to people in the UK using my UK allowance without roaming charges. I do not need or want a free beer for this information. I give my time and knowledge freely as am retired. If I was going to charge for my time, it would be VERY expensive.

I'm on a data only 10gb 30 day rolling contract, £15pm, think it's still available.
Actually thinking for upgrading to a 4g 2yr contract, as so much faster (if you can get coverage)
£20pm for 15gb, which seems reasonable, free mifi dongle too (y)

That's as I understand it but I have also heard they may not be too rigorous applying this, but given usage is likely to increase now Spain is included things may perhaps change. Depends if their Spanish partners think they are losing business!

Its all becoming clearer now, shame that the Free Drink Offer :LOL:(April 1st ) didn't get understood by all. But the reason for posting was to get some information circulating that would benefit visitors to Spain who need a Data connection at a reasonable rate. Feel like home is in my opinion a great step forward in providing Cheap data and calls Worldwide. Let's hope it continues to grow.

Sorry bit dense on these things, if we buy a contract it looks that it comes with the Huwaei wi-fi free and do they also provide a SIM card?

I dont know about the contract side of it as to cost but lots of MiFi units on ebay new or used and buy a Data Sim Card for various time spans
I have one in my Tablet and was a lot cheaper than at the three store,but go with what you feel at home with .:) And yes works fine in France cant say about Spain not been this Year yet.

Was told in Three shop my 12 month data sim will stop working after 3 months in a country. Move to a new country and the 3 months starts again.

That's a very good idea. Given the problems I am having at the moment trying to register a card to mine I think I will just buy another sim with 3GB valid for 3 months.
