 be wary of buying anything from carrefour. remember they dont speak english and returns policy is not the best. mind you they did replace my tv. but only once i discovered the receipt in my uk garage. media mart on the other hand can look you up on their computer. i got my sim card from mas mobil and they speak english, really good service.let me know if you want the number

It might depend on how you want to use the internet. I bought a Carffour Dongle when over in Spain earlier in the summer. It was on special offer at the time at 19 euro's, plus 5 euro's for the sim card. Pay as you go was then either 1 euro a day , or 19 euro's for a month (I think). It was much cheaper than anything I found available elsewhere. Uses Movil, which was piggy backing the Orange network so had no problems with coverage.

The paperwork is all in Spanish, but it really was simple & just a case of putting the sim card in the dongle and plugging it into the laptop & in putting a pin number, which was all quite simple. There are download restrictions, but we only wanted to be able to check emails and look at a few web sites, so it was more than adequate for that. I am used to cable Broadband in UK so have a quick connection here, but the dongle was not that bad for what we used it for. Might struggle if you wanted to download large files/music though.

It will be pot luck whether you will find a member of staff in Carrfour that speaks English, but by pointing at what we wanted on the leaflet available on the counter, plus a bit of pigeon Spannish, managed to make ourselves understood.
