Does anyone have experiance of using a dongle in Spain for internet access.  If so do they work well?

I bought an Orange Dongle in June last year and put 25euro's on it, only use the laptop occasionally for checking e-mails when back in Spain during September and November, maybe 6 or 7 days use in total. From memory it costs 2 or 3 euros per day to use so may need topping up again on next visit but this can be done on-line. Found the laptop worked fine with the dongle and far cheaper than signing up to a contract when only needing occasional use, may even continue to use the dongle when we eventually move to Spain then I will not spend too much time on the computer as hopefully I will have better things to do.

 Friend of mine uses the Carrefour dongle, as they always have bargains on the top-up, ie 30 euros use for 20 euros, and it doesn't expire.  Some of them the top-up expires after a month so be careful.   Carrefour one uses Orange network, and can be topped up in-store or online.

I have used a vodafone dongle , works well for me.

When you buy the dongle it includes 3 months access  but with  1 GB limit


Then it's 25 euro  for 30 days access and 1 GB or about 20 euro fo 500MB.

As with all sim cards in Spain, identifaction is required  but with vodafone  it is necessary to top up at least once in about 9 months.

 Yes I have a dongle has worked very well from the in the market in Formentera. I bought for 60euros

as a guy had returned it and was going back to UK  and had topped it up so have used it for six months

using the notepad every day for banking emails and facebook.  Have not had to top it up as yet and

it is with the phone shop.
