Trip Report Internet in Europe

Jump to last reply

Having had mixed success with the availability of inexpensive internet service in Europe on previous trips, this time we purchased a Globalgig wifi modem. They have coverage in a limited number of countries, but for our travels in France, Italy, Croatia, Greece and Turkey the service was excellent.

Part of that time we were on a cruise ship, and didn’t want to pay their exorbitant rates for on board internet usage. Our Globalgig didn’t work when we were between ports, but once we reached land there was no problem with receiving a 3G connection. As we were at sea mostly through the night, this wasn’t a problem for us.

For our stays on land in France and Italy there were no problems at all, so for anyone looking for reasonable rates and good coverage for mobile phone and internet usage, I suggest investigating this service. For those who may be concerned, we have absolutely no commercial connection with any telecommunication company.
