MI-FI Mobile Broadand Availability
 
I am travelling to Barcelona and Girona next month and the place I am staying this time will not have wi-fi so I am looking into the possibility of buying a PAYG MI-FI router to use with my iphone (in wifi only mode to save on horrendous roaming costs).

In the UK I had looked at getting the MIFI on PAYG from the 3 network and the price was around 70 for the MIFI "dongle".

I have been trying to find the same device through Orange, Vodafone or Movistar but have only found contract options.

Can anyone suggest another operator to look at who sell a MIFI on PAYG. If my only option is to get a standard usb dongle on PAYG then I will have to take my netbook but as I am flying cattle class on Ryanair and only carrying luggage I would rather travel as light as possible.

What about buying one of those FON routers which you set up at home and then in return you have free access to the FON network in Spain? No good I suppose if it doesn't give you access to the net while in your piso.

Thanks Stephen but that's not as flexible a solution as I was looking for.

I think I have figured out how to get what I need. I can get an unlocked MIFI router here and then head to Carrefour when I get to Girona and buy a SIM only prepay mobile internet SIM and it will only cost me 1Euro per day. Ideal!

Unless I have misunderstood this page:

I hope it is right as I could get no useful information from Vodafone, Orange or Movistar.
