Being online in Jersey

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

I didn’t expect much when I searched for an option for mobile internet access in Jersey (Channel Islands). It wasn’t really important since our B&B had WiFi. And for such a tiny country I didn’t expect much competition and thus bad service from the telcos.

Wrong. So wrong.

Mobile internet access is ridiculously cheap and easy in Jersey. In fact the only problem was finding out where they sell it (Jersey Telecom, 18 Queen Street, St Helier; Mo-Sa 9:00-17:30). I paid only £9.99 for 1GB of traffic. I wish mobile internet in the Netherlands was that cheap. 😉

And it worked just wonderful. No technical problems (like in Scotland), almost no coverage problems (as in Spain) and no trouble with the charging (as in the Netherlands). Great.
