Wi fi at holiday village sharm

I have read that wi fi costs at the hotel are crazy? Is this right?

Most decent hotels should offer free wi fi or at the most a nominal charge per day or per week i would have thought

We are just back the Coral Sea water world and like the HV the wi-fi was really expensive,about £6.00 per hour.

Lots of people hired a modem from Falcon just outside the hotel for £20 per week.

Free wi-fi is available from Burger King,Hard Rock cafe and some of the small cafes in the La Strada shopping centre.

WiFi is going to available free from May 2014.

The small beach cafes have free WiFi and it made me wonder why the hotels dont have it?

HI Knitter44,

It seems a lot of the hotels in Egypt do charge, I am yet to hear of a hotel that doesn't charge?

If you are frequent travellers it may be worth buying outright an unlocked "mi-fi" in the UK & just buying a data sim when you are in the country you are visiting. I do this. Places like Amazon etc you can buy an unlocked "mi-fi" for around £40.00..From memory 5gb data cost around £15.00 in Egypt, you may even be able to get less than 15gb.

You can then connect up to 5 devices to the "mi-fi"

See my link below for an idea of price..


Hope this helps

I wasnt too bothered to be honest as it was good to get away from the TV and PC for 2 weeks!

I just switched my phone on in Three Crowns and once in Burger king where half the hotel guests were drinking coffee!

All the hotels seem to be getting free wi-fi for May 2014 according to the brochures.
