Thumbs up 3G prepaid PAYG internet experience in Morocco - 08-05-2010, 11:15

Hi

Here's a bit about 3G prepaid PAYG internet access in Morocco in 2010 with Maroc Telecom

3G PAYG prepay internet in Morocco

So far pretty reasonable experience, with a few quirks here and there. Competitors are private firms Meditel and Inwi.

Morocco made the jump from "no data with little gprs" to 3G - 3,5G without EDGE in between.

Cheers!

Now updated how to recharge with Maroc Telecom 3G menara data simcard.

Meditel as well as INWI do not sell 3G simcards, only 3G USB dongles / sticks locked to their network.

After nearly 3 months in Morocco, I can recommend Maroc Telecom's 3G prepaid Menara card.

€ 18,- / month for unlimited 3G access with reasonable performance and coverage. The network is a bit overbooked so it gets slow at peak hours - but overall it's price and performance is worth it.

The new INWI (former WANA) is trying to get a piece of the action also selling EVDO based USB modems. (no simcard required) A somewhat alien standard in a dominated UMTS/HSPA region since it can not be re-used in nearby Europe. For US travelers INWI might be an option - though coverage is limited to the bigger cities.

I will try it next time!

In the mean time I do not recommend Méditel for prepaid internet in Morocco. I was not able to activate the data service after visiting 3 different Méditel branches in Tanger (and each branch tried to activate it in a different way). I was told that my phone wasn't supported.


Mobile internet sim cards:
INT: abroadband, NL: Simyo, *bliep, BE: Colruyt Mobile, MEDIONmobile, LUX: Orange, PL: mBank Mobile,
DE: Congstar, MEDIONmobile, IE: Vodafone, CH: OK Mobil, SwissCom, SE: Telia, ES: MásMovil,
GR: Cosmote, IT: TIM, RO: Vodafone, RS: mt:s, BY: Privet, UA: Kievstar, MD: Moldcell

Feel free to consult me about sim cards in the Benelux and Poland.
