INWI in Morocco - mobile broadband with flair

Did I tell you I'd succumbed to smartphones? Not one, but two! I bought an HTC Desire in April 2010, but got completely fed up with it within a year because the battery failed, AND it complained of low memory whenever I tried to access Twitter.

So I bought a Samsung Galaxy II. What a phone! I can't imagine being without it now. And it never complains about shortage of memory.

I have been obliged to take a contract with 3mobile, as 3mobile was the most competitively priced at the time. But then I also have to put up with dilatory speeds and frequent lapses of coverage.

Which is what makes my experience with mobile broadband provider INWI in Morocco so remarkable. Friends, if you are travelling to Maroc, be sure to look for the INWI booth in the arrivals hall. I hope your experience will be the same as mine.

No problem about providing a 3G mobile broadband SIM for just 5 days' use. The guy switched the SIM in my Galaxy for me, and got the phone working. I had constant, unfailing mobile broadband coverage the whole time I was in the Tangier area last October, even when out in the middle of apparently nowhere.

No British mobile service provides this level of service in my experience. And it was only £6 for 5 days' use. Terrific when you're visiting for short periods.

The SIM will still be valid when I return, (I hope), and I can simply recharge it. YEESS!
