Hey everybody

I am busy with the purchase of an apartment in Santa Luzia.  Is there one internet provider in the area or are there options?  If there are options, recommendations would be very much appreciated.  I only need an internet connection with Wifi as I intend to work from my apaprtment.

Thanks!

So it looks like there are only 2 realistic options - Vodafone with a mobile internet connection or Meo with ADSL (max 24MBPS).  I must admit that the service I received from Meo to get setup and make an appointment was very good.  I have only just started learning PT so the person that assisted had to speak English and was very helpful so super impressed as I hav read a bunch of bad service reviews about Meo.

Hi,

I am with MEO on ADSL in Salir and I have had nothing but good service from them !  I have a MEO mobile as well as TV.  I get full bars and 4G+ on the phone at home.  This all works well, most of the time, but evenings can be a bit hit and miss for streaming delays.

I work from home there now and decided to buy a cheap 4G mobile router, I now also have a MEO unlimited 'data only' sim (30 Euro/month).  This I use for my Teams meetings and also to watch Dutch (Ziggo Go) tv, as we still have a contract there for our apartment in Rotterdam and use it to watch BBC and Dutch tv.

This works perfectly (except for some Friday evenings??- we guess related to the lottery show?). The highest limited usage was 50 and cost 25 Euro/month - so unlimited seemed the better option.  

I am sure Vodafone will have similar deals - it all depends on who gives the best 4G signal at your location.

I hope this helps

Ian
