I will be in Spain, Madrid for several days.

Someone knows how I can save on internet connection with my ipad?

I read that roaming costs by using the Internet outside your country are very expensive, besides carrying the Ipad throughout the journey was difficult for me because between airport and airport can harm me, because I really need is internet 1 day or 2 and the other not.

Anyone knows if there is a service for renting Ipad in hotels or tourist places in Madrid?

Thanks.

I have read and I found some help on this topic.

I found this (for Rent Ipad in Madrid):
http://www.padinthecity.com/
anyone knows this service?

They offer rent a 3G Ipad with fully and unlimited internet access & a lot of apps for madrid visitors (tourist or Business). Ideally, you do not have to carry your ipad, will pay no roaming fees or charge. the Ipad is delivery to your hotel.

Another option is to buy a pre-paid MicroSim with a local operator (data plan with vodafone, movistar, yoigo, orange), but as I will be only a few days is not a good option, I read that to buy them generally do not have stock and must wait some days or weeks to get it.

Any other idea?
Thanks.

Hi yall!

I wanted to write here, because last month I was in barcelona, and I used Tripneter. (www-tripneter.com)

I found it FUn-tastic!

I could use my iphone, and my wife her Ipad, at the same time. They rent a small device (i kept it in my pocket) that generate some kind of wifi cloud. It was cool having internet while i was watching the sagrat familia church!

Have fun!

I used Travelsim in my Ipad while travelling to Spain, it cost me 0.39 euro per 1 MB. Might work for you too wink.gif
