Mobile Internet connection


Since I will be staying a month in Mauritius I will definitely need some internet connection. Is it easy to get a mobile sim card with internet access? Is the connection speed good? Are there any carriers that would recommend?

Thanks a lot to the community!


hey, that will be no problem at all, both orange and emtel have good connection though i prefer the emtel sim card and its data packages and it has a good signal connection

Hey Abby,

Thank you so much for your reply, this will be very useful!

Kind regards,

It isn't possible to walk into any old shop and pick up a sim card though. You will have to go to an Orange / Emtel shop and show them your passport. They log it against the sim card for some reason.

Hey Qb,

You are right! I got my Sim card at an orange office in Curepipe. All is well, thanks!


Welcome to Mauritius and I hope you have an enjoyable stay!!


Thanks Vedan!  :D
