Internet Access

If you can get a phone signal in Fiji, you can normally find somewhere to get online. In remote areas, prepare for internet access to be limited, expensive (due to the need for connection by satellite) or completely non-existent.

* Budget resorts in Nadi also have internet access, some using prepay cards that deduct credits in 15-minute allotments (which works out at around $10 an hour).

* If you’re carrying your own laptop or iPad you can sign up for a prepay account with a service provider such as Connect, Unwired Fiji or Vodafone. The latter sells modem sticks for $79 and 1GB of data costs $15.

* Many midrange and top-end resorts have internet connections, so you simply need to plug in your computer.

Internet cafes

Internet cafes are fairly common in Suva, Lautoka and Nadi; competition means that you can jump online for as little as $3 per hour. Outside of urban centres access is more limited, slower and pricier, reaching up to $8 per hour.

Modems

If you want to carry the internet with you, consider buying a local modem from either Unwired Fiji (sold in Digicel shops) or Vodafone. Free-standing modems or USB stick modems are available, connecting at up to 4G. Prices start from around $50 per month for 14GB on a pay-as-you-go plan.

Wifi

Wi-fi is increasingly widespread in Nadi and Suva. Hotels may or may not offer it as standard, and there's often a fee to get online. On island resorts, wi-fi is more likely to be restricted or expensive.
