Internet Access

  • Moroccan internet cafes are common, efficient and cheap (Dh5 to Dh10 per hour), usually with reasonable connection speeds.
  • Two irritants for many travellers are the widespread French and Arabic (nonqwerty) keyboards, and Moroccan men’s common use of internet cafes to view pornographic websites and similar.
  • Wi-fi is widely available in midrange and top-end accommodation and in many of the better budget options. It is slowly becoming more widespread in destinations that host lots of foreigners.
  • If you’re bringing a laptop, check the power-supply voltage and bring a universal adapter. USB modems are widely available from mobile-phone shops, and cost around Dh100 for one month's internet access. Buy them at a phone shop from Maroc Telecom, Meditel or Inwi (ID is required – take your passport).
