Thanks Bertrand and Tim.

My o2 roaming phone works in France, and looking at some threads o2 roaming appears to be fine in Morocco esspecially near larger towns and cities..

Looking at that link Tim, I think I shall look into getting the pay as you go modem (usb dongle) from WANA, at about 400 dhm for the modem and then 200 dhm for 30 days unlimited access.

Not travelling untill 2010 therefore open to other suggestions.

Lying in my rooftent using Mobile Broadband in Portugal I was just thinking the same thing, so a great thread ;-)

Is it still correct that Maroc Telecom have the best coverage in the south/desert areas? I think that was the deal last time I was there...

Wana have their own network or piggy back of one of the others?

Quite a good page about wider mobile broadband in Africa:

Seems CDMA is the way forward, or not........

Found this in the above link.

Morocco: Wana was the first operator offering CDMA2000 service. Maroc Telecom and Méditel followed short time later.
