Internet access in coolangatta

We are staying at Coolangatta - Reflection on the Sea apartments for 2 weeks vacation in Gold Coast. Unfortunately the apartment does not provide wireless or wired internet access.

Is is it possible to rent a 3G data card for 15 days in Coolangatta? There is a McDonald near the Reflection on the sea apartments - is it wi-fi enabled? Any other options for broadband internet access? Thanks.

Thats slack for a new building not to provide broadband!

Anyhow McDonalds does have paid wireless available.

There is an internet cafe in Griffith St and $2 ADSL machines available in the Showcase shopping centre.

Some of the cafes also have free wireless.

There is an internet cafe on the corner of Griffith and Warner streets Coolangatta, near Montezumas Restaurant, their phone number is 07 55992001 or you can google Coolangatta Internet Cafe, cheers Ella

I agree with you Surfoz that a new building of this quality should have wireless available - although they do have dial up.

mkp75 - Gloria Jeans and McDonalds downstairs have a broadband "hotspot" and there is an internet cafe across the road.

Thanks Surfoz and Beach8um. I will use the services suggested by you during the day time. However, due to timezone differences with my home country, I may end up using the internet at odd hours. Any idea how reliable is dialup access and can I subscribe to any of the service online for a short period? I agree with both of you and surprised to find that the apartment does not have broadband cabled or wireless.

You can get a dialup service through the hotel for short periods, but it is a lot slower than Broadband. It is reliable.
