    Has anyone used MIO for Internet from Costa Linda

    I will be staying at the Costa Linda, and I was just wondering if anyone has used the MIO device for Internet service from the Costa Linda. In the past I have always purchased the Setar Internet card, but their service has not been that good. Also, with the Setar card you can only connect 1 device at a time. The MIO device looks good, but I do not know if it will be able to pick up a signal from the CL.

    Are you sure it isn't a limitation with your device? We use a SETAR sim card in our Nexus 4 phone and it allows us to tether multiple devices (two iPads and a Nexus 7) to share internet access (i.e. the Nexus 4 acts as a wifi hotspot).

    Costa Linda has improved their wifi service and now has a plan that allows you to use two devices at one time. We found the wifi to be much better on our last visit in Feb. I've never tried MIO, but it sounds interesting.

    MIO works great anywhere on the island even on the beach.

    I used a SIM in my IPhone 4S 2 years ago. At that time, Setar did not allow using the Phone as a HotSpot. I did send them an Email, and they did indicate that I can now use the Phone as a HotSpot. The thing I do not like about Setar is that their SIM card expires if you do not use it in a year. Which means that I would have to buy a new SIM every time I return to Aruba. The Setar Internet card is not a SIM. It is a card that allows you to purchase either 1 week or 1 month of WI-FI service.
