Mobile 3G/4G Internet

You can get connected to the internet via your mobile operator as well depending on your tariff and roaming access (using 3G or HSDPA). If you are staying longer it is worth buying a local sim card as well as arranging some tariff for a mobile broadband. Connection especially in Prague and other large cities is fast and very reliable. Consider Mobile prepaid internet from T-Mobile, o2 or Vodafone. This gives you unlimited access to the internet for around 500 to 800 CZK, monthly (offers vary). It is also possible to activate only one day internet package, paying around 3o to 50 CZK per one day internet access. No contract is required; just buy a prepaid sim card pack or ask staff for assistance.
