We scanned the internet and put together a collection of feedback from digital nomads about the internet in Goa. Here’s the info:
- Shitty, in the entire area, I found a good co working space in siolim called co-worx, that was a reliable place to work from. Relying on the cellular network is also a long shot…I wouldn’t suggest Goa if you have critical internet work to do.
Internet is good, the problem is the power cuts
- The biggest issue I found were power cuts, but it got better in recent years.
- I’m in the south of Goa… Any good spots for working with good WiFi? Seems impossible to find.
- In South Goa now. The internet is frustrating poor. Been here for 6 seasons. Now tried all service providers in our apartment with no luck. We need it for client Skype calls and day to day online marketing/admin. Very beautiful place but not good if you need a reliable or semi-stong connection.
- I lived in Goa for a month. Goa is a bad idea if you can’t get hold of a good broadband connection. 4G/3G can be very flaky. There are a few co working place in Panjim which is the capital of Goa State.
- Great place, crap internet
- i was in southern india (goa/ kerala) earlier this year and can say that wifi is very unreliable, power-cuts are often and nobody seems to have a generator. getting a simcard can be a life-saver, but still there were quite a few places where i had no signal on my phone. to be fair, i always stayed in really cheap places, so i assume that if you’re willing to spend a bit more and go to some high-end cafes and all you should get better connectivity… if you really need some constant high-speed wifi, i don’t think india’s there yet, but hopefully will be soon! 🙂
- Spent some time in Goa, power cuts every day for hours. But the SIM on my phone was fast and always worked, so it was no problem for me.
- Hello, reality in Goa is not far away from this discussion. Not just WiFi but network connectivity in general is average. However, depending on your usage getting a SIM or WiFi Hotspot is a good option. Cafe WiFi usage is another option you can explore & your hostel or BnB should have decent connection. Always ask about WiFi before booking.
- I stayed in Arpora, Goa for a couple months this year and used my JIO sim card pretty exclusively for internet as most wifi I came across was poor. But the connection with JIO was awesome and quite reliable, as well as very affordable! I only experienced a couple short power cuts over those two months.
