If you are referring to public wifi,then lots of the cafe's and bars have it now for free. sometimes you need a password,sometimes it is open.

If you are referring to getting an internet connection at home,then that question is away from me,as I live in my camper van :-)

Hi, it's pretty easy to get WIFI for your home, you need to subscribe to one of the many providers either over the phone or by going into one of their stores (for example Bouygues, Orange or SFR).

You can find a list of providers here https://www.angloinfo.com/how-to/france/riviera/housing/setting-up-home/internet

That's great, thank you.  Do you know roughly how long it takes to get up and running, or does it differ by supplier?

Call Orange. You get a telephone line and depending on where you live, fibre optic internet for 35 EUR per month. They can usually do it within a week or so quicker without fibre.

I am not trying to knock what has been said by any means,and I ask this with education in mind.

Should the question be " how do I get hooked up with an internet connection " ?

Isnt wifi the signal that goes from your computer to other devices?

Please excuse me asking,its just good to know these things nowadays.

Bonne soiree tout le monde x

I have an inkling that it may be so,but dont know for sure,but hey,as you say,you have got the answer you were looking for and that it is indeed good.

Hope you sort it out very soon and get a bargain to boot.

Love and light
