Looking at coming over in a few weeks and will have my laptop with me. If I do a little bit of work whilst there I can stay longer.
However from past experiences the wifi in certain places is a bit hit and miss. Is there something I can buy there that I can use for
about 3 weeks that will give me a decent wifi conection? Also where can I get it from? thanks.

You could buy a MiFi and get a local SIM.

Vodafone Spain no longer offers their tourist SIM . That used to be an easy option.

Do you have roaming on your phone? If you do with enough data turn on the hotspot. That basically turns your phone into a MiFi.

Depending on where you will be located on the island, fibre is now available in many parts and cafes and bars are installing it to attract customers.   In addition 'co-working spacex' are opening up - we have had two start up in Cotillo in the last 18 months.  

Specify where you will be staying and you might get more recommendations. 

Also, look at Digimobil.es as they offer a dara only SIM for (I think) 20e for 40Mb.

You will find excellent Internet access in many cafés bars etc, as both Corralejo and Caleta are full fibre. There are co-working places in Corralejo, but I'm not familiar with the situation in Caleta (hopefully others will post info).

Good luck.

In Caleta plenty of cafes and bars with good wifi, as to co-working / hot desks I am not sure as they are not something I have needed to use.

Digimobil.es/movil offer a Digi Combo sim card which offers 2000 minutes of national and international calls a month together with 100GB of data for 20 Euros a month. Any unused data rolls over to the following month on a minimum payment of 5 Euros.

Using our phone as a hotspot, we use this for our home wifi in El Cotillo and it's brilliant. We watch plenty of Football via the firestick, UK TV and some films and 100GB is as much as we need. No contract is signed as it is PAYG and can be left for months unused, before being immediately reactivated on a future month's payment.

In our experience, often more reliable in El Cotillo than hard wired broadband connections too!

If only Digi looked after the water supply!
