Guide to Living and Teaching English in Brazil

June 25, 2013

Internet and Wi-fi

Most urban homes and rented accommodation have internet, and an increasing number have wi-fi. Where internet access is not available there will usually be an internet café in the nearest village. Smartphones and mobile phones should work in most places if they are activated for roaming, but there are still areas of Brazil where there is no coverage at all.

Voltage
Brazil is a large country and the voltage varies from state to state and sometimes within states. It can be 110v or 220v. Check with individual accommodation. Plugs used to be either 2-pin US style or elongated European. However more recently a 3-pin version has emerged as standard.
