Don't mean to promote another site but this site seems to have some current info.

It's ok. because it's the best site for data in English right now

But i don't have problems to write Spain's 4G/LTE situation on this forum again: 4G/LTE is only available in major towns so far.
On prepaid it's only available for a surcharge on the network operators, not the MVNOs.
movistar and orange: only for contract plans; Vodafone: on some Yuser prepaid plans. Yoigo: on one prepaid plan so far.

You need to know that you pay a big surchage for 4G/LTE in Spain on PAYG so far. Better check before, if it really is available at your specific location.

When Vodafone announced the "Vodafone Internacional Smartphone" SIM they mentioned that it would support 4G. 15€ for the SIM including 1GB and 60 minutes calls to 35 countries (max 30 days):

For 3G data in Spain lycamobile.es seems to be one of the most economic offers this month (Movistar network but no tethering):
1 GB for 3,75€, 2 GB for 7€, 3 GB for 12,50€ (max 30 days).
To get this price, one has to activate a special offer before activating a data pack, sending SMS with the word PLANAHORRO to 2525.

SIMs are available in many local shops like Telecor, HolaMobi, Small World, Europhil, newspaper/tabacco shops, gas stations and Post offices.

I will need to buy a data PAYG SIM for about 5Gb per month and would prefer to use 4G if it's available in the areas where I will be.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Thanks for your replies - very helpful indeed.

Regards

This is strange. Because Vodafone doesn't mention 4G on this tariff with one word on its website. It's quite in contrast to their "yu" line on which 4G is heavily marketed.

The announcement of their new tariff late last year didn't mention 4G either. See here for example: http://ahorro.acierto.com/movil/voda...nutos-15-euros

Last but not least a Google combination of Vodafone Smartphone Internacional and 4G (the term LTE is not so known in Spain) doesn't lead to any hits.

EDIT: This is really Vodafone's biggest secret:

There are very few prepago tariffs open for 4G/LTE and they don't feature it. I don't get it. Thanks for the info.

Go with Tuenti. It has been excellent for me in every way.

Tuenti started activating 4G to all the customers a few days ago:
https://www.tuenti.com/movil/soporte...da?id=94415728

There is also a special promotion for additional 1GB at 4€ valid until 25th of September.

It seems like we will see some more MVNOs starting offering 4G on prepaid in the next weeks.

Hi there. I'm new to the site and hoping someone can give me some up to date information please.
My family has an apartment in Spain and we visit a few times a year for between a few days and up to three weeks at a time. We have a mobile router permanently there. We're looking for a data only sim card that allows video streaming (a lot seem not to), that we can top up when we need.
Currently we go to the local locatorio and buy a prepaid card by Spotfav, usually 10GB costs us €39 and is valid for up to 28 days. This is usually enough for a three week holiday, with the whole family online.
Does anyone know a better solution please?

I've had great luck with Tuenti the last few times I've been to Spain. I haven't tried video streaming but I think the chances of it working on that network are excellent.

Does Vodafone ES offer any kind of roaming option for data?

I'm going for 10 days in Spain and a couple of days at the end in France.

I thought Vodafone in other countries offered this as an add on or something for their prepaid products.
