Undoubtedly, you will need to connect to the web during your
stay in The Gambia. Servers used to be slow dial-up are now
operating at '4G' speeds at a minimum, but can still be slow
during most of the daytime. For best results, go early in
the day and save your work or long emails often—noting is
worse than a power outage right before sending detailed email
report of your adventures. Most places have generators, but
sometimes they take a few seconds (or minutes) to kick on.
Prices for surfing the web are fairly cheap, about D20 for
half an hour in most places.
Great atmosphere (an actual café serving cold soft drinks,
and food if you’re lucky). Very quick server, though a little
far from the hotel on 76 Kairaba Avenue.

• UTG computer lab
Tel: 4372213 or 4395062
The UTG has a free computer lab for student use,
internet included. It is located in the Administration
building on MDI Road. Pretty slow, but you certainly
can’t beat the price.
• YMCA Cyber Café
This is a decent place, especially if you’re on
MDI Road for classes—the prices are the cheapest
around. The bad news is this place is rather small,
has only a few computers, and is usually crowded
with school kids.
