Internet in Tahiti

For the past few years Tahiti and its islands have been enjoying unlimited high-speed Internet service, widely distributed throughout the islands, thanks to the Honotua fibre optic submarine communications cable system that connects the islands to Hawaii, USA, replacing satellite connections.

There are two Internet service providers in French Polynesia: Mana and Viti (operating since 2012), which offer various service plans to keep you connected during your stay.

Internet cafés exist on the most frequently visited islands (Tahiti, Moorea, Bora Bora, etc.). Most hotels now have Internet centres or offer Wi-Fi connections, sometimes at no charge.

3 prepaid Internet access services are available and you can use them from an Internet Kiosk (Post Office access points) or from any Wi-Fi enabled device (notebook, pad, smartphone, etc.). These access points exist at several locations and are accessible using online purchased codes or prepaid cards.

  • Manaspot: Available on any island that has a French Polynesia Post Office (virtually all inhabited islands). 
  • Hotspot WDG: 300 access points throughout the islands. Available in many hotels.

  • Iaoraspot: used mainly by cruise passengers and yachties. There are hotspots on all the Society Islands and on Hiva Oa, Nuku Hiva, Rangiroa, Fakarava, Tikehau and Mangareva.

Viti service plans: 
4G Internet available using a 4G dongle within the Viti coverage area (certain Tahiti areas only)
Prepaid Viti 2Mbps broadband Internet roaming cards :

3G Coverage: Package deals are offered by Vini, the mobile operator. However, they are reserved for people staying in Tahiti and its islands for several months (via a subscription system).
