Internet and sockets in Antigua and Barbuda

Antigua and Barbuda

Will you need a power socket adapter when you travel to Antigua and Barbuda? And what is the availability of internet and wi-fi networks?

Electricity and sockets

The local electricity grid operates on 230V and 60Hz, which are values that the vast majority of commonly used appliances in Europe can handle without difficulty.

Sockets and plugs in Antigua and Barbuda are of type A and B. Corresponding types are mainly used in North and Central America, China or Japan. Travellers from other countries will therefore need an adapter.

  • A and Bsockets.
  • Voltage: 230 V
  • Frequency: 60 Hz


Free wi-fi is available in all hotels, resorts and the vast majority of private guesthouse and apartment operators will offer it.

In public places, free wi-fi is available in restaurants or fast-food outlets.

Prepaid data SIM cards are offered by the Caribbean mobile operator Digicel, which unfortunately does not have a branch at the airport. However, you need to register on the Digicel website and then purchase a prepaid package.

The cheapest 3-day package with 3GB of data comes out at 10 xcd, while a 7-day package with 7.5GB costs 45 xcd.
