Voltage & Internet

Electrical Current

Jordan’s electricity supply is 220 volts/50 cycles AC. Sockets are generally of the two-pronged European variety, while a variety of other sockets and plugs—especially the 13 amp square three-pinned plug—are in use. To be safe, bring a multi-purpose adapter. American equipment requires both an adaptor and a transformer. Most varieties of adaptors and transformers are readily available in electrical shops throughout Jordan. Electrical current in Jordan is reliable and uninterrupted.

Internet

The kingdom ranks as one of the countries whose fixed Internet network performance is improving at an advanced level. Mobile broadband network download and upload speeds in Jordan are slightly above the average in Middle East and Africa (MEA) countries. Internet is widely used throughout the country which can be seen through the hundreds of internet café’s dotted around all major towns and cities. All five star hotels have internet access in business centers. Many have access in rooms either by cable or Wi-Fi. Hotels of lower categories will usually have internet access as well but should be inquired about prior to arrival.
