Mobile Broadband SIM on Mahe - Airtel or C&W?

Hi - we have rented an apartment on Eden Island which includes WiFi, but some reports suggest that (landline based) WiFi on Mahe is not great - perhaps it depends upon the service subscribed to? We have our own WiFi dongle for use with Mobile SIMs, and use this often overseas - can anyone please advise if the Mobile Networks offer better Internet Service than landline connections, and if they do, would Airtel or C&W be better for Eden Island? We will need a package for 11 days.

Hi. I myself hold both SIM cards from both service providers but i have noticed that when it comes to data and around the area of Eden, Airtel is the best choice. they also have an airtel showroom which can help for any queries.
