Need some info here,

my mate is going over to Thailand and will prob be there for a good part of the year.

He's getting a laptop to take over and wants to keep in touch with all the happenings over here so is gonna go online.

As he is moving around alot he wont have a permanent location, whats the best option for him?

whats the deal on sattalite Internet n that? or blue tooth etc?

i went there about 2 years ago and i am with vodafone and when i landed there a company called DTAC

that replaced vodafone service, and they dam expensive to call home on,but we all know that its dear

anyway abroad but to use a phone on a laptop would be a wallet killer so i used the local internet shops but

remember i was on holiday so it is cheaper on the shop front of things,there service is expensive out there

Internet cafes as suggested is prob the best option. my boss uses his laptop but the firm pays for it so he don't worry about costs etc.

Work.... Where else?
Been twice, both times for a month, cafes are by far the cheapest and easiest option. Less than 50p for an hour.
