still on a roll

In the 15 minutes I've been on this rutiera, the guy behind me had to tell me to be careful because my internet stick was going to break if it kept pressing on the arm rest and also that my notebook had slid in the aisle a few seats in front of me.

Seriously. On. a. roll.

Only 1 1/2 hours to go...

    hi, i am going back to Moldova soon, after being away for a long time, and I just wanted to ask a technical question, if you don't mind: do you use the internet stick from Orange or Moldocell? are you overall happy with the quality and the price? did you have to sign a contract with them before you could get this kind of internet?

    Thank you in advance,


  2. Olesea-

    I have an Orange stick because it is the only one that would allow me, as a foreigner, to sign a contract. As a Peace Corps Volunteer, we had to pay for an entire year up front (I think because they were worried we wouldn't pay them). I got the fastest stick and the most amount of allowable downloads, and I'm pretty happy with it. Hopefully we will get 3G in my village soon... then it will be AWESOME!

    Welcome back :)

  3. Thanks a lot. I just wanted to clarify: the internet stick that you have right now is not based on 3G? what kind of internet is it? if it is 3G, then you can't use it in your village, is that right?

    thanks again

  4. It's 3g. But we don't have 3g here yet (coming in September!). I can use it in my village it just doesn't work fast. However, I am at the school now and it works much faster... so I need to find a better hotspot at home.
