Dee,

Does he do wireless internet, we haven't got a landline yet. I thought perhaps I could use a dongle? at first until I get something sorted out, need to be able to contact my son in Australia.

G3 Turkcell but gets over loaded, try the the other mobile company 'Tel Sim' (I think, more recent so not so over subscribed) When setting up skype put your country as Turkey and you'll avoid VAT. UK Credit card okay though. Do NOT touch Voip Wise.

I think with all of them it seems to depend where you are. I use 3G and during the day its great. I am in Catalkoy and once the evening comes my download speeds are so bad i can't even get on line let alone use the internet and yet there are some members who have superb service with 3G.



It may help to let people know what area you require coverage?

I am a bit new to all this mobile broadband so don't understand the process - do you have to take your laptop into Borat (or other broadband provider) and leave it with him for a couple of days?

We called in to a shop advertising 3G with our laptop. Paid 149ytl for dongle and 70ytl for a months internet (only staying that long). They loaded whatever they needed and got it all set up for us before we left the shop. Only took minutes. Works well although not as fast as landline broadband in UK. Worth checking that it will work where you live before paying out. When we return will only need to pay a months access charge. I imagine service will get faster with more and better aeriels.

laptagal you will need a dish installed outside so Borat will come to you..and he will do all that needs to be done at your house.

Hattikins,



I'm assuming that the main purpose is to call your son in Australia & vice versa in which case my recommendation is for you to attach a couple of routers at each end attached to a standard BT phone. You don't need anything that expensive - my best guess is a couple of Draytek Vigor 2600V which you could get on Ebay c.20-40 each and hang a telephone off each one. Draytek are big in Oz (judging by their Draytek forum) & UK. Configuring shouldn't be difficult.



Main advantage is that the PC's don't need to be on for you to ring each other (the router will take a lot less juice to run) and telephone cable runs are easy to run long. With a 2600v there are 2 phone sockets too! These are very old routers, and very solid. I've a couple over 6 six years old and still functioning very well.



Internet here varies a lot with location. My recommendation is Nethouse for Karsiyaka - don't know how they perform in other areas.

Thanks for the reply Dee and Allen but I think we may be talking about two different things. RTDDCI gave me the answer I was looking for regarding mobile broadband access (message 11) I think accessing the internet through a dish is something else. However, as I said, I am not too well up on this sort of thing.

Hattikins,



I just thought to correct myself that at this (TRNC) end the 2600V is not suitable as it's an ADSL modem - most systems here are cable or equivalent. I'm currently using the latest model which is too expensive and not necessary for your stated uses. I'm sure your son can pick the right one for you - if not I'll look up the cable equivalent of the 2600V for you.

Thanks folks for all your help.

NoNowt, I may contact you again after I've spoken to my son if that's ok with you.

I've used the 3G on our laptop to phone home to the UK using Skype. Was most impressed, worked well. Can also surf the internet to my hearts content in my apartment. Certainly beats having to go into Girne to an internet cafe.

Have read this thread with interest. Could anyone perhaps help me ?

I do not have a landline or broadband at my house in TRNC. A friend is coming over from the UK in May for 1 month and will bring his laptop.

Are there any wi-fi spots in TRNC where he can access the Internet for free ?

Can he buy a dongle and get connected just for 1 month ?

Thanks

Bille

Thats exactly what I did, bought a dongle and paid for a month. See message 11 above. There are hotspots around i.e. some hotels and the golf club but don't know how they work with a UK wireless laptop.

Hello - i am looking to move to North Cyprus and wanted to know about broadband connection speeds available at home and at internet cafes? Can you get 2-10Mbit/s? or even 10+ Mbit/s+?

One or 2 of sunnycyprus staff have a big attitude problem. When things go wrong "It's your computer - not their server"

I have never found that problem with Sunny Cyprus they have always been courteous & quick in working out problems.

I see by your file that you are a computer guy so the guess is you work for a competitor.
