Hey @Alejandrow

So there are two main telecom providers in Kathmandu (in terms of reach). Ncell and NTC, my experience with NTC has been below average but Ncell used to be fairly reliable. Last year I could do Skype video calls. Although, when I was last in Kathmandu in September I felt Ncell wasnโ€™t as fast (locals tell me that they have lowered the prices and mass adoption has lowered speeds). Saying that you are still better off with Ncell. If you do buy it, make sure to get one of the 3G packages this will certainly make it more affordable.

There are quiet a few cafรฉs you can visit in Kathmandu too. Many spread across Thamel or Jhamsikhel (Jhamel). Although, my favourite cafe to work out is Lakuri Cafe (opposite Russian Embassy) or Imago Dei Cafe Gallery.

All the best mate!

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 6d 5 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Where do I get good legal advice/support to have a long-term stay?


in Lisbon, Portugal by @mzorrilla | 1mo 1 month ago | 1 comment

Hello, everyone!

My idea is to stay as low as 6 months and as long as a year (maybe, who knows) over Lisbon after doing some analysis from many cities in Europe.

I'm an Argentinian and Chilean (both nationalities) so... no Euro-pass for me (getting my Italian nationality could take 2 years easily). I'm also a remote worker and I have a really good income (I work for a Silicon Valley company) so I can show more than enough resources to stay in the country.

Everything I see online doesn't inspire me much confidence (most sites looks a bit scammy) and this is not a "vacation stay"... I want to be clear my head far away from Argentina right now. If someone has a good website, recommendations, etc I will super appreciate.

Thanks in advance!

Experiences using 3G amplifier in remote areas?


by @adrienbetweets | 4yr 3 years ago | 0 comments

Iโ€™m considering traveling with a 3G amplifier.

Has anyone been testing such device while traveling?

I know it sounds ridiculous to travel with such thing, but it would allow one to still be able to work while in rather unusual places, far away from coworking spacesโ€ฆ

Cheers,
Adrien

How is the quality of wifi & 3G in Amed, Bali?


in Amed, Indonesia by @adrienbetweets | 4yr 3 years ago | 3 comments

Hi all!

I am considering going for 1+ month in Amed (to get more into freediving).

I need to be able to make Skype calls & other work-related tasks. I need a speed equivalent to one allowing me to watch Youtube videos.

Ubud is way more connected in comparison, so I donโ€™t expect anything wonderful.

Wondering if anyone has done this before & if yes: what 3G
provider they used, or what cafe/restaurant/hotel had a good/reliable
enough wifi connection.

Note that I went to Amed last year & the 3G connection on the 2 providers I used at the time was terrible. Thatโ€™s why Iโ€™m asking for help.

Thanks in advance!

p.s. I also posted this question on travel.stackexchange.com/questions/82403/quality-of-wifis-3g-reception-in-amed-bali

Is Kathmandu in Nepal a good place for digital nomads?


in Kathmandu, Nepal by @karim | 4yr 4 years ago | 11 comments

I am thinking to go to Nepal and grow my online business there. I could not find Kathmandu in the nomad list so I hoped someone here could tell about his/her experience in this city or Nepal in general. Pros/cons?

How is the quality of 3G in Myanmar?


in Myanmar by @adrienbetweets | 5yr 4 years ago | 7 comments

I plan to go to Myanmar and I would like to know about the current state of the 3G network in this country.

Is it anywhere possible to work from Myanmar with a local 3G sim card (yes, using it as a hotspot)?

I donโ€™t need extremely fast internet, but I have been told Myanmar is very much behind regarding many topicsโ€ฆ

Best 3G/4G carrier for Bali?


by @jruz | 5yr 4 years ago | 7 comments

Hi, Im going to spend 2 month in Bali mainly in Ubud.
Iโ€™m getting a Hubud membership but donโ€™t want to be trapped there all the time, so I want some reliable mobile connection.

So far Iโ€™ve been checking out:

From the coverage maps on their websites, seems they all cover pretty well the Kuta area, but but other areas not.

My usage is mainly: Github, Slack and one daily Video Call.

Do you have some recommendation on this? I was thinking on Indosat.

Thanks!
