  • Sweden/scandinavia mobile internet?

    When mostly driving around in scandinavia Im choosing between 3 solutions

    GPRS - reliable I guess, but slow

    3G card inserted in my laptop - guess quite fast but not reliable outside town

    Wifi - cool but also useless outside access points in cities


    So... go with all 3 is ok with me if its possible to in some way easily switch (hopefully automatically in some way depending on current signal available so that I can stay inside my Front End)


    *Im thinking of gprs via bluetooth dongle
    *3gcard- dont know... wireless built in antenna or do I use phone?
    *Wifi - guess ready to use - Ill just buy the one that reaches most meters away?

    Don't you guys have a great cell phone company over there called "Campuz Mobile"?

    I think they offer reletively decent data charges...

    Peace,

      We have about the same three options in the US, as well.
      WiFi is becoming a better option in metropolitan areas because public WiFi networks are being rolled out lots of places.

      I use my GPRS/EDGE connection via bluetooth in my truck and it works well. It's not blazingly fast, but it's far better than dial-up. It's probably about as fast as an ISDN line, probably a bit faster.
      Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
      How about the Wiki?

            I have no idea. You should contact your cellular service provider and ask them.
            I can only state my experiences with the equipment and service I have.
