They will be virtually the same. Actually you can go right to the source yours...

Is 3G headed for Udon? (Or already there)?

So, at Tesco yesterday the girl at the TRUE booth told me that 3G is now available in Udon. Can't believe this is true. Can anyone confirm /deny? If true, what download speed are you getting.


(I left TRUE about 2 years ago as their EDGE service was slower than the dial-up service I had 20 years ago)

Thailand on money-laundering blacklist

Lots of new coinstruction going on here in Udon some of which I really consider somewhat ill conceived. ie. the downtown mall just off the fountain circle which is just about vacant. I'm not saying this may be a great way to launder money but... Build something with dirty money and then sell it lat...

Swimming pool.
Satellite TV would be even better. Also, electrical, TV and internet outlets in each room.

Trip to Vientiane

One more thing for the OP's benefit, when you get a driver to take you from the Lao border to Vientiane, retain him to take you to the attractions (that will not be in walking distance to where you stay). Believe it or not, it is cheaper to hire an air-conditioned mini-van than to take the tuk-tuks....

Trip to Vientiane

Well I live in Vientiane. The comment about restaurants is ignorant. Vientiane has a number of excellent restaurants and indeed the range is FAR better than Udon. Alcohol - wine, beer and spirits - are far cheaper than in Thailand. Everyday goods are a bit dearer than in Udon. There are, however, s...

Is 3G headed for Udon? (Or already there)?

True snake but to get an edge signal you must have a 3G simcard. What I'm saying is that the 3G signal is far too weak, even in the city. But the E (or 2,5) is stronger and sufficient to surf on the web and use skype etc. Not much good for downloading though! There has been so much disinformation p...

Is 3G headed for Udon? (Or already there)?

Been using Dtac, Happy 3G for a couple of months. Works good for browsing here, 10km outside Udon. But Skype only works with audio. For video it's too slow. At it's peak i can get out 25kB/s from it. As I mentioned previously we have been using DTAC 3G for about 1,5 months now. Works OK (even Skype...
