I'm looking to get a wireless internet connection for use in small towns on the national highway, like Moro, Khairpur and others. For use for internet browsing, email, and perhaps emailing and downloading pdf's or pictures (so not much speed is required). I'd like low latency though...
Telenor USB stick - using GPRS/EDGE. I used someone elses and it worked pleasantly well. Telenor seems to have a large EDGE network.
PTCL EVO - using 3G Wireless CDMA Rev A technology, providing data rates of upto 3.1Mbps on download and 1.8Mbps on upload. Downside - only 99 cities is faster internet...
Mobilink - I have GRPS/EDGE on my cellphone and Mobilink has no EDGE coverage outside the big cities, and their GRPS is super slow so crossed them out.
For the device itself, all the companies sell a USB stick. So I guess whichever company I went with I would get that, unless there are better/cheaper devices available in the market?
Does anyone know if I get a cellphone and use that to connect to the internet, saying using the Telenor EDGE network if that works the same or as well as with the USB stick?
Are devices available here into which I can stick in a data sim and use the connection though wifi? Something like this would be great: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MiFi
