    Default Mobile Sattelite Internet

    Howdy..

    Anybody know how and where one can get hold of a mobile internet solution, if I can put it that way. Working in Nigeria, on a rig, want to try and get my own internet, one on the rig real slow. Needs to be portable, only for internet, have laptop. Any companies you know about, anybody currently using something similar?

    I want to wish for something affordable, but I know its a bit o coin to get it. Any info will be helpfull.

    Thanks
    Wouter

    Wouter... I'm not sure if they can offer something affordable for individuals, but contact our Nigeria Office at (01) 270 1333 or on www.mwebnigeria.com. The Afsat link would be especially pertinent for you.
