Traveling office and Internet

Traveling and working is an easy task in the Philippines.
All you need is a laptop computer and a cell-phone.

SMART, the largest telecoms operator within the Philippines offers GPRS connections even with your prepaid SIM card (SMART Buddy). The connection costs PHP 10 per 30 minutes and connection speed is between 200 and 480kbps. The speed depends on the signal strength. With 4 or 5 bars you can expect 480 kpbs.

My today’s temporary office is at Nature’s Pensionne in Cagayan de Oro on Mindanao Island. See below what you need. From left to right: SMILE, the inflight magazine of Cebu PacificAir, your cellphone with a SMART Buddy SIM, a connection to your laptop computer (bluetooth or USB) and your laptop computer.
