  1. Hi Guys,

    I'm deploying to Bastion in May. Is it worth taking a laptop to get on the internet. Is there wireless access, and if so what extra equipment do I need.

    I know there have been previous posts regarding this but nobody has given a definate yes or no.

    Cheers
     
  2. here now i have wireless in my tent, while's away the hours and my laptop is wireless enabled however $5 for an hour...bit steep me thinks
     
  3. Thanks for that!

    But what about electricirt - do you have acess to standard british 3 pin plugs or do you need an adaptor?
     
  4. What job are you going out there to do?
    If you are put in tier 2 accom then you get free wireless.
    And its all 3 pin plugs as far as i could tell when i was out there.
