Internet connections from Afghanistan

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Could anybody tell me what connections are available from the Afg theatre and what email service works? Don't seem to be having much luck with hotmail or aol at the moment, any clues?
  2. Are you actually in theatre? Where are you trying to connect from/to?

    If you are on a UK military base, the internet connection is provided by Paradigm and you shouldn't have any problems accessing the usual webmail services.
    If you are trying to connect to Afghan civvi internet, it can be a bit dodgy sometimes, with connections dropping out. In Kabul the link is generally a wireless one from wherever you are to a satellite repeater station which then connects to the internet via Germany.
  3. Try to get a UK civi/Afg Brit mil link , don't seem to be having much luck with hotmail at the moment.
  4. Just a quick update, yahoo chat seems to work. :thumright:
