Welcome to Isaan LIve via 3G from Northeast Thailand

ThumbnailWhen the flood hit Northeast Thailand in 2011 a Interenet connections were few and far between. Wifi is still not plentiful in the region and back then a GPRS was often hard to establish. Back in February 2012 AIS was introducing 3G in the Khon Kaen area, The 40 Thai National Games and Songkran in 2012 I was able to broadcast Live via Twitcast. The AIS 3G coverage was soon oversubscribed and difficult to transmit over so I added TRUE to my list and started twitcsting live around the region.

Reporting from Northeast Thailand in the The Twentyfirst Century

I first started documenting life in Isaan some 13 yeears ago with Southeastasiatimes.com and a twisted pair internet connection to Bangkok that cost me $US1.00 a minute during daytime hours. Today I am connected 24 hours a day 7 days a week for about $US3.00 a day, which includes some form of 3G coverage with either TRUE at 10 gigafarts a month and CAT with 5 a month. I can live broadcast via Twitter and twitcast from about 75% of the landmass in Northeast Thailand and post to Worpress from a Samsung Galaxy Cameraor a Samsung Note ar from the 10 inch screen on my Asus Transformer. I have traveled the region for well more than a dozen years now and do not need much; an aircon room with a hot shower and sit down toilet does me fine. Ilike to be within walking distance of food and beer options, but carry emergency supplies as well.

Previous episodes have been in Video format and I will be returning to that format again as quickly as logical.

This week we will take a look at what is on my Samsung Note. I am not going to discuss any of the applications, in depth. The idea is to give you an idea of the things I use on a daily basis and some of the items I will be discussing in the near future. For sure, I will soon be discussing the whole world of Picasa and keeping track of and sorting photos.

Speech to text and the various options there is something else I have been testing and will talk about in the near future. Another one I have overlooked is Keyboards and what works.

More about 3G in Northeast Thailand

As I posted I purchased CAT CDMA unlimeted 3G service for 590 Baht a month post paid and have been trying to suss it out. I am periodically getting a R in my signal whih Android tells me means roaming, but when I look at my Netowk Signal app it is telling me that it is a GPRS connection, but I can still twitcast which generally needs a 3G connection or wireless to transmit.
