Affordable wireless broadband Internet has finally arrived to Armenia!
I picked this up last night and am very pleased… It only costs 9000 drams per month (about $23 USD) for a 7.2 Mbps connection anywhere, anytime (far more affordable than in the U.S., France, and Lebanon). The USB modem comes for free with a 1 year contract. Even better, the SIM can be removed and used with any Internet-ready mobile phone such as the iPhone. It took me about 20 minutes to sign up for service and 5 minutes to setup on my laptop. At 7am, I was downloading at 500 KiloBytes per second (4.0 Mbps)!
Thank you Orange!
