Mobile Internet in Iran through GPRS/EDGE
Monday, 13 April 2009
As we already experienced in Iran in 2007, getting connected to the internet, using the mobile internet services of network operator MTN Irancell, is not that difficult. Although the private operated network doesn’t have full coverage, for those who travel with a laptop / Netbook / PDA it’s a good alternative next to finding Internet Café’s. This for a fairly reasonable price and internet connection speed wherever in the MTN Irancell network. Here you find our experience with MTN Irancell in march 2009.

In April 2009 we crossed the Sero – Esendere border in Kurdistan. Because of winter times we decided to stay as far south possible to escape as much of the cold. We tried to navigate the Kurdish region, tightly gripped by the Turkish army. The route takes us over the 400 / E90 towards Cizre taking a shortcut over the 30-51 from Asagi Dereli. Here you find our story from 2 days in heavily militarized region close to the Iraq border.

A year ago we took the Valvajre Ferry from Bandar Abas to Sharjah, now this time we did the reverse. The experience is the same, it’s a lot of paperwork, specially on the Iranian side. Here you find a our experience to import our truck back into Iran at the Bohanar port in Bandar Abas. It’s a lengthy story, as things can be in Iran when things need to be officially done right.
