I use it in middle of nowhere Brazil with no problems so I would have thought that there would be no issues in Thailand, quality may sometimes be a bit bad.

The last time I was in Brazil they only had limited electric in "the middle" and telephones were counted on one hand in some areas, mind you it was over 30 years ago....

 

So there's hope for Pattaya, mind you getting our telephone and "broadband" installed is proving problematic, so now giving serious to taking a basket of homing pigeons...

Works pretty good. I used it just last week, from the hotel on soi 8. In my business i need to stay connected most of the time. It is nice to be able to use it while anywhere, or almost anywhere. I dont think it works in Saudia Arabia.

 

Also, if you dont want to bring your laptop, you can get one of the new U-3 Enabled 1gb, 2gb, or 4gb memory sticks from SanDisk, and it has Skype loaded on it. You just plug into any usb port on an internet cafe desk top, and get yourself a head set, and you are good to go....

Not a lot has changed, the familty don`t have phones out here and to get tv they have a satellite dish. We erected a tower for internet to run our business from a farm house down a dirt track! If it works here, I'm sure that it will be ok in a metropolitan city like Pattaya :rolleyes:

I have been using it for a year here and found it to be good, sound is bad about 5% of the time and gives an echo but apart from that it's great!!

i am pretty new to skype, but am going to give it a shot here in Pattaya to compare against the quality of my Vonage 'softphone' as my current hotel only has wifi...

 

so, assuming one had access to the actual DSL router that my wifi is on, can anyone tell me what ports (if any) i might want to route inbound to my computer, and put into the QoS table? any info or tips would be most welcome friends..!

What it's like in Thailand I don't know, but I use it in the UK to call TGF every day and, frankly, it fucking stinks.

 

I'm not sure whether it's the Skype or her phone, to be honest - she's on Orange over there and it was shit. Went to Koh Lan and couldn't get a signal, whereas I was on DTAC and worked perfectly.

 

I try not to say too much about it, otherwise I'll be hit for a new phone.

 

On the plus side, it beats paying £1 a minute.

Skype uses

Port 80

Port 443 as TCP trigger

and a random port as UDP. So in reality you shouldn't need to forward any

If at first you don't succeed; call it version 1.0

thx to you for your reply friend, since you do not voice any concern about port 443 i am assuming that MaxNet has been playing dirty w/ 443/HTTPS like they have been lately down in Phuket... for weeks my "premium" MaxNet account in Patong gave me all kinds of grief on 443... hell, port 22 too for f*cks sake. as a recent transplant i am crossing my fingers for anything better than what we've suffered through w/ MaxNet down there... nothing could be as bad, aside from... well, er... nothing..

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
