Red Sea Internet Access
I'm on my way at the end of this month to Turkey to join a 40-footer sailing to Egypt, Sudan, Eritrea, Yemen and Oman. Our boat will be joining the Vasco de Gama rally at Port Said in November 2009.
If possible I'd rather be able to access the internet using my own laptop and I'd appreciate it if anyone can offer their own advice/suggestions/comments about getting internet access through these areas ... both using your own laptop and anything else you might consider helpful?
Apparently there are WiFi hotspot areas available in Turkey, Egypt and probably Oman into which I might be able to access and log-onto e.g. at hotels, airports and so forth. Is that right? We'll be visiting Antalya and Fineke in Turkey and Port Said in Egypt.
And it seems Sudan, Eritrea and Yemen only have dial up access? Anyone with any information on these areas please?
I do have some experience getting online using internet cafes, and of course I can always resort to that if I have to, but I really, really would prefer to use my own laptop, even if I have to plug it into a wall somewhere , if I can only find some place that would allow me to do it (for a price of course).
Cheers for now,
