    Question Anyone Has Connections in Finland?
    I am planning a new trip over there, and am now trying to find out a way to connect to the Internet within Finland not through a Russian mobile Internet provider (my money is leaking out of my mobile account at the speed of light when I do so)...

    Does anybody have any friends, partners, or other connections in Finland that can advise on the best (fast Internet + better cost-quality correlation) way to connect to the Internet through a cell phone while on the territory of Finland?

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Geno,

    I must say that you travel more than anyone that I have ever known. I'm jealous. Sorry I don't have any Finland advice. I just came to check out the thread thinking, Geez is Geno getting to go somewhere else now?

    I've researched all of these options already (DNA, Elisa, Sonera), but only DNA is available for non-residents of Finland and only the prepaid option (which, unfortunately, includes no data transfer capacity).

    That's okay. I've already made up my mind to make it a full-blown vacation, letting Nick handle everything while I'm gone... It's been a while since I've had any rest (when we were Monaco, Venice, and Rhodes, the girls were having all the fun, and I was working my butt off in front of my laptop)...

    Thank you for trying to help, Donna. I highly appreciate it.

    OK, have a wonderful real vacation. Finland is very internet friendly, so I'd think there would probably be wireless internet available wherever you stay. It seems to be the norm at US hotels now, and Finland wants to stay at the cutting edge.

    Yeah... I'll be in a quite remote region. Lakes, rocks, fishing, you know...

    I will do my best to enjoy every bit of it, and bring back pictures too.

    Thanks again, Donna.

    DNA is only available to tourists with money?


    Do you know how that sound, if is taken out of content?
