Submission Deploying to Afghanistan 1

LiNKz writes: "Within a short while I will be heading to Afghanistan and in the interests of keeping in communication with my wife and family I've been looking at different means of it, from VoIP to Cellular services. I'm not sure how well connected or how stable of a connection the base I'm deploying to is which means VoIP might simply not be an option. I have however noticed in my searches that Afghanistan has recently boomed with cellular coverage though that too seems to be difficult to ascertain.

I'm curious if the Slashdot community has any information or experience regarding international cellular services offered in this country and the means of obtaining it."
