writes "Web and cell phone recommendations for international travelers?
I support employees and customers who infrequently travel outside of the United States for both work and pleasure for one to three weeks at a time.
The destinations can be almost any country in the world.
Invariably, they need my staff to find them (a) rental of a "mi-fi" like device so they can get web access for their laptops, iPads, Android, and iPod Touch devices (without onerous surcharges), and (b ) find them short-term cell phone rentals where the per-minute rates won't empty their wallets.
In the last year alone, countries involved included Nicaragua, China, Chile, Finland, and Russia. A trip to India is pending.
I feel like every time someone plans a trip, we need to start over looking for rental vendors.
Is there a web site that keeps travelers up to date on web and cell phone options for short-term trips?
Sites like TripAdvisor.com do a great job of keeping travelers up to date on hotel cleanliness and transportation, but I have yet to find a site to help with voice and data communications for travelers.
(If you don't know of such a site, how about just advice for India?)
writes "U.S. appeals court on Tuesday struck down rules that restrict Comcast Corp. from dictating how customers can use its Internet network.
In a 3-0 vote, the U.S. Appeals Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the Federal Communications Commission lacked the statutory authority to set and enforce such rules.
The decision could reignite a simmering debate in Congress over whether new laws are needed to guarantee "Net Neutrality" — the right of Internet customers to use the Web for almost any purpose they want.
The lawsuit stems from several incidents in 2007 in which Comcast blocked some subscribers from sharing large video and audio files over the Internet in what are known as peer-to-peer transactions.
