I cannot go to any google.com search page either by typing it into my address bar, or using the small plugin I have with FireFox.
I can reach Google Adwords, but not Google Adsense.
I can reach Google webmaster tools.
WTF Thailand? You know, one of the things that seriously pisses off the entire country (or maybe just me), is that internet here is ridiculously lame in comparison even with other 3rd world countries. It’s outrageously FAIL every few days.
Right now I’m watching my TOT ADSL modem flash as it has been for the last 36 hours – because, apparently the wind is blowing somewhere. Yeah, no joke – when the wind blows or when it rains hard – ADSL across the entire country goes out.
This is why wireless 3G, 4G or some fucking G is so important to those of us sweating it out trying to stay connected in this god forsaken technology backward country.
I’m using EDGE – mobile phone connection over AIS – the most consistent internet that exists in the whole damn country. It’s slow like 1998 dial up connections over a phone line in America – but, that’s what this country offers… solid EDGE performance.
Welcome to Thailand – don’t forget to purchase your AIS SIM card for your phone as you arrive in the country – it’s the most solid internet the entire country offers to visitors and countrymen. Get to love it… mai pen rai…
