Alor area - Internet available?Sore,
I would like to travel around the Alor region for a couple of weeks. But I need to be sure, that I can find an Internet access there for study reasons...
Does anyone knows how hard it is to find Internet in this area?
Last time as I visited Flores I was surprised how difficult it is to find Internet outside Maumere or Bajawar...
Thanks for advice

1Internet past Flores is fairly difficult to access, unless you use a smartphone or tablet with 3G and a good connection to a provider like Telkomsel Simpati. But even then it's very spotty. I was surprised last year that the 3G in Lembata is actually not bad when it's actually working. Perhaps it's because not as many people are sucking up signals as they are in places further West.
It also depends on your acccomodation. But I've only stayed in 2 places in Alor area and neither had any intenet available. There is also a small mobile device that is supposed to pick up 3G and convert it to Wifi but it didn't work at all when my friend tried it.

4Unfortunately because of Ramadan the prices for flight tickets are ridiculous within my time-frame and my destinations. So I need to check out Alor another time, even if I would love to do it now... But whether now or later, it i still important for me to know about the situation regarding to Internet. So thank you very much for the informations.
Because i have to flight to Medan in August anyway I will just do it earlier as expected. So if you guys have also advices for awesome of the beaten track experiences over there, I will listen carefully.
@ Johnney, the time I like the Gilis are gone. It is jut sometime difficult to combine the places I like to visit with the stuff I need to do. Gilis are pretty easy for the second part. But in my subjective opinion, they do not really reflect Indonesia... By the way, thank you for the stuff you wrote about Papua. I combined it with the information provided by Lazzlo and both helped me a lot. cheers
