Internet Connection in Papua New Guinea

One of the hardest things to do when you are called to minister in the "bush" by God is keep in touch with others. Our recent phone line is at best "horrible". You get no cellular service there, I could get a Satellite phone at a great expense and you have Internet but it comes across at 16.6kbps (that is kilobytes) not megabytes.

While in Port Moresby waiting for the birth of our newest addition, I have been to a Internet cafe and got to use "broadband" how nice to be able to send pictures.

One downside to 16.6kbps is that you can only receive text, no pictures. So when some of you send us pictures I cannot download them as it takes us about 30minutes to get a picture.

Maybe one day Wipim will have broadband access? I can pray anyways!
