At this point my plan is to test out the connection in my hotel http://holidayparksamui.com/, and if that is no good I will attempt to buy a monthly membership to one of the reliable cafes (eg offer them 1500 baht or so for allowing me unlimited usage of their connection.
An unreliable connection isn't great for cash games either, as it can result in the client not posting your blinds in time. But you are right in that a loss of connection during a multitabling sitngo session can be disastrous.
I would forget about Koh Pan Gan, the infrastructure there isn't nearly as good as Samui.
PM me for my email address, I'd be happy to share any info or experiences.
Hey thx for the reply,
wow 5 times, u must hate the place..lol
that hotel seem pretty nice, and good price too..
u get any discount for staying a month?
i was thinking bout renting a place with a buddy, and get the best connection available, plus some kind of back up connection.. would this be a good option? are there any good providers.
huge diffrence between sng and cash imo
dont think im gonna enjoy the grind in a internetcafe..
staying in a hotel with good internet, for a decent price would be the nuts.
might look around for something like that.
u got msn or something??, would be nice to get some inside info from experienced koh samoi traveller..
