Internet data on Pamir highway

Postby graceecg » Wed Sep 21, 2016 10:25 am

Am I crazy? I always like to have internet data when travelling in case something goes wrong. I've read there are 4 phone companies that service Tajikistan. Tcell being the most prominent in Dushanbe. Has anyone experienced which company is best for internet data on the Pamir highway? Or which companies definitely don't get service there? Thank you

The other question may well be - will you have access to power?

True that. I've been on the road for a while so have decent battery packs. But the former question still remains. It must be a mystery...

Apologies to the OP, I was offline (!) so could not administrate the rant that followed. I cleaned it up now, if anyone is interested, the rant topic is here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2210

So, this is still interesting, which company provides the best internet on the Pamir Highway? Locals say: get 4 sim cards. I had Megafon last month, good deal (I believe we paid around 10 euro), used internet for 3 weeks as much as we wanted and had connection at decent speed everywhere. We did not go into Pamir though.

Hope that is of use.

Just used Megafon: has reception in Murgab and Alichur. Internet is very slow and not allways on. Power is a problem. According to locals megafon has the widest coverage in the pamir.

Yes, especially in eastern Pamirs Megafon is the best. You have an antenna even at Karakul, Rangkul and Shaymak.

Hi All
I am doing a motorcycle tour out of Kashgar in a coupl eof weeks, travelling the Pamir highway through Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and back to Kashgar.
Is there mobile data available in these areas, if so who is the best supplier

You could probably ask your tour operator/guide, as they should have a good idea.
