      SIM CARD FOR DONGLE

      Belgium Mar 23, 2014 at 4:55 PM

      Hi all,

      I will be traveling on a barge for 1 weeks in Belgium, and will need a sim card for my dongle.

      The dongle supports the 850 and 2100 mhz bands.

      I only want it for internet, not phone.

      Any recomendations on a provider to go with for this, and what the price rang will be?

      I will have a Netherlands sim card with me, would that work in Belgium?

      Many thanks in advance

      Thanks in advance!

Is this correct and the best way to go about it or are there other options? From Bastogne I am going to Lille, France. Any suggestions? I would happily take accommodation recommendations as well.

      Hi all,
      I'm travelling to Gent by Eurostar from london in a couple of weeks and have 2 questions regarding my journey:

      1) I understand I have to change trains at Brussels (I think) - is it then obvious which platform to go to for the Gent Train?

      2) I am staying at a hotel on Waaistraat. I see it is quite a long walk from the station so was thinking of getting a taxi (there are 4 of us) however, someone has suggested we could take the tram - is this much cheaper, and how will i know which one to get?

      Any tips would be much appreciated - thanks! :)
