Modem setup for Unitel 3g Internet in Laos

Also I'd like to know how good the reception and coverage is in and around Vientiane. How far out of the city can you go and still get high speeds?

I got mine and it came with set up instructions in English, Very much a 'plug and play' thing.
Good coverage around VT but I don't know about the outskirts.

The interface is simple to check status; diagnostics shows signal strength which appears very low but more than 10/99 will give access. 13-19 is usual for me and 23 is the highest I've seen around VTE up to 10km or so; also available in provincial towns with varying distance of coverage, depending on population I guess.
If you take a laptop to a Unitel office they can install it for you and explain how the subscription works. One or two of them speak reasonable English at HO on Nongbone Rd. e.g. the LT100 sub costs 100,000 kip for 3GB and needs to be recharged on the 1st day of each month. Remaining data balance including bonus accumulates and carries forward. The service uses standard Unitel phone refill cards of any value, available everywhere.
