Seeking Connectivity in IRAQ

Check out Wataniya and Zain, the two are the regional wireless
providers and in my experience, at least in Kuwait, they offer aircard
service. The catch is that you have to have a local ID card (this was
the rule in Kuwait, not sure of Iraq). You can get around this by
buying the service from a shop who may agree to buy the card in his
own name and resell to you.

Best regards, Jeff
