    NEW TO THE MILITARY COMMUNITY!

    Advertisements
    Hi! I'm fairly new to the "military community" but not so new to the distance and restricted communication seeming as though I've experienced it with my Airman while he was in basic training and tech school.

    Flash forward to now, my Airforce boyfriend has just arrived in Italy a couple days ago and I have no real way of contacting him unless he sparingly finds a wifi spot and then we are able to text or talk for a little via Viber then I won't hear from him until the next day, if that.

    When will they be able to access their own internet or phone service while overseas?

    Any advice, or kind words are greatly appreciated!

    From what I've seen in other posts, it can take about a week or two. But I can't say for certain

    This depends on a lot of factors. I assume from the sounds of this that he'll be living on base in the barracks? For now, you can suggest he head to the USO and maybe hte base library for free internet. For cell phone, it just depends on when he's able to get out and buy a phone plan.
