    Need blood? A colmado near the Red Cross may have what you are looking for

    I hate to donate blood. They always ask too many questions - "whose blood is this? where did you get it? why it is in a bucket?"

    Need help with WIFI network connection to De Lancer

    Tips for finding a place with good Internet service?

    Cabarete has no fiber-optic from Claro. Only ADSL, which is not very reliable. You may be better off with Cable del Norte fiber optic. They are a lot more expensive than Claro, require no contracts, can get you connected same day.

    Best internet connection in Sosua

    Don't use boosters/repeaters. They will add latency and noise. If you need stronger signal - get your own router and hook it up to the original modem. If you can - connect your laptop with an ethernet cable, not via wifi.
