    Default 4G is coming (wind telecom)

    I was talking to wind telecom folks this afternoon and it seems like they are almost set to launch 4G network in santiago and santo domingo. No prices, speed or combo packages have been publicized yet but they are ready to launch the service in 2 weeks.
    Please do not refer me to the samsung and wind telecom webpage news article. I know all about that. I want to know if anyone knows the inside knowledge on pricing and speed of the internet. I know they will not offer HDTV yet but they are working on it.

    Is Wimax, so yes is only data, although you can route VOIP through there.

    Planes Locales

    US$4.32 inc. taxes for inbound DID from DR from a reliable provider... nobody can beat that price
    I don;t think they do SIP URI so you will need to "register" your SIP device to receive calls. I am working on a big personal project to link Asterisk, free SIP calling provider who includes DR, Wind Telecom DID inbound, and GSM to VOIP gateway linked with my Orange fleet number to create "free everywhere to anywhere" system for me to receive and send free outbound calls from home/office/cellular.

    the "DID" is great as you can program your ipod touch to receive local calls when connected via wifi or take the programmed ata box to usa and receive free inbound local DR calls to your ata unit.

    Ok now that the service is here is Santiago, any real-world experience to share (as to speed, reliability on connection, movility, etc). They "unlimited" speed for their high-end offer, but they don't say what that means (there is always a limit).

    Hey Bachata, it matters if you want to watch Netflix or Hulu through your computer or cellphone without the video stuttering any place in the city.
