    Default Rant about Claro

    I've always said you don't hear from the happy people....I've been in PC for 74 days now and for the most part it's been smooth sailing.

    I use Claro 3g Wifi stick and I purchased 30 days/3g. Well, due to Netflix usage I burned up my 3g's right away and when I went to re-up, I was told I had to wait until the 30 days was up or call the pre-pago service. So I did that, and told them that it was pretty silly for me to have to wait until the 30 days was up since I was willing to pay them more money TODAY to get more service TODAY as I had work to do....TODAY. They told me they would fix it.

    Anyway that was 5 days ago. I have been back to the office twice and they were having technical difficulties and couldn't help me. Finally today I paid for three more days of service but was told once again that I needed to wait until the 30 days was up or call the pre-pago service. Which I did.

    The lady told me that I had to wait until October 24 and I told her that was silly, because I needed to use the service TODAY to do work TODAY and not only that I had paid for three days TODAY. Then she told me that all that was needed was activation of the service. I asked how to activate, since i had already called once to fix things a few days back and I assumed it was ready to go. She told me she could do that for me. I told her go ahead, and then wait until I connected to see if it worked.

    Well, she hung up on me...clearly it worked as I am posting this rant....it's a pain to get internet that works here.

    Anyway rant for the day. My cold isn't helping my mood. Feel free to commiserate, tell me I am doing something wrong, or provide a better solution. Last night I went in to work until 830 to get stuff done. Which is fine...but I like working from home in my pj's.

    I wasn't aware that was an option but I will look into it, thank you.

    Orange is much better for this. You can pay money up front and use it when you want. I don't know if they limit downloads or not. But if they do it will just go to the next 24 hour period. Also it is faster. But you need a good signal.

    200 MB 1 día $ 50
    3 GB 30 días $ 1,325

    now ... 30 days @ 1 day = 6 GB 30 dias $1,500

    I used my Claro stick for months earlier this year - unlimited usage for about $2500RD monthly. Are they no longer offering that?

    I have Viva in this area and so far I'm happy with it (on my 4th month). 3.1mbps speed with unlimited downloads for around RD$1,800 a month. Only detail is that it's a 18 month (I think) contract so if you're not looking for something that permanent, that might be an issue. Signal is quite good, very constant and more than adequate so far for my needs...

    We didn't have a contract either MaineGirl, because we're only there months at a time. Once a month we had to go in and pay
    for the next month. The last payment was only for 3 weeks because we were leaving, if I remember correctly they charged us RD$700 per week. Unlimited access.
