    Default Cable internet vs Mobile internet

    From reading past post, the internet speed from mobile carriers and cable carriers are almost the same.

    So is there anyone who uses their mobile carrier as the sole choice for connecting to the internet? If you do, do you use one of the wifi devices that allow you to connect 5 devices wireless and have you found your speed slowed down after downloading a large amount of data.

    For those that use a cable for your internet connection, are there limits when downloading?

    Trying to find pros vs cons. Being mobile and having one bill is a pro, but if it's not unlimited or constraint, that's a negative.

    I still have not heard good things from people with Cable modems. I use Claro DSL and it is OK. Not superfast but still costly for what it is.

    Links below to the two main providers of wireless plans which are Claro and Orange

    Orange - internet móvil Orange

    Claro - República Dominicana

    I use Wind Telecom's 4G service, I think they are the only wireless carrier that sells speed plans rather than transfer plans - meaning there is no 5 or 10 GB etc transfer limit after which the speed is throttled down.

    What is the cost for that service, I am assuming it is 4g and requires a 4g cellular modem. Is this service available in Santiago?

    After viewing WIND's website I like the speeds they provide and it seems like there isn't a limit. Is this true with what you have found VJS? What area do you live, because I see from their map the location plays a part in the coverage.

    Also you have to have good Orange cell signal where you live but its plug and play and the fastest way to get online.
