    Default Internet Dongle

    I would like to get a Dongle that will provide me with three weeks of good internet connection in the Santo Domingo area. I want a Dongle because I need to be able to move around - and there are not enough wifi spots for me to go to - so I am willing to pay for a internet dongle.
    I want to do a pre-pay - and have enough usage available for those three weeks for some websites, emails and daily skype calls. Is that possible?
    Any advice or recommendations are appreciated.
    Do you recommend Orange or Claro?
    How much should I expect to pay?

    I assume you mean internet stick. I have an Orange stick, I believe it was about 1000 pesos and it costs 100 pesos per day, unlimited usage ( plus taxes) Only used it in PP but I was very happy with it 1.5 up 1.5 down

    This plan will get you started and you can add more GB as needed.

    That totals $2880.00 RD after taxes.

    ITBIS is $360.00, CDT is $45.00 and ISC is $225.00

    I need to get the same thing when I come this winter since I am trying a different condo and don't have internet included. I used the online Claro store to make sure I get what I want and no more or less. I just hope the signal is good where I'm going to be, when I'm going to be there! Always a gamble...

    i use a claro stick (Plan, not prepaid) for the road since years, never had a coverage problem, not in the whole punta cana area nor higuey nor boca chica nor in santo domingo. comes in pretty handy without the need to depend on searching for wifi spots in areas you are not familiar with.

    Thanks Mike!

    I'll be all over the East Coast again this year I'm sure. We are continuing our search for property to build on so it'll be really great to access the internet no matter where we are.
