    Default DR communications-HELP!

    Hello Everyone!

    We are moving to the DR in September and we seem to be able to research and get most all information that we have been seeking EXCEPT we hope you have some answers on different communications we are going to need. I can't keep bothering my realtor for everything.

    DSL..... I find Caribe Net on the web but that just reflects dial up.... any suggestions for the best ? I know that DSL is available.

    Local telephone service? Is that Codetel?

    Long distance..... the VERY cheapest way to do this as we talk frequently to Miami!

    Satellite Radio... is it available on the island yet?
    Any tips will be greatly appreciated... thanks

    Codetel/Verizon has DSL service in certain areas. There are telephone/cellular plans that allow you to call anywhere in North America for 3,25 pesos/minute. (6 cents US)
    Don't know about satellite radio.

    Plus we have Tricom for DSL and various cable companies.

    Also, maybe 1,000 posts on this message board relating to this topic.
    I suggest you use the search function to find out all the details, pricing etc.

    Default Satellite radio

    [QUOTE=Miami]Satellite Radio... is it available on the island yet?

    last time I looked (about 6 months ago) XM and the other one were NOT available here due to the positioning of their satellites. Anyone got any more recent info??

    an alternative would be to have a Direct TV or Dishnetwork satellite TV system and use their music channels

    Centennial just raised their rates, it's now 2.25 pesos per minute to the US. Very cheap.
