    Default High Speed Internet Availability

    So y'all got it there? Or must you rely on archaic dial up? What are the costs? (both dial up and if there is high speed). What's the availability throughout the country??

    Thanks!!

    Choice of dial up or DSL in many areas. I have DSL in Sosua. You must be within a certain distance of the transmitting point to get DSL, so some of the housing areas between Sosua and Cabarete don't have it.

    I've got a steam powered modem while my next door neighbors has DSL, with the same company, at 10 times my speed. Life's a bitch, or shoud I say Verizon's a bitch. Cable length is definitely important when it comes to DSL.

    Availability varies throughout the country. For us to tell you if there is availability, you need to tell us your plans

    Default If you can read Spanish

    Verizon has lots of information about their internet service plans at:

    www.verizon.net.do

    From this page use the link "Internet Flash Residencial". You can even type in your phone number and learn whether their DSL "Flash" service is available at your address.

    Donít get to excited with Verizonís ďKey in your phone number to see if you are eligible for DSL gimmickď. When I key in mine, it tells me Iím eligible but when the technician tests the line they tell me Iím not. Donít forget this is the DR.

    verizon and centennial offer internet 3g, I think centennial is better now cause it works in more areas.

    I use centennial and works fine, a PCMCIA card in my laptop with a small antenna, about 12 ks/s, flat rate , $2000 month

    regards

    Excellent point. I hadn't realized that was the case. Thanks.

    There are about 7 internet cafes in Sosua and maybe 5 in Caberete. They are fast!
