Don't know how to do a speed test, but my Claro fiber optic internet connection here in Puerto Plata seems faster than usual this week end past.
This should help.........Don't know how to do a speed test, but my Claro fiber optic internet connection here in Puerto Plata seems faster than usual this week end past.
Talking to Claro internet customer service is like talking to a box of Legos & Tinkertoys. If it weren't for inside info, we'd be going ballistic.
here in Sosua, at least for me no problems I pay for 3 Mbps / 768 Kbps
i get 3.2 Mbps / 1.05 Mbps
Claro banda ancha signal extremely weak in Costambar.
Can't load a page without timing out.
Had to hang the stick out the window with a long USB extension cord, and it works, but S L O W . . .
Cell phones all have crackles and drops. 220-1111 can't stay up long enough to take a complaint.
Has an EMP done us in, or are they just picking on me?
I think pelaut was referring to 3G internet, not Claro DSL line.
Pelaut, if banda ancha is your only source of internet in Costambar then go and swap 3G USB stick for 3G wireless router. It has SMA-type external antenna connector. Have very positive experience with external antennas for those 3G boxes (Claro and Orange FlyBox) in places where without antennas there were no signal at all.
Yup. Did that. Claro took 2 days in the house and finally annulled the contract saying: "the lines are not conditioned for it".
Nothing about needed amplifiers, bigger wire, you name it, just the above.
They took all the equipment back but left the house wired for a 3g wireless wifi router and a wire coming onto the property that's "not conditioned for it".
