Depending of the location of your house, 3G from Orange or Claro may work best for you. If the signal is low - an external antenna is your friend.

Sosua Orange shop offers short and long term rentals for 3G internet, without a contract. If interested - PM me for more info.

I use a small dish... mounted high to pick up the 3G signal but la Entrada may not have 3G passing by or a nearby tower.

I had a Claro man come and 'search' for a signal to determine which way to point the parabola.

Nothing in your/my area is very good..... erratic/sporadic at best
try the dongle thing..... I used it before the parabola

16-18dBi Yagis can deliver the signal from as far as 15 kms. Done this in many places. Rancho Lobo Gris for instance now has 3G from both - Claro and Orange with those antennas. Non-line of sight, surrounded by mountains.
