Postal code for Bavaro is 23301
it accepted punta cana for AV. ESTADOS UNIDOS..

But I changed it to a hotel that is very close...

But it wouldn't accept Bavaro or 23301..only Punta Cana

Calle Italia, Karibo Hotel, PUNTA CANA, La Altagracia, 23000, DO

There search system also has street addresses in Bavaro, but list the city as Santo Domingo...Its clearly going to create delivery problems

If you are in Bavaro did you check with Claro about Fiber Optic? Works like a charm in Punta Cana, Bavaro at a fraction of what you are paying...............And weather means nothing as it is in ground wiring...

The IDIOTS at claro cant even find my street address much less install fiber...
There is 1 person in white sands that has blocked fiber installation for years in white sands.
so all I have is VERY %$#&^%$ DSL from claro.
When I went to move service, claro couldnt do it. SERIOUSLY...they didnt know the address
even though they had an existing account at my condo.
They ended up just putting my name on the old established account,,,and then billed me for a month of fiber on my OLD ACCOUNT and refused to reverse the charge... claro is POS

I am out of country, so now I got to send someone to EPS and tell them to accept package for me. I am guessing though this will be a logisitical nightmare, so in the ned we will go have to pick up at their location in Santo DOmingo

I live in Boca Chica. If you need help, let me know. I don't know where EPS is as I use BM Cargo locally, but I'm sure I could find it. I would probably uber back home and can keep it for you if you want. I'm generally down in CZ and Parque Enriquillo every Tuesday.

Appreciate the offer. My wife will take care of it.

I get 100 MB down, 3 TV's with Hundreds of channels, landline with 500 free minutes to landlines which I don't use, Cell Phone which I NEVER can use all the data and minutes, free roaming in US, Latin America, Spain, and other Countries. And all Claro to Claro calls are not counted as minutes.

My monthly bill 6455 rd. No installation or deposit required....................

Thats great. I get almost 1MB download and not even 0,5 MB download from Claro for $40. not to mention the dsl drops every 15 minutes or so. And my place on the river doesnt even have cell reception

I have paid... Unfortunately it isnt what they promised at $599. My total came out to $712.. Sent a message to support..

The bigger problem you are going to have is shipping. It doesnt accept addresses. I put in the street name where DHL Bavaro is located and wrote DHL on the second address line and it accepted it. Dont know if thats going to work..

Where I live,, the street doesnt even have a name.
Can you tell us exactly how you paid? It seems no one else has been able to do this. Were you in the DR when you paid? Did you use a DR credit card or from a different country? Did you use your RNC or did you "borrow" one?

Did you see my post where I explained in details what RNC I used and which specific credit card ? ScotiaBank Canada Visa and the RNC of Starlink itself.

I keep getting "Something went wrong on our end. Please wait and try again" every time I try to complete the order. A friend of mine is also getting the same.
