To ''Holdon'' (wouldn''t your first name be a little more appropriate when asking for help from others?)

There are indeed ISPs in some of the islands. But in a multi-national environment, I wouldn''t assume that subscribing with one would ease your access needs when elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Internet Cafes are everywhere, or at least multiple places at each town/city in each island we''ve been in. Islanders quickly found out that an inexpensive computer and phone line = regular income from yachties, tourists & others. Pretty simple equation, actually. <g> But connection speed and capabilities beyond the basics (e.g. printing) may be limited.

No one seems to suffer much with comm problems in the E. Caribbean (or in the D.R., Turks & Caicos or U.S. territories for that matter).

Oops, forgot to reply to the cell phone question... I''ve yet to hear of a satisfied customer who got ready cell service up/down the islands. Their infrastructure (at least on some of the islands) just isn''t there, yet. OTOH phone cards are the comm currency of choice and phones are everywhere. You''d probably spend far less relying on phone cards, anyway.
