1.Are there any internet service providers that access the internet throughout the Caribbean from land based phone lines? Alternatively,are there many internet cafes throughout the islands?
2.Is there a cell phone option that you can use throughout the islands - at a reasonable cost?
thanks

Dear Holodon:
No problem finding internet
terminals, but as far as cellular
service, regardless of whether its
sattlelite (iridium or GLobestar) or landbased (batelco or Wireless and Cable)_
you are going to find yourself with
much higher per minute costs than
in the states, like $1.50 plus per
minute. The cheapest thing you can
do is get phone cards, like Walmart
cards for use in PR and USVI, otherwise
and elsewhere you just have to be prepared
to pay high rates.
Sincerely,
John
