Me, my father and a partner of ours are currently living in the Puerto Plata area and have a very important issue that needs resolving if possible. The basic internet available here is beyond terrible, its just unlike anything I have experienced yet. Now this wouldnt be a huge issue except for the fact that we NEED normal, reliable internet in order to survive as its how we make our money. The only reason we made this move was because we work off the internet and can theoretically make money from anywhere as long as there is internet, but if the internet can barely open a single web page half the time then we are basically dead in the water as the constant internet problems wastes our time that we should we working and making money. I am calling on all expats who live in the Dominican and utilize the internet for a living to please give the best advice you can for the best internet possible, This may be a 3rd world county but there is no way in hell this is the best internet available. I know that eligibly, Claro and Orange are the only internet providers on the island, but i just know that cannot be the case. We are willing to pay any amount to have reliable and consistent internet speeds as it is the most critical thing for our success and our survival here in this country, and as everybody knows, if you have the money then it can be done. Please let me know what your thoughts and suggestions are.
