I am an Internet Engineer looking to relocate back in blue water. After looking for about a year, we've narrowed it down to AC or the North Shore of the DR. My personal favorite is AC, but my wife is concerned about education there (we have a 3 year-old), therefore we are going for a week in September to visit one or the other. I'm attempting to ramp up my case for AC over the DR, and important part of our decision is the Internet connection available, as that is our income. Are there reliable, high-bandwidth connections on-island? Any other unsolicited tips are appreciated.

Sorry for the length of the explanation, but after lurking on here for so long, I thought I had better introduce myself. smile

The island does have DSL, and several ex-pats live here and work through internet. The schools here for young children are great. You may consider high school in the States. The Chamber of Commerce is happy to help. Just email: dolphin@btl.net

High speed connections are available but you would be mostly on your own to get the proper equipment similar to the Internet cafes.

You did mention "reliable". In that case a large and as nice a power generator as you can afford might be as important as the school system.
