What is the fastest, cheapest, most reliable internet available? What company? How much per month? How much for a non-resident deposit?

Fast AND cheap is not an option here! You either get one or the other. We use Coral Cable and for $199 BZ a month we get 512 speed. It's not bad. Okay for everything except You Tube and loading videos. For much, much, more money--like around $500 BZ a month, you can get a much faster speed from BTL. I'm just not willing to spend that much on Internet.

Direct from the phone company DSL.
I'm in business and need the speed, You can get an all Inclusive business package for about 650 bz a month includes....1 MBps (1 megabyte/sec)I think thats how its expressed??
however.. it allows me to click, click, click and not have time to go for coffee while i'm waiting for it to come up.

The *average* internet speed in poverty-stricken Haiti, for god's sake, is 1.5 Mbps. BTL and PM Barrow should be ashamed.

They should have done something by now, yes.
Wasn't that the point of nationalizing it?

So, does anyone run an internet business? And if so, how? We currently live in Costa Rica and get 2M internet for $50 and that includes the phone. We need at least 2M, so how do we get it? What is this Smart company?

You pay another 100bz on top of the 650 and you get another 1Mbps.
We're definitely getting raped on the price of phone and internet.
The cable company runs a internet service but its slow and inconsistent.
