I just purchased a house in St Thomas and want to sign up for high speed Internet. Does anyone know who provides this service besides Innovative. I am hoping to sign up with Vonage so I won't be using the Innovative telephone service and need names of other providers....non-dial up providers.
We have rental time available at our Ritz Carlton condo. Our scheduled time is April but I can check other available dates. Go to Ritz Carlton website for pictures. It's a lovely three bedroom condo...prices vary according to dates being used.
joonbug, I use the Sprint Mobile Broadband, and am absolutely thrilled! If you have a Sprint phone, and can get signals at your home, then their high-speed connection will work in your home. If not, you might want to consider Cingular's similar service. Sprint has a 30-day guarantee, so you can get a refund if it doesn't work where you are. Also, the pc card is free with rebate - USB modem is not.
What I like about these services are, you can take your high-speed connection anywhere, so you're not confined to just your home. Also, I got the USB modem (I have Windows Vista), so I can use it on my desktop or laptop if I want. Cingular's service is only for laptops using a PC card.
All of the services are dependent upon where you live, so you should ask your neighbors what works for them. Choice has a service that works using your electrical outlet, but it's only available in certain areas. .
BTW, I don't work for Sprint. I was so frustrated with dial-up here, and hadn't heard many good stories about high-speed services, so with Sprint's offer, I didn't have anything to lose, plus I wouldn't have to wait for them to installl whatever. Just plug it in, and you're on. You can also set up a network, but you have to order their router.
Ask for Monica at the Sprint store at Lockhart - she set me up.
You can also try Choice. Depends also on line of sight, but if you have a newer tower near you, you don't necessarily need line of sight. All depends on location. Choice has high speed and you pay for the speed you want.
