    Caribserve/ Telem Internet Questions

    Advertisements



    I am accepted for the May 2011 class and will be living off campus (Mahogany Residence) and was wondering what would be the best option for internet. Can anyone tell me the call quality for skype with Caribserve vs Telem (and which package you signed up for/monthly fees).

    Also, is anyone selling their router?

    You can get Telem at Mahogany? Wow. Telem is hard wired internet, so it should be the best. Caribserve is what most people have. The only complaints I seem to hear about Skype is calls to other people on the island. Calls to the US are relatively OK, even with other providers.

    I dunno about Mahogany, but if its like the other solutions run housing, it'll be impossible for you to get Telem, just as a warning. But I don't live in Mahogany, so I'm not 100% sure. If you can get Telem, then do it, by far superior service.

    Depressingly slow compared to what you would get for the same price in the states, but usable. Most people have connections comparable to a 1 meg line in the US that they pay $60+ for.

    ...and that's only if you can get Telem service, which you probably won't be able to do. Otherwise,
