    TV's and DSL hookup

    Advertisements



    In reading the new student manual, they say that tv's are very expensive. Is this true? Do most apartments come equiped with tv's already? What cable stations are available? My wife is coming down with me so I just want to make sure that she is going to have something to do. Is DSL or cable modem available out there? If so, how much is it per month? How much are cell phones per month?

    tv

    tv's are expensive, but you can get apartments that have them and cable included, but these apts will be expensive..probably around 700 or so a month. I got a cheaper place, just as nice, without tv and cable for 400 a month + utilities. Got used 20 inch tv for 300..sounds like a lot but you will realize that what you buy is just an investment b/c you will sell it to somebody for about the same when you leave..they have this big sale towards the end of every semester where the students leaving get together and sell all their stuff..great place to buy books and other stuff real cheap, but you will not be here for that when you first arrive. there will be postings around school though of people selling everything, pluse there is a student spouse run consignment shop that sells stuff. Cable is 50ec per month..about 20us..get everything! hbo, pay per view..everything. cell phones have no monthly fee..pay per call by phone card...cheap though..i also have dsl..big initial investment unless you bring down a modem from the states (hint)..then 100ec/month..around 40 bucks...regarding electronics and food and anything else you can think of...fill up your bags! not much shopping here..electronic prices out of this world...eat well also b4 you come..you will see why!

    Thanks for the quick reply. What kind of modem hookup do you need or should I bring down for a laptop in order to get the DSL connection? De donde eres? Con el nombre Pable se que eres latino.

    re:

    as for the laptop, if you're going to be carrying it around with you, buy something that is very light and mobile. I have more of a desktop replacement laptop and it is very cumbersome(right word?) to carry around at times. Especially with all my books and notes.

    As for the TV, some places have it, some don't. I think someone bought a 14" LG one for like 250 EC. Not positive though. Best chance is shopping at Courts or the Muslim store.

    Cable connection will run like 70-80 EC a month I think. Not positive what channels since I dont have a TV or cable service. Im home about 6-7 hours a day to sleep and shower.

    modem

    I heard you can't bring a modem from the States because it won't work with their system down here.
