    Question about internet in st vincent

    Advertisements



    I just ran a search and read a lot about internet in vinnies, all my questions were answered but one. It seems that most people rent a modem, was just wondering if i could just bring my own, coz i have an extra one. I dont know if it matters that it is 110V and 60Hz. I want to know if an American modem will work in vinnies
    thanks in advance

    You could try but it may not work because the local Caribbean Internet standards may use different protocols. The power won't matter because all you'd have to do is plug it into a transformer. You could try and see. It'd be interesting to see which non-local modems do work down there.

    What kind of modem are you talking about? Cable, DSL, or dial-up?

    KaribCable used a pretty standard Motorola "Surfboard" Cable modem, complete with 110V and standard US plug that we had to find a transformer for...
