Last year I bought a Claro USB 'stick' for internet access. In Santo Domingo it worked fine, even used my MagicJack most of the time. At our house at a beach west of SD, forget it. Couldn't access Comcast e-mail, it constantly disconnected, trying MagicJack was comical.
Went back to Claro to reactivate my stick. They told me it was 'obsolete' and sold me a new one. Wow, what a difference at our house. They must have added service. 3G connection almost all the time, especially if I'm out on the terrazzo. Inside the house, usually 2 bars, outside I get 4. MagicJack calls sound like the person is in the next room. Pages loading quickly.
AlterEgo is a happy camper.
Now if they could just do something about these ridiculously long blackouts.

I got the Claro usb stick about three weeks ago and so far it works just great. I opted for the 5GB/60 day prepaid plan. Do you know whether or not you can recharge your account online or do you have to go to a Claro store?
Now you can download your books, more sent

What brand / model was your "obsolete" stick? I have one (Huawei) which I bought like 2 years ago...
Thats the one I had. I went to the 18 month plan w/ unlimited everything.
I have an antenna and a WiFi modem..
Works great as long as CLARO provides enuff bndwidth - or whatever
I can't help you with what the older version was but the one I purchased the beginning of this month is a USB Huawei E153.

That's the same plan we got. Last year I had "unlimited" access, but of course, I rarely had good access, so it's all relative. We did everything right in La Sirena [San Cristobal] at the Claro kiosk.
