    Default Claro "Stick"

    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?

    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.

    If I may, what is the price for an 18 month unlimited everything plan?

    If I recall, something like 1800DRP a monthbut you can juggle/jiggle the numbersby wrapping in your TV, house phone, cell.
    Like all other carriers, CLARO is into 'bundling'

    There is a promotion going on now if you go to the CLARO store

    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.

    So, does anyone know how long 5GB should last? I don't have a clue.
