Internet Access in St. Croix
I second the Sprint card option. It's the best deal available in the USVI for Laptop users. Card works on St Thomas too but the signal isn't as strong in St Criox. I haven't tested it out on St John yet.
Cingular also has a card that works pretty well on STX. We even use it when we are out on the boat at Buck Island and it gives you the ability to be online when traveling without paying the daily rate at hotels, internet cafes, etc.
Does Verizon broadband work well on STX?
I saw this post and wanted to inquire. I have been on island (STX) since October and currently working in insurance billing but would love to get back in to transcription work. I have worked for 3 orthopedic surgeons and 4 physical therapists in the states doing transcription over the past 20 years. Any leads on who you were with here or if the company you are currently with is looking for any help. Thanks for any info.
Flounder, wish I could help you - but I can't - I stayed with the same stateside doctors I have been with for 14 years....I thought they would get the hint when I moved to STX but they didn't - now I'm back and no one but me ever broke stride.
I don't know what the docs on STX do for transcription, or the therapists....maybe someone else can direct you on that.
Transcription is starting to be a dying art with the voice recognition systems and electric medical records - you might learn to just love billing and coding - although STX probably won't catch up to the cutting edge technology the States are seeing now for quite a while...
As far as the Cingular and Sprint cards for your laptop, do they have same service range as the cell phones. For instance, at my house on the east end, I can't get a cingular cell phone signal or a sprint cell phone signal. Does this mean I can't use the cards?
Probably you won't be able to get any data service. You must live in the bottom of a valley. My Cingular signal level is excellent on the east end of STX.
Hey Becky, I was wondering if you could tell me the company you transcribe for? I am currently a medical coder but I am looking to moving to STT and was hoping to get work from home. Thanks
Can I get service at Full Moon Beach Bar on Cane Bay?
I am looking for a provider....Please email me.
Hi and greetings;
I wish to offer my two cents....have any of you tried the new USB port Sprints DSL wireless system????
I purchased their new USB port micro unit, $149.95 less 50 buck rebate, got the unlimited service @ 59/m, I am now wireless everywhere I go on the island.
Where-ever there is Sprint cell coverage there is DSL for my computer, no roaming charges.
DSL speeds, no connection problems and it works in Puerto Rico, all over the USA and also STT!!!
I have used it in every airport between here and Chicago...no one problem.
Who could ask for more.
You do not have to deal with locals who think they know everything...or even have to waite for them to return the 15 minute call, I like dealing with a big fortune 500 organization...they have customer service.
The internet fee is added to my cell bill and all is well.
Have been using it for 9 months with absolutely no problems.
The Sprint store in Sunny Isles has them in stock, but I purchased mine back in the states.
It plugs into my USB port or mounts in its own little holder on a 3 ft cable.
Connection start-up is about 10 seconds.
My two cents!
Wendy, I have PM'd you.
My two cents!
You are 110% correct about Sprint's USB device. I'm able to watch almost commercial free TV programs and live news with it as well. The only thing negative was they hit us all with a unannouced 15% "Sprint surcharge" as of this month. I argued with them, to no avail, but it still is a good deal for me.
what is the monthly cost?
