Any suggestions on which Internet provider has the best WIFI? I have been researching Choice, BroadBand and Innovative. Has anyone used the Greenpacket by Choice?

It may depend on the area you live as to what internet service you may be able to obtain.
This may also depend if you live in a condo associaation as well as to which service provider you may have.
Choice sucks, never used Innovative but have had BBVI and really like it, thousands of times over Choice.

Stay away from BBVI if you want to post any negative experiences. Their customer service bites.

I have found just the opposite is true with BBVI. Their customer service and response time has been excellent.
Customer service, billing issues and all the internet connectivity issues I had with Choice which forced me to switch, are a thing of the past and the speed is excellent.

Thanks for the recommendations. I will be on the east end. Does BBVI have good coverage on that side?

I have had nothing but excellent service from BBVI. I would not even consider any of the others providers.

I also have had nothing but excellent customer service with BBVI. It's one of the major benefits of doing business with them. Every time I've contacted them with a question or a problem, it was resolved quickly, efficiently and very pleasantly. I would recommend them over any of the other providers I have had experience with (Choice, Innovative).

The residential and business rates are here http://broadband.vi/residential.php and here http://broadband.vi/business.php

This is probably the most popular rate:
