Wireless internet should work where ever your cell phone will work. If you have sprint, and they have coverage in the Bahamas, you should be able to connect. They work by dialing a dedicated phone number and connecting to the cell network much like a dial-up modem.

Though the costs for international roaming could be staggering. And you may have to add an international option to your account first.
