3G Caribbean Internet.

Recall.
Hi guys, I've just realised I've spread some misinformation on here in the past regarding 3G coverage in the Caribbean. I had thought you just needed 2 digicel sims to cover Grenada to BVIs but have just realised you need 3. One for the French islands, one for the northern islands (Antigua, BVI ) and one for the southern (st Lucia to Grenada )
I just tried to use my Antigua card in st Lucia with no luck, then remembered another card is needed. Rates vary, 130EC you 16 GB in the north. 180EC will get you 10GB in the south and the French islands have recently changed to a no plan/1c/mb system, so €10/GB. All offer decent speeds and coverage.
Feel free to add any other info here for different providers, lime etc.

Re: 3G Caribbean Internet.

I use Digicel for WiFi purchased on Anguilla. Doesn't work in Tórtola, but does in SXM. Could you please elaborate as to what other Sims (from what country to purchase from) I need to complete the set? I to am please with the speeds and price for bandwidth.

Re: 3G Caribbean Internet.

Thanks for the info.

3 G will be a challenge for me. I do lots of stuff on the web, and the amount of data I use would be very expensive using 3 G.
