Best Internet service in BVI?

Will be sailing on Sunsail charter next month for two weeks. Sadly, I really need to stay in touch with my business while i'm away. Does anyone have any recommendations for good Internet service?

Thanks so much!

Beth, I can't speak to island wide internet services, but when I was there, I could pick up email on my Iphone in the western BVIs. (Norman's, Sopers Hole, Jost Van Dyke, et). Tui Marine offered it for free at the base and I could get it at Spanish Town. That had me fairly well covered. I'm sure there are other places as well.

at t works best. usually if you have line of site to st thomas it works on at t. i would shut roaming networks off or you will probably have a huge bill. vigin gorda, normans, tortola, and the others have wireless at the bars, if you anchor close enough it works on the boat.

I was there last year with a different company who provided us with a Lime cell phone and a wifi on the boat. Check with Sunsail to see what they offer.
