Several Locations in the BVI have recently improved their WIFI capabilities. You can often get free Internet
from your boat's mooring
. Paid WIFI access can be expensive. Most of the BVI INTERNET Café's charge an arm and leg ( $10.00) for connections... even if you have a large meal with several people. Some charge an initial fee then for each minute and it really makes no difference if you use your own or a supplied computer.
Generally good free WIFI is available at most Pussers locations and you have the option of some really good and inexpensive Rum!!
At Trellis Bay you have a great connection from your mooring
via The Loose Mongoose... you should give them some business for the service
and they are the best place to hang out and serve 3 meals
a day and a great weekly BBQ.
Many other locations have in-house WIFI which has limited range unless you go for one of the booster systems.
The most practical is the cellular connection that LIME and the others offer but the cost is about $65.00 per month but you no longer have to set up a contract
for a year... just the months you are going to be in the area. You do need to have a modem
, but many lap tops now come with them and you can pick one up for under $100 if you need one.
HOWEVER, you are loosing one of the best reasons for going to the islands if you continue all your state side bad habits... such as the need for continuous Internet access. Get out and try a NEW Communication system. TALK to people directly face to face... even those you don't yet know. I assure you it is by far the best / most interesting communications
you will have.
Believe it or not... a person, including YOU, CAN live with out INTERNET. After a few days of withdrawal... you probably will not miss it as all. That is when you have reached the Lim'n stage and your becoming a Caribbean
