Anyone have any info on this? I'd like to know as well. Also how fast is the high speed internet service? Can you easily send and receive large file sizes... say 100MB or more? Thanks. I've done a search but the info I've found is a bit outdated.

Congratulations on the plans Tim...

If your equipment uses a DC brick, there shouldn't be a problem. If it uses AC power, then Budget Marine can set you up with a charger/inverter/battery setup that will render you immune to power variation (and act as a large UPS as well).

May I also suggest that if you are going to operate a business out of Bonaire, not only do you get the high speed internet, but you invest in the DSL through Telbo here (the phone system). The internet can go down pretty often (it was down in our neighborhood for about 8 hours the other day, and you can always use Telbo as a back up. I know a couple of businesses that do that down here. It really has been a life saver.

I had a terrible time Nov. and Dec. with Flamingo. I never found out the problem but I had no internet for a good part of 3 weeks. And now when it rains it goes out ...sigh...I rely soley on the internet for work and my child's home school program so it was not a happy time at my house.

Hi guys: We are currently living in Arizona and just bought a house on Bonaire. We just moved from town to the country which had electric but no phones and no cable tv service. So we went cellular for phone and satellite for internet. Most satellite internet connections are in the $90 - $100 per month

It'll work well until it's confiscated. Satellite uplinks are illegal in the Netherlands Antilles.

I forgot to mention the back tax bill of 2000 guilders/month for every month you've lived on the island that you will be presented with when they do.

Why is it illegal? Everyone is griping about how bad the service is (read above comments) and sounds like it is all dial up. Sounds like you really need some improvements. Is it the fact that it is a private company not a netherlands connection that bothers them? The airways should belong to the people of the planet.

Protectionism. You will have to get used to it, here. There are regulations on self-generation of power, too.

Did I read somewhere that they were putting fiber optic cable down? Anyone have any info on this? One would think that should help the internet connection speed.
