Slow internet 128k with outages?!? So much for telecommuting

:(

I was really let down to find out how slow the internet speeds in Saipan are.

I can't believe how slow cable internet is, it's like 1-20th the speed of my cable modem here. Saipan is 128k according to www.mcvcnmi.com I called them twice to ask, you have to call them to get accurate rates, the highspeed rates are only available in Guam.

This is going to be a deal breaker.

DSL is faster than cable on the island. They also don't have the outages frequently experienced by MCV. I switched to DSL with IT&E a year ago and am very happy with the service. I get 1Mbps for $85 a month, which is considerably better than the 128k you are talking about.
