My daughter's boyfriend needs a high speed internet connection for a video call tomorrow. Divi's been great trying to solve the issue, however, we are concerned it's just not going to be reliable. We can't afford for it not to work. He's got an important call/interview that he unfortunately can't postpone.

Does anyone on the Island know of a place that would offer a somewhat private area for him to take the call tomorrow morning? Some suggested "Mailbox" but we're just not sure. I thought I should ask the experts! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

The Mailbox used to offer the service and I believe as of 18 months ago they still did. I would contact them to be sure.

MAILBOX The service is still listed but the last time I was in the store it had been downsized. I would contact them to be sure. Good luck.

That's what I was going to suggest, the Mailbox.

Could he just turn on his cell phone for the day and use that connection. Or tether it to a computer or iPad?? High speed on the island isn’t like high speed in the US. I have fiber in my condo and giggle at the speed - but it seems to work. And I have done zoom with my Verizon phone while sitting on a beach.

Thank you for the suggestions which I've passed along. He's a tech guy, I am not. The call seems to be more involved though than a standard zoom call. I guess we will have to see what happens tomorrow..

Verizon has a couple different international options, including one that is a Monthly but has more gigs before throttling down than the normal monthly plan. We did this for the last trip and we will the next. We at times need to work remotely, but it allows us longer trips.
Cheers, T
