Here is an actual DSL Speed test taken from my Access Haiti 3G Internet access in Hinche Haiti. This is for the "Residential Plan Basic Package" with a promised speed of 256 kbps download and 128 kbps upload...

At the time of the test, I was getting 30 kbps (4 kB/s) download speed and 93 Kbps (12 kB/s) upload speed...

For about $33 US, tax included, I can barely listen to an online radio station without it cutting up.

So you're thinking... Why would I get an Internet package with 256 Kpbs download to start with?

Answer: In Haiti, Internet Access cost an arm and a leg. If you want High speed internet, expect to pay 142 to 230 gourdes per gigabyte of high speed Internet... That's USD $3.15 to $5.10 per gigabyte of download...

Think about it, Natcom charges 800 Gourdes for 3.5 GB of high speed Internet, Digicel charges 1,000 gourdes for 7 GB.

Access Haiti charges $358.80 per month (that's over 16,000 Gourdes) for their Platinum Internet plan with a download speed of only 3 Mbps.

These Expensive Internet plans are for NGOs maybe, not for the average consumer in Haiti.

I tried to upgrade to the $60 US Bronze package, that was a headache... Access Haiti increased my bill to $60 US but they did not increase the internet speed one kilobyte more!

It is really sad to admit that in a Capital city that Hinche is (Chef lieu du Departement du Centre) one cannot get a decent Unlimited Internet Access for a decent price.
