High Speed Internet Access in the Dominican Republic compared to Haiti

High Speed Internet Access in the Dominican Republic compared to Haiti

How does High Speed Internet Access in the Dominican Republic compare to Internet access in Haiti in terms of price and availability. Let's take a look...

Let's compare internet access in the Dominican Republic to internet access in Haiti.

In the Dominican Republic right now, a customer will have at home high speed internet with a speed of 10 Mbps, cable television with up to 150 channels and 400 minutes on a home phone, all of that will cost 1949 pesos. That's about $39 us.

For 500 pixels more, roughly $10 US more, that same customer will get a higher speed internet access that is up to 30 megabits per second.

Let's compare that to Haiti.

First of all, as of August 2018, there is no such package in Haiti. Internet access at 1 megabits per second in Haiti cost $55 US, just for the internet, and it's not even operating at that promised speed of 1 megabits per second.

You do the math.

Look at this photo... Survivor Gilbert Jean, 93, survived the Dominican Parlsey massacre (Spanish: el corte) that was carried out in October 1937 against Haitians living in the Dominican Republic.

He says his family was friendly with local officials, who warned them about the coming massacre so they could flee before the soldiers caught them. "Trujillo did it because he hated us, because he didn't want to see black people in his country. It was in his roots to be racist," he says.
