Follow-Up: The Internet That I Use in San Pedro

On January 31st 2012, I had no internet and was distraught.  So, I bought a new “gadget” that is relatively new to the island.  This little USB internet stick from Smart would provide me service, was relatively cheap and promised to be relatively quick.  I told you guys about it and promised a follow-up.  Well…hereKeep reading »
