Internet and Telephone Services in Long Island, Bahamas

Internet Services in Long Island Bahamas:

My entire point of having the villa was to get away from it all.
You can, however, set up wifi with your cell phone or computer OR go to one of the restaurants for free wi-fi.
To set up your own wifi, you simple need to go to BTC (deadman's cay) to purchase a simm card then take out your own simm card in your phone or computer and replace with the BTC simm card. They charge $30 for 250 gb.

Or bring an unlocked dongle with you.
A dongle gives you wireless access from your computer by plugging it into the usb port.

Or you can use your own long distance service or hot spot. If you have an iphone simply call your cell provider to have them take internation calls and turn it into a hot spot for your own computer.

For more information check the below link to see if it will work with your computer will work with this dongle or contact BTC direct http://www.btcbahamas.com/
You can also purchase your own dongle to use in your computer if so desired.

For now free internet is available for free if you were to order a meal at most all restaurants on the island:
AND the Long Island tourist center in Salt Pond (yellow building in front of the Salt Pond Dock)

Telephone Services in Long Island Bahamas:
We do not currently have local telephone service available (the reason is we purchased this house to get away from it all).
Most all cell phones work on Long Island.
However it is expensive to call the USA from Long Island if you don't sign up for International rates prior to your departure.

If you have a phone card you may be able to use it connected to your computer from our beach house.
AT&T phone card works but you may want to check into international rates.
Our housekeeper Maria also rents her cell phone out. Ask her for details once you get to Long Island.

If you have the capabilities to insert a Simm Card into your telephone,
you can get one at BTC (in Simms or Deadman's Cay) to use while you are on the island.
Simm Cards come in 25, 50 or 100 minute increments.
My suggestion is to first check your telephone to see if it works, if not,
stop at BTC on the way back to the villa - it will save you a 20 mile trip.

You can also purchase a cell phone at BTC for $100.
