  1. Internet only, speed goes to 50 meg after 3/mo. I signed a new contract with c/w ofc. in Boquete (I had 3 meg ADSL). BTW fiber optic is available mostly Bajo Boquete for now, AFAIK.
  2. 1000 meg, first 3 months, $33/mo from Cable and Wireless. The fiber cable goes into the box inside my house.
  3. There is a free smartphone app I use "Dminder" that shows I can get about 4000 IU in about 15 minutes here. For those folks that were stuck in apartments/condos without direct sunlight, too bad. However, starting Monday, get cracking! You are probably deficient, particularly retirees!
  4. That's really fast! How expensive? Last week c/w ran optic down my street and said i could connect in a week or two. How did you get notified it was ready? I know I need to sign a new contract to get it, but the office is closed and the c/w website isn't much help. I currently have 3 meg ADSL line from c/w.
  5. Seniors (who have more health problems, bad backs, hips, knees, etc) can't stand and wait 30-40 minutes. There has to be a better way. Do decisions makers read CL?
  6. The longer lines at some markets keep people near each other and out of their homes for longer times. Isn't that what is supposed to be limited?
  7. Makes sense! Not yours to rent. So my servidumbre has a guava tree (7.5 meters from road centerline). Can anybody help themselves to the fruit? Not a problem, just curious?
  8. Bud, I just sent money to a Panamanian Ngäbe worker from my PayPal account (US) to his that uses https://www.paypal.me/***, with *** being his user ID. I am not sure he has a Panama bank account. I will have to ask him how he set it up. There is a PayPal Me that I think he signed up for.
  9. WU is great. I set up an account as backup. Also have the app on my iphone. When none of my debit cards worked on a trip to Colombia, I sent money to myself, this saved me. Fees were reasonable.
  10. Wells Fargo & Co. on Wednesday detailed steps it has taken to address problems following a series of scandals that have resulted in more than $4 billion in fines and settlements since 2016 and tougher scrutiny from regulators. also: https://nypost.com/2016/10/19/wells-fargo-under-criminal-investigation-over-fake-accounts/ Keith, this took me less than a minute. You could have done this yourself.
  11. Interesting. I worked in electronic banking for a REALLY big bank. We had redundant data centers mirroring each other in realtime to avoid any possible disasters/glitches. So in addition to being a criminal enterprise, they appear to be incompetent too.
  12. I believe you can get one from US Embassy/Consul and send to them. I did this in the past, when they were here in Boquete. Now a lot of this SS stuff has been transferred to US Embassy, CR, so heads up on that.
