I added three new St. Croix restaurant reviews on Yelp:

Lalita Juice Bar and Raw Food

Salud Bistro

Smokin' Butts Bar-b-que

Woo hoo! Just got an email from my ISP on St. Croix (Ackley Communications) saying that they are merging with Broadband VI and increasing our wireless DSL speed from 384kbps to 1Mbps (synchronous). They are also combining their two 155MBps links to the mainland for redundancy purposes.

One of my friends also works for Choice Communications. They provide a great Internet service here as well, especially if you need near line-of-sight. Last I checked, their pricing is higher than Ackley / Broadband VI for the same speed, so I will stick with Ackley / Broadband VI for now.

Looks like St. Croix is finally moving into the 21st century for Internet connectivity. It can only get better.
