Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


Not too long ago I blogged about ways by which Dominicans abroad, especially in the USA and Canada, could call home to the Nature Island for free, or for very little. I’ve done some follow-up. Recently, Forbes magazine published an article about the de-facto expansion of SKYPE by linking it with MySpace.

I also did some follow-up with 3U about telephoning. What 3U told me about itself probably applies to other similar low-cost telephone companies – Dominica has too small a population to make it economical for 3U to place a call hub in-country; thus any call to 3U itself from Dominica must be international long-distance, obviating any potential savings for callers.

Here’s a thought: Years ago I visited some remote areas in Nova Scotia. I discovered that the government (I don’t know whether it was the national or provincial government) provided a public access internet site for free. What if Dominica were to do so too, say, in each government school building? It would be extremely useful to the educators during the school day, could be reserved for teachers’ research for some times, and other times made available to serve the communication needs of Dominicans in need?
