    If possible, could, you post a picture of the Caricel Huawei Modem on here. I would like to see the unit and how it performs. I would love to use their services, especially the 150 Mbp/s internet speeds they say that they offer.

    Don't let them fool u about 150 megs. They should be punished for false advertisement. I have never gotten over 5 megs except once when they gave me new SIM card and I got 18 megs. However that was short lived and now am back to 5megs. They cap the SIM card not device. There are pics of the modem here tho. I urge u to have them do a test of the speeds using the same device u buying infront of u.

    To me it's not worth it if u thinking of replacing your home internet or your lte from Digicel internet. For one,u get a us flogged and Spammed out IP address and so all your transactions are flagged by merchant. I had so many accounts locked and had to explain how comes I say am in Jamaica and have us ip. Especially PayPal.

    If u get past 50 megs or if anyone is getting past 50 megs using them the or even 30 megs then lemme know and I would gladly take back my word but I have proof they acknowledge the service is capped

    A representative from the company told me that for the student package, it is currently capped at 5 Mbp/s, but for the General Public packages, they have speeds of up to 150 Mbp/s. The rep also stated that they are having severe challenges with Third party Networks and providers. She said that the cap is in place to test the Network, and reduce the stress on the limited amount of equipment they have at this time.

    Its all a trick. Just beware their student package is the majority of their network. When they were selling no reference to this cap was mentioned. They cant be held to their words because i have someone with another package and its still not passing 10 megs with inconsistent speeds however u can surely ask them to test the modem u shall get in person and see how that works.

    Also wasnt told bout any caps when i first sign up, the speed that i posted i was getting earlier in this thread, i was still getting until recently when the service went down for me for a couple days. Ever since it came back up, its just been crappy, lucky to get over 3 let alone 5megs consistently, even in the nights and im getting full signal on the modem, 3 to 4 out the 5 bars when i log into the modem.
    Signup for a 3 month plan in late december, got a call last week that i have a payment due from the end of january. Still havent gotten a call back to clarify the issue and im still having problems getting through to customer service. Disappointed, much i am.

    Same here. It's just not unlimited if your capped to a certain speed or such In my view

    i wish i was getting even 2mb here and am spending more for my data on digi wimax and lime superwifi.... 5mb would be a relief for me... if i was caricel i would launch inthe west cause people in the east not so appreciative...
    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
