Telephone Companies
We have 4 major telephone companies in the country. The telephone/ Communications in Dominican Republic are fairly reliable. There is basic home telephone service, internet and cell phone services. Many of the out laying areas do not have land lines and cell phone service is sporadic. In the cities there is usually no problem with service. Home telephone service can be expensive. There are different services from paying for each call to having unlimited local calling. This is why most people have cell phones and most of these are the pre paid kind. Here one must remember: when calling a cell phone from a home phone there is a charge on the home phone to make this call. this is why many pay phones will not let you call a cell phone. When calling a cell phone from a land line you must dial 1 before the number.
