Without Your Own Computer

Most hotels and resorts in the TCI feature small business centers or libraries where guests have complimentary use of computers with high-speed Internet access. The number of computers available is often limited, however, and you may have to wait your turn to use one.

With Your Own Computer

The wireless world (Wi-Fi) is up and rolling on the Turks and Caicos Islands; most resorts have wireless Internet access. For dial-up access, most business-class hotels offer dataports for laptop modems. In addition, major Internet service providers (ISPs) have local access numbers around the world, allowing you to go online by placing a local call.

Calling Home

Calling home from the Turks & Caicos to a foreign number requires use of that country's international area code. Making international calls from the Turks and Caicos can be costly, in particular if you're dialing direct from your hotel room, where you may be charged more than $2 a minute. You can use any GSM cellphone if it has international roaming capabilities; ask your provider about activating international roaming capability before you leave home. One way to avoid the high costs of calling home from your hotel room is to use your unlocked GSM phone and buy a local prepaid SIM card in the TCI.
