  1. Hell all, We will be visiting in February. Are their any ways to learn using pesos? I am not worried about exchange rates, just a way to feel comfortable using them. Thanks, CCW
  2. Tkessler, Is there a lawyer there that could look at the contracts etc to get some legal answers to a lot of the comments on here?
  3. Tkessler, There is a Facebook Group, Working from Home Lakeside, that would love to hear about this. I am sure you would get many people to sign up. Also, we are not planning to move down there for a year, but don't know where we will be living. Is there a way to sign up now to show my interest in this? Thanks.
  4. ComputerGuy, thanks for the compliment. I would like others to read it carefully too and see if I missed anything.
  5. I did find and read the English Contracts document. I found these 2 statements that might need to be more specific: b. Install, maintain and operate the network to the terminal connecting point at the inner edge of the building where is located the address "SUBSCRIBER". c. Install the equipment in the home of "SUBSCRIBER" and it noted on the cover of this Agreement. Here in Maryland, Comcast Cable does run the cable from the pole to the building. Running the cables inside the house/building can cost extra. And installing the "equipment" means them coming inside and hooking up the modem/router. I am very interested to see more details. I hope I am not coming off as negative.
  6. I read the FAQ as ComputerGuy did. I did not see any detailed information. The link provided in the FAQ to the CFE document is in Spanish. Is there an English version available? Tkessler, are you involved in the business side of this?
  7. Toilet paper flushing

    Al Berca, We keep toilet paper in the car here NOB. lol
  8. Toilet paper flushing

    Wow..a lot of different information.
  9. Toilet paper flushing

    We will be looking for a long term rental late next year. I do not want my first question about the rentals I will looking at to be "Can I flush toilet paper here"? We will probably use a real estate company for our first rental to feel a bit more comfortable. I understand that there is no law for the agent/landlord to disclose any problems. I would hope that they would tell the truth so a plumber doesn't have to come and visit.
  10. Toilet paper flushing

    My wife and I are looking to move there late next year. Living in the us, our first reaction to hearing about this was "OMG, we can't live like that". But from what I have read, people adjust to putting it in a waste can.
  11. Hello all, I have seen a lot of information regarding the flushing of toilet paper due to bad infrastructure. I realize this can vary by location. What percentage of housing have this issue? Thanks.
  12. CG, my wife and I will be visiting in February 2018 for 2 weeks and planning on moving at the end of the year. If you use your crystal ball, do you think any of the infrastructure will be "upgraded" in certain areas by then? I would hate to limit where to look for long term rentals based on internet speed as our first priority. Heck, we would be willing to rent an additional space that has the speeds. Maybe get a few people to chip in.
  13. After reading here and on several other boards, I heard a few people mention that fiber was being run near Chapala Haciendas and a hotel there. Also the new hospital may get fiber. We are not moving there until late 2018, so I am just doing some research. ComputerGuy, you chart has me all depressed. We live in Baltimore and Comcast Cable has us at 125mb down and 25mb up. My wife is not doing any video or graphic work, just using a VPN to her work and doing a lot of Excel work.
  14. ComputerGuy, Do you know which areas currently have fiber internet? There is a small group of users over at the Facebook Group "Working from home Lakeside" that may be interested in finding a place that has fiber internet. The idea would be to lease/rent a space that has it (apt/casita, etc) so we can telecommute. This idea is still in its infant stages. Let me know what you think.
  15. Angus, do you want my budget or my wife's budget? lol. Of course there are several factors, but max would be around $18,000 MXN.
