  1. You keep saying that people move here with full knowledge of lack of facilities. Perhaps you're unaware that there is a huge variance in the quality of internet speed from one neighborhood to the next, or even parts of the same town, from street to street. I am not "whining" when I complain about the poor 3 mbps download speed at my house. I will continue to do it. I won't move to Guad to get better broadband, as has been suggested. The hostility of some posts on the subject of trying to get good internet service is kind of amazing.
  2. Thanks for the info. I'll refer this anode rod to my plumber. I never heard of it before. I live in SAT also. Sulfur smell roughly 2 weeks or so. Ajibe is clean and filtered.
  3. Just to clarify, Speedify has a flat fee for unlimited data, so not clear on your point if you're referring to that. Where I live in SAT, Telmex is unusable most weekend nights, so combining the two at least gives me a steady connection without disconnects. Usually.
  4. Izzy is the current business name for what we still call Telecable. You buy their ISP service. Then if you have Telmex's Infinitum as your other service, Speedify combines them.
  5. Speedify is an online service which claims to boost speed. It works by taking two isps and supposedly combines them to increase the speed. I use it to combine two lousy services, Izzy and Telmex. The main benefit that I see is fewer disconnects, but I have terrible speeds on both ISPs. It was recommended by a friend who swears by it. I had it installed by the Computer Guy, Mike Riley. The instructions aren't crystal clear, so I needed the help. It cost about $5 a month.
  6. There are noise laws. My neighborhood, further east on La Paz, has two popular eventos. One of our Mexican neighbors talked to the town hall, took up a petition. Things are much improved.
  7. So not so new to this board are you? Harassment of other posters still isn't appreciated here.
  8. Thanks much. I responded a month ago with all of the requested info and heard nothing. Just resent to the addy you provided.
  9. I don't know your relationship to the OP, but it seems strange to read your comments on someone's else financial business on a public forum.
  10. Oh, thanks for that link. I was on another site which led me to believe they were selling groups of smiling families.
  11. Thanks. I assumed it did, but wanted to verify. I didn't try hard enough on my first expedition through their website.
  12. I wrote back to the sender to ask the difference between the triple plan and the doble. The cheaper doble lists telephone while the triple doesn't. If anyone here has information, please share. As far as barcelonaman's issues with being asked to finance projects, I'm not so concerned about that. I've known several people locally who haven't been able to get Telmex service until they pay for poles and lines to reach their property. I'm just grateful fo the opportunity to get high speed service.
  13. I can help you this far. Ixtlahuacan de los Membrillos
  14. Please don't lock the thread, because a troll posts offensive material in it. This rewards his behavior.
  15. You can also google. There is a large website with contact info.
  16. Completely understand. I have experience with a US telcom, so I was thinking getting something this century would be fantastic. There are a lot of logistics and investment on their side that weren't even under consideration before Tom started.
  17. This is not an NGO. It is a telcom coming into a new area. There was one post from a someone who advocated some kind of consumer group to collectively deal with them. If you read the reaction to that, it went no where. Again if you read the thread, one unbelievable persistent community member approached the telcom and got this whole thing in place. We have no fiber optic here yet, so I don't understand the point about online teaching. When Ilox puts in its fiber optic, if you're in an area they cover, you'll have the option of being their customer or Telmex. Or Izzy. Those are the main internet, phone options around here. Rereading your post, I assumed this forum is not the "Digital Community Meeting" you are referring to?
  18. Angus. Why are you trolling this thread? Seriously. You don't understand the content and apparently are disturbed by it. Go somewhere else. This post is vulgar, offensive, and uncalled for.
  19. I have this image in mind that I can't shake. Tony's son being picked up and given a good shake by a lady ferret. It seems to have done him good.
  20. There is a puff pastry dough from Costco. I've never used it and thought I would do something clever. It was huge, vicious, and defeated me. It escaped by hiding in the trash can.
