  1. If you expect an answer you might tell us where and which company or you just complaining?
  2. Unless you run streaming audio or such 24 hours a day you don't know how many times a day Telmex drops out. Some are server problems but for sure I can say Totalplay is a better product.
  3. OK I had ILOX (350) and Totalplay (100) and ran streaming audio 24 hours a day. ILOX would go out 8 times an hours on average. Totalplay maybe 4 times a day. Totalplay phone works, ILOX never did work. ILOX only worked with Clear Choice streaming provider, Total play works with all of them. I have since dropped ILOX as it is not needed and go with only Totalplay. Same exact problems with neighbors ILOX. They went to Totalplay. Glad someone has had good luck with ILOX but it wasn't myself or my friends in SE SAT.
  4. Note not all routers can be configured as an access point easily. You can end up with double NAT connection which can cause problems sometimes especially with gaming. An access point is made out of the box to be a WIFI extender. I have one 10 year old access point that has four SMA antenna and the ability to have higher power is I choose too. If I was doing it over now I would put in a mesh system.
  5. Note infection rate in mexico for Omicron is low. It is not low in US or Europe . Source Guad reporter, Reforma, and Mexico daily news. This can change at any time so talking about a football game and infection rates is meaningless.
  6. They work sometimes. You have to be close to the original modem for them to work well. They are not a miracle product. I prefer to use an access point. They come in two types. One needs a internet cable connection the other uses WIFI to be repeated. Many people put a mesh system which works best but costs most. Ask around some of your friends have done this before. Good luck!
  7. Add 2 hours at the airport waiting for the 35 min flight.
  8. A KN95 mask is slightly harder to breath thru but I didn't notice. A N95 mask is more difficult to get. I use medical surgical masks which are very effective and much easier to breath with than either of the 95 masks.
  9. Folks the sparker things are NOT Tasers. A taser ejects a small string and with hooks on the end and supplies a current. I know because I was stupid enough to volunteer to be tased once. These are not legal. The noise making (sound of sparks) are legal but require contact to work other than the noise. Unit gets you too close to the dogs mouth which I try to avoid. Lets get our terms correct to avoid confusion. People at Ajijic wednesday market near the key maker sell these legal sparking units. Carried one for years and useful on most dogs but the most aggressive dogs it had no effect. Now I carry a rock like the mexicans it works much better on the aggressive dogs.
  10. Sorry but ILOX infrastructure was new and it sucked from the start and still sucks. Drop outs every hour. The phone never worked. I was also a Telecom engineer and worked with Glass fiber and plastic fiber and its pretty rugged stuff as long as you keep the backhoe and tree trimmers away.
  11. I was one of the first totalplay customers and it has gone down once when a pole was hit and the phone has never failed excluding pole being hit. Was going to keep ILOX as a backup but decided to cancel due to a lack of need. I have 100 down and 10 up service and can watch a streaming HD movie while my wife does a video call and we have streaming audio running all at the same time with no problems. If you work from home and move files to the north you might want more upload speed but for normal stuff its just not needed. Best decision I have ever made regarding internet.
  12. They can help or not. So it depends. The booster has to be close enough to the modem to get a good signal and than rebroadcast that signal. I would buy an access point box myself rather than the plug into the wall ac plug type of repeater.
