  1. Disable your translation app, i.e. Google Translate on your browser if in place. After quickly connecting this am to register, got to page 2, inputting phone number, email, location etc. Hit "Send" nothing. Exited and tried 3x more, no success. Saw that the submission was attempting to go through Google translate first which did not work.
  2. Max per transfer is 980.0 USD, no limit on # of transfers. I just did 2 in one day. In checking with TW they are working on a new set of parameters with their partner on Mexico transfers, so the current limit is not seen as being long term.
  3. "Riberas was one of the areas that lagged for long time."......noting that SJC and further West is never mentioned. Not even Ilox wants to discuss, they just want those west of SJC to get refunds, that way it will be the consumer's fault that service was never provided to those areas, they weren't willing to wait 3 years, no demand in the area.
  4. Thx Ferret, sums it all up. Prepaid March 2018, 2 locations. .....after going into the Ilox Office in late November, 2019 and being told maybe 6 months, mid 2020 before installs would be done in the SJC to Las Fluentes corridor, I was asked at the time if I wanted a refund. Which I declined. My perception was that the office person in Ajijic was following a script that if any one who has paid from the SJC to Las Fluentes comes in, seeking information, ask them if they want a refund. As soon as I mentioned I lived east of SJC, the rep was apologetic, understanding. So in January I
  5. Well thats great for those who have the service.....while those living in between SJC and Las Fluentes have nothing.
  6. Thx Computer Guy for the info. Hoping some of those 400 units will make their West, however given past Ilox install focus, most will be used in the core area.
  7. RE: Ilox service on West end of lake. Stopped by the Ilox office two weeks ago, was told 6 months. Finally subscribed to Telcel Wireless, works great, has a data cap, but 10 down, 5-10 up consistently is far better than .8 down/.3 up and unfilled contractual obligations from Ilox. While at the office I asked if I lived in Ajijic, core area, if I signed up today, would I get service within a week? YES, without any hesitation.
  8. I really enjoy reading about a quick install, not only once, but now a second time, for a non pre paid? Using money I contributed the project no less, while I've got no service. I started this thread for prepaids not being serve, not those that jumped on the bandwagon, got quick installs.
  9. Well from all of the comments, no response from Ilox via email yet, it appears that from San Antonio, installation is going to the far West in Las Fuentes, skipping San Juan Cosala and then moving from West to East to SJC? Or until there is a spike in installs in the core area and they shift back there. Appreciate everyone's comments, realize that many of these sub topics have been posted/revisted/commented on in numerours posts. When you got nothing, you got nothing
  10. The purpose of this post was to address concerns of the Prepaids, those who put money up front to get the project started, and who are still waiting to get service. So posting comments about literally getting service on the fly, no previous investment, isn't relevant to the post. Understand that I have 17,000.0 invested in the project since March of 2018 and will probably still be waiting come January of 2020 for service.
  11. Final comment, unless I get an email to my question as to when installs will start from SJC to Joco. There is really no urgency/incentive for Ilox to do installs SJC and to the West. Reason being is that Telmex is not doing any upgrades. Reality is that our service has declined from a max of 1.75 down over the last 8 years to .8 download. So Ilox given what is being offered, has the "new monopoly" on internet service to the West. As there are far fewer prepaids/potential subscribers SJC/West as compared to the core area, the possibility of losing some prepaids, giving refunds, is
  12. What was odd about the statement was how fast he responded to my question, didn't even pause, in fact he was standing at the time as I had just asked about the modems, then asked him how many customers.
  13. Follow up actions I did; 1. emailed noc@mail.ilox.mx, no response to date. Gustavo at the Ajijic Ilox office, speaks English, confirmed that he got my email, after I had identified myself through the presentation of the two contracts I have with Ilox West of San Juan Coslala. He said that install updates in terms of the geographical area are only available via the GDL office. Which he called, but his contact was NA. He indicated he would sent me an email once he got the requested info. 2. I went to the Ilox office, which was manned by Gustavo, who speaks English. If you
  14. What's the current geographical area of focus lakeside where installs are taking place? That's all I'm asking. Please don't hijack the thread by telling me how wonderful the service, problems you're having, asking for free tech advise, other options etc. To a prepaid, especially located west of San Juan Cosala, where Ilox sightings are rare its like rubbing salt in an open wound. Thank you in advance for information based on my request.
  15. Had an errand in Joco on Monday, so on the way back, looked for Ilox drops? Large rolls of cable, with a black box, hung on CFE poles? So if I'm correct in identifying there are drops starting on the East end of Joco, by the tire shop all the way into SJC. However a distinct gap in front of the El Tempisque entrance. We're .64 km( 2112 feet) from the highway to our house, lot of cable and there's probably only 3-5 at the most interested in Ilox in our area. Being a prepaid means nothing, only that you paved the way for the project to become real. Actually was behind a Ilox car fr
  16. "Right now they're in Raquet Club, then they'll go to Riberas, then probably back towards Joco." As a Westender, living beyond San Juan Cosala, March 2018 prepaid, I hope those living from San Juan Cosala to Joco can stay the course. Its frustrating I know, we have a .8 download/.4 upload on a good day, on the weekend, hours without service as the GDL's come out, to be getting further behind in service as the core areas are being built up even more from service that we've never had. Since moving to El Tempisque 8+ years ago we have declined steadily from the 1.75 down we started with.
  17. In El Limon, we have a house just completed last fall. Have been unable to get phone/internet from Telmex, request was put in last August. "Lack of available lines" is what I hear monthly when I go in to check on status. I've heard varying reports of 1-5 megs download from people who live in El Limon. We are signed up for Ilox. In El Tempisque where we've lived for 8 years the Internet service has declined from a average of 1.75 download to now about .650. The reason for the poor service is twofold. Telmex has refused to put in a repeater every 800 meters from the last one in SJC.
  18. "they are still trying to get all the prepaids at Raquet Club done and then will move on to Riberas, Chula Vista, and San Antonio." So rather than continue to move West San Juan Cosala, El Limon, El Tempisque, Joco to install prepaids....they are doubling back to the above areas? Second question: Do new signups, who were not part of the prepaids, pay the upfront fee that was required of the prepaids to get the project moving forward? If not I'm starting to think that my upfront fees are being used to create the infrastructure for the new signups....and that eventually Ilox will
  19. Thanks to those who posted. Solved: The message being posted when attempting to access online Bancomer banking was legit. Access was being blocked because the 16 digit number on the expired debit card, that is also used to set up online banking, was no longer valid. Note this 16 digit number is not your actual bank account number. So because the expired card had been terminated every time I tried to access the BC online set I got the above msg. Basically, you're blocked. Yes, you had terminated your old card but not your actual bank account, just the numbers for online acc
  20. Anyone who does online banking encountered this msg: MOTIVO DE BAJA POR SOLICITUD DEL CLIENTE -MPE1353- Meaning?
  21. "There have been challenges in successfully contacting all of the prepaid to schedule their installations, especially in Ajijic Centro...People are out..donĀ“t answer their phone, etc. That has caused a couple of cases where they've installed some people who just signed up -- to keep the crews busy. Can you blame them? They have a business to run too." How long is Ilox giving prepaid an opportunity to respond, before they are put to the bottom of the list? As to keeping the "crews busy" there is plenty to do to the West. I've seen two Ilox "scouting" in the El Limon, El Tempisque ar
  22. Just returned from the states sent you a PM Mrs. R....plenty of room
  23. Thanks for post, I responded to your PM. Just looking to network a group of players who would want to meet as as a group, say once a month, then play individually. There's a difference between playing someone online versus face to face. That being said there are sites for online private tournaments. So a lot of flexibility Keeping it simple, informal.
