  1. Does anyone have any experience using Sky for your internet? Quality and reliability? Thanks
  2. i need an expert to help me connect extenders in my home. Any suggestions would be welcome. You can call 331-746-1288 or email me at jbrickman@mac.com/
  3. Gents/Ladies, A moment of your time if I may........ I really like a house there(Chula Vista Country Club), but it's high up, surrounded by trees etc I require a fast(getting 40megs from here in Chapala currently, but obviously I don't expect that speed, although I'm hearing La Floresta may be getting or already have fibre optic cables-hmm the internet wasn't great when we lived there) and reliable internet -likely with Telmex & Wizz(used to be telecable). Appreciate any info from residents there or friends of, re internet. Many Thanks, JJ ......Lakeside
  4. From what little I understand, adding lots of new subscribers does not degrade DSL (as each subscriber has separate, physical wires to the telco), but will degrade cable internet (which has a shared circuit). What about fiber optic?
  5. Anyone using sky satellite for internet? If so, does it work as advertised in terms of speed and reliability?
  6. My sister arrived here in September and had Telecable installed on Santa Isabela, Riberas. She has had problems with them but when she left everything was working. She has since gone home. We arrived on Tuesday and we have no internet. I assumed that the modem had died because there is not indication it has power. No lights etc. I went to Telecable on Tuesday and they told me they created a work order and they would be around some time this week. Needing Internet my wife went there today and was told oh no we are not sending someone around. The Internet is being worked on and will be fixed s
  7. Has anyone tried the wireless internet from ATT yet? They ask that you buy the modem for $1750 MN or lease it for $49 MN per month. The service is $350 MN per month for 10 mbs. The also offer a 5 mbs. This is tempting in some areas where Telmex can not deliver 10 mbs. Has anyone tried it and what is your experience?
  8. Hi All, This won't be news to those of you that have Telecable, but if you don't, avoid it. They have - in their own words - totally oversubscribed the service for the equipment they have at Lakeside. Basically, they have too many customers for the system they have. Their method of dealing with it is simple - they simply dump you offline when the network gets overloaded. This makes it almost impossible to stream anything and Skype calls get dropped as well. I know the technicians - who are happy to "fix" it for a fee - a fix that does not work, so don't call them (good lu
  9. We're currently with Telecable and Telmex in Chapala, Las Redes. Telecable offers higher speed but is more unreliable than Telmex. We require high speed and unlimited data. Are there any other internet provider options that anyone can recommend?
  10. Hi Listeros, I am moving to Lakeside and need really good internet.I am an online professor and it is not unusual to have 60 students online around the world for a simultaneous webinar. Are there areas of Lakeside where I should NOT consider renting at all as the service is so bad. I can be conducting these webinars any time of the day so that is not an issue. I think everyone is recommending Telmex as the provider. I used them in San Miguel de Allende and service was pretty good. Many thanks in advance Hoolia
  11. Hi Everyone I tried a search but didn't see anything so I'm posting a new question. We're new to the area and apparently like some of you, we're having a bit of a problem with the internet. The house we're renting uses Telmex with download speeds around 4.5 mbps and upload speeds of less than 1 mbps. This is OK for regular use and our Netflix is streaming fine but I'm still working and I need higher speeds for video conferencing. The property manager however, has advised this is the best available. We had this problem last year in Colima but I was able to use a cell-based intern
  12. Anyone interested in faster internet in Rancho del Oro / Villanova? For 300,000 pesos one time contribution split among the residents, Telmex says they'd do a Fiber/VDSL upgrade which would give much faster speeds, 10-50 mB, If we could find 100 residents interested in paying $3000 pesos one time each, with no change in Telmex monthly rate, we could get Rancho del Oro and Villa Nova upgraded. Message me if interested and I'll add you to the list...So far I have 11 people. Telmex mostly uses ADSL2+ service now whose speed drops with distance from the central office. This link explai
  13. I have heard that AT&T is offering a new internet + landline package that has higher speeds and free calling all over Mexico and to the USA & Canada. Has anyone tried it at this point and does it deliver higher speeds?
  14. Received the snippet below in an ad via my e-mail today supposedly because I subscribe to USTVNow. I know nothing of the company or their service or reliability, and just tossing it out for your research and diligence if Internet TV is of interest. The price seems quite reasonable. For just 10.99 per month you can access over 200 tv channels, every sports event in full hd, as well as complete coverage of your favourite tv shows on all of your streaming media devices. Using the coupon code "ustvnow" you can also enjoy more of a discount! Don't forget you will need to make a brand new account a
  15. For the past two weeks my Telecable in Ajijic centro has been intermittent. In the mornings it's fine, solid connection, full bandwidth. But as the day wears on the connection drops out completely for no apparent reason for anything from a few minutes to a half hour. Then it come back as if nothing is wrong. It seems to be worst in the evening. Web pages won't load, returning a message "DNS Probe Complete - No Internet". Modem and router all indicate connectivity, but that's not the case. Anyone else seeing this kind of issue?
  16. I know this topic exists but comments are old. I am moving to Ajijic Village in 2 weeks and am trying to decide between Telecable and Telmex. I don't care about TV as I have a streaming box, but to use it and my Vonage, I need good Internet speed. Telmex said that the don't provide more than 2-3 Gbts. Telecable promises 15. Do you know they charge more than in GDL? What do you recommend?

  18. I have been having very consistent internet speed in lower Riberas, but my upload speed has recently become so pathetic that it has essentially prohibited me from using VOIP. Is anyone else having these problems here?
  19. Telecable service has been getting worse and worse. We even filed a complaint today in PROFECO against them. Their local office has no manager and the send button doesnt work to send complaints on their web page. I went to pay by bill for service in Guadalajara in Zapopan and all Telecable signs were down and now they are Izzi Telecom. They have been laying new fiber optic cabling here in Guadalajara, hopefully things will improve soon in Chapala. The representative said the new owner is investing alot, looks like they have good prices. https://www.izzi.mx/home
  20. I have had terrible service over the last week or so with Telecable. Twice in the last week service was out for about 20 hours overnight. Internet and phone not working. Cable TV was working. 2 other times was getting .25Mbs transfer at speedtest.net for couple hours and no phone. Already two visits to office but that's a waste of time as they don't know anything. Call the listed number to report problem and keep getting disconnected. I live in Villa Nova and was wondering if the problem is my modem, cable connection to modem, or if large area is having problems. Today at about 1PM was not ab
