Update:: Went to Telcel in the plaza today, noontime.

Rep said the entire SAT area and CV is out. The problem is the tower serving this area, it is non-functioning.  They have a team working on it and it should be cleared by tomorrow (translation: possibly this Friday, probably next week...maybe)

Finally I am able to translate!.

I've been incommunicado for a week and a half - Telecable landline went down first and now the cell won't work either. What are people supposed to do in an emergency?  How many phones do we have to have? I guess we could send smoke signals but would probably burn down whatever trees are left...  If the internet goes too, my business is going to tank!

It is not an emergency; just an inconvenience. But it may make some think about what they will do in a true emergency, a really big one, like a major power grid failure, thousand year storm, meteor impact, war, or whatever other scenario you can imagine.   There would be no power, no water, no gasoline, no groceries, no communication, and no information.  Good question: "What are people supposed to do?" 

I don't think there is an answer in today's dependent society.  Now, where did I leave that old Bic lighter? I need to cook something, or someone.

It sure as hell is an emergency when you live alone and can't get help if needed.

If only those medical devices were available here but they too depend on wireless communication availability. You're screwed.

A friend was told via TelCel at the big office that a tower has been vandalized, on more than one occasion. No other information.

It's spotty. I listen to music in my car delivered by cell phone, and as I drive to my appointments, it stops and starts, stops and starts. So I know when I'm in a dead zone.

Telcel, Telmex... doesn't matter. They NEVER give you credit for a loss of service that is THEIR fault. I've been in this house for exactly three years.... and have been without service for a total of three months. They could care less.

I posted elsewhere--the SAT tower 's antennae was stolen.  Talked to the gentleman at TelCel last week, he said a new one has been ordered and will be here and installed in 2 weeks, mas o menos.  I am thinking, mas.

Still not available, cell phone or modem. Looks like that antenna is being shipped from China on a slow boat...
