Joco, I get "Your IP was blocked by the server firewall." Do they have a public-facing web site, or phone number?

Thanks.

It must be your system blocking it.

I'm not the server.

Thanks for the phone number.

Do they come further east than Joco?  I hope you post further as to it's reliability.  Have they given you a time-frame as to when it will be installed?

I know a guy in El Chante that got it recently. So far so good.

Installation is FREE....time frame is 3-7 days and installation is clean and professional. They do not offer a telephone but the internet has been very reliable.

I signed up last month, in Las Fuentes...so far so good! My internet speed is five times what it was with TelMex, for the same price. Currently they have a special promotion..pay in  advance, get twelve months for the price of nine

Wonderful! May I ask, what net speed is consistently achieved?

One person on another board said she constantly gets 100MB up and down.  The highest package offered is 50MB so she is getting more than she paid for. Another is having problems getting the speed he ordered but it is still faster than Telmex. He said the company is excellent at responding and trying to fix problems. I won't have mine installed for a few days.

Joco,

Thanks - it's great that some local institution has a good reputation, so far...  With telecom services (though not so much fiber), location can be crucial - if Las Fuentes had good net service a couple of years ago, I might have bought there.

I definitely don't get 100 up and down. The customer who gets that works online and is paying for the highest priced package.

However, I pay for the lowest cost package, and consistently get 30-plus up and down. Just to compare, my final day with TelMex, I was getting 5.14 up and  point 68 down. I am VERY happy with  UNET so far. My Amazon Firestick now works smoothly, no buffering at all.

What is the monthly or yearly fee?

No, not available in San Juan, they cover Joco and come out as far as Las Fuentes.

Thanks!  I’m not completely up to speed on their delivery method but my understanding is it’s equivalent to “wireless fiber” which would require transmitters within reasonable proximity to the point of service.  Wonder is a sufficient number of customers would justify the capital upgrade needed to establish service in SJC. Will inquire with them tomorrow and post their reply.

It's fiber optic until the modem then it can be wired or wireless to your computer.

I have friends who live in the development just east of Las Fuentes called Rancho Alegre. Unet won't go in there; iLox doesn't go that far; Telmex sucks and so does Telcel. They are, however, in a beautiful location with a spectacular view. ;)

I read from another poster that his ILOX telephone is not as good as his Telmex phone.

That's an understatement. ilox phone is unreliable and basically useless.

My Telmex line has been very reliable since I first got it in 1997. I said is was :) Then last Thursday night an old and abandoned telephone pole broke about ten feet from the top and toppled over until it was stopped by the telephone and the IZZI cable lines. The lines held up the broken end of the pole, but sadly both my Telmex and cable internet went down. I am now using my iPhone as a hot spot and have been doing so since Friday morning
