Telmex 30 MB vs. 150 MB internet service


Recommended Posts

I currently get 30 MB download during the daytime with my Telmex service, but many evenings it drops to 6 to 7 MB download, about 1/5 the speed. Telmex is advertising 150 MB download in my area and I’m considering it. But I first want to determine if the reduction in download speed in the evenings will be:

1.    Proportional to the service I have, that is paying for 150 MB download might result in approximately 1/5 the speed in the evenings (about 30 MB)?

2.    Or regardless of the service I pay for (30 MB vs. 150 MB), my speeds will be 6-7 MB download in the evenings?

Thanks.

Per the staff in the Ajijic office, they cannot provide any of us any more than the basic package offers.

This may not help and if not I apologize but have you noticed that the number of negative posts about ILOX have dropped off the radar?

I have the 300mb package and speed tests run at all times of the day are very close to that number. Also, in the past there were complaints of ILOX throttling download speeds but that too seems to have been lifted. I've seen downloads fly by at close to 40mb/sec which translates to a HD TV show completing in less than one minute. With Telmex (non-fiber), the same task would take close to an hour.

Just an observation.

My  300 service  ILOX in  SE SAT changed a few weeks ago and it is much more steady.  Also upload is 350 and download is 80.  Before it was all over the place. 

Something has changed.   Also I can make phone calls without dropping out and such.

Really! iLox has fixed their VOIP issues.

You need fiber optic to get the good speeds, I have one account and get 200mbps and the other 60mbps, without fiber optic you get crappy speeds.

I forget....Is the Telmex fiber (say in Villa Nova) really fiber to the casa modem or is it fiber to the outside somewhere and the original copper into the casa?

I have had Telmex fiber for some time (to the house, not the local pole). I'm paying 599 for 150 down, and consistently get 200 down and 100 up.

Now that's a rarity with Telmex - getting more than one pays for. Thanks for your response.

We just cancelled our Ilox fibre optic and have Telmex 20MB fibre optice (the highest they have in Villa Nova).  It is working fine and at much less cost.  Time will tell.

Much less cost?  Ilox offers 60mbps at $483.  How much cheaper is it?
