Both already spoken for2 wireless Telcel wireless modems free to anyone that can use them


Recommended Posts

I have 2 wireless Telcel modems or routers....whatever they are called that I used for internet prior to my Total Play installation. They work anywhere there is reasonable cell reception but dont get very fast internet. They do both work however and I was able to stream (most of the time) with one or the other. Service with Telcel monthly is $399 pesos for 8 GB per month  or with Sandra at a small Telcel kiosk near El Torritos for $500 pesos for "supposedly" unlimited service. I had the two and paid for both services and at least I usually had internet. Better than nothing but not nearly as good as Total Play. Each cost just over $1000 pesos so if you live in an area that does not get Total Play or anything else and do have decent cell service they would at a minimum connect you to the internet. Free to anyone that can use them:-)

Still would like to know how two cellular modems can have one working and one not, at the same time. For example, why would I want two iLox feeds into my house? If one goes down, the other goes down. Since cellular Internet service is provided by the same tower at a single location, I don't see how it's possible. But I stand to be corrected.

One of them I purchased from the main Telcel office near Walmart and it has a set amount of data for $399 pesos per month. The other I purchased over 2 year ago from Sandra in a "Telcel" kiosk near the Wednesday tianguis in Ajijic, and although she says it is unlimited data with Telcel for $500 pesos per month, when I went to Telcel to pay for a month they said it is not Telcel at all! They had no idea whose service it was and really it does not work all the time or with unlimited data😕 So sometimes the one I bought from Sandra did not work (I had to call her every few days and tell her I did not have service and she would always say....."I take care of it for you" and within an hour or sometimes not for a whole day or 2, I would not have any service) and that is why I bought the one from Telcel. The one from Telcel definitely did not have enough data to stream like an hour of TV per night for a month and still have internet to check your email so predominantly I used it because it was reasonably dependable until it was out of its 8GB of data. When it was out of data and no longer worked for the month (and I was unable to get more data from Telcel for love nor money until a certain date every month) I used the one from Sandra until I was allowed to pay for more data with Telcel. I just did not want to be without internet because stuff happens and you need the web for many different things. Basically it was a matter of a set amount of data and I wanted more so I had 2 accounts so to speak to make that possible. 

Hope that satisfies your curiosity!
