Does anyone know of an internet option I can use? I'm in Solimar and for the last year
the internet speed has averaged 1.7mb down and .3 up through Telmex. I have been without internet and phone for 4 days and will be at the Telmex office monday morning.
I'm more than willing to pay for a good internet provider if I can just find one!

I live there too and know of no other provider, unless you want to look for a satellite service.

I had them update my modem for free and it helped, but I am still around .6/5 mb up and down, which is a bit more than they promise for the equipment feeding our location.

Thanks I'll ask about an upgraded modem, it's a shame that Solimar has singled out to receive such poor internet service. I know some people up the street from Solimar who are receiving 100mb service.

Check with X-Pro...they were providing service in different parts of town. They have always done good by me.

What's X-pro? Doesn't it still have to go through the phone line?

My MIL has stayed at Solimar the last two years and I couldnt believe how slow the service was, even when we got her a new modem. I mean, you could barely get your email.

I think old wiring and maybe illegal taps into the phone lines are responsible. The bandwidth servicing that complex just isn't there, for some reason. Many posts about slow service on both boards in Solimar.

I have Megacable, internet and TV. Minimal problems the 4 years I have had it.  I have been very satisfied with it.  The main thing I watch is Netflix so internet is important. These days news and entertainment is almost all internet based.

I don’t think MegaCable is available to neighborhoods north of Beltrones Blvd, unless that has changed in the last couple of years.

I tried X pro but do to the signal being blocked doesn't make it possible to receive the internet signal. Hopefully in future he will have another transmitting tower

The Newest is The Modem from ATT. 10 up and 10 down for
350.00 pesos a Month. Modem 1000.00 pesos.

No Cables needed. You only Conect the Modem to an Electric Outlet.it Works like a Cel. Phone.

Look for an ATT provider in Guaymas.

If it's wireless, then it almost certainly uses cell towers. Be sure to check how much data you are allowed to use and what it will cost if you go over. Wireless routers that basically create a Hotspot have been around for a while.

Small print says unlimited data but once you hit 150 GB, they slow the speed to 2MB from the 10. Would this be sufficient for someone streaming a lot of movies?

If you are going to use up to 150 GB per month and watch streaming video - you need to be aware of and control the quality level.  This differs by provider.


YouTube:
480p playback of standard 30 frames per second (FPS) content uses approximately 264MB per hour, 720p (HD) videos use roughly 870MB per hour, and 1080p (Full HD) video playback uses around 1.65GB an hour.


Amazon Prime:
approximately 900MB per hour for SD playback, roughly 2GB per hour for HD playback, and around 5.8GB per hour of UHD content.



NetFlix:
    300MB per hour on the lowest video quality700MB per hour for SD video quality3GB per hour for HD video quality7GB per hour for UHD (4K) video quality
