High Speed Internet
I am moving to Guanajuato City soon! I am going to rent for a year or so and learn the area. I am curious to know if you can get Hi Speed Internet, in certain parts of town only? New Developments? I want to choose a place that has it, as well as being a nice home. IF I can have it both ways! lol. Any suggestions? Is Fiber available anywhere?

Any answers will be most appreciated! Thank you in advance!

RE: High Speed Internet
I have fiber here in Guanajuato through Megacable. I don't know if they have fiber citywide, but they do here in the La Presa area. There are other companies and options hear, but I don't know what services they provide. Maybe someone else can speak for the other providers here.

RE: High Speed Internet
Thank you so much Blackpool for that information. I'll just get with Megacable and find out where they have fiber. Then find a nice home in the area! LOL!

RE: High Speed Internet
Welcome.
Mexico has moved recently to significantly de-regulate telecommunication services thus opening competition and fostering new services. This has given rise to Izzy, Blue-to-Go, Blim and other alternatives that are now open in CDMX, GDL and Monterey. Some of These will be coming into our GTO market in future. This has also finally motivated Telmex to improve pricing and service quality. They are now stringing fiber in many areas of town. As mentioned Megacable arrived a year ago with total fiber network in much of city.
Bottom line, more choice so evaluate what/when as you choose a place to land.

Telmex has had fiber-optic for quite a while now. Here in the Presa area, we've had it for more than four years, and it works great. I don't know how extensive the coverage is in other parts of the city.

In choosing an internet provider, you might want to consider what else is included in the package. Our mid-priced Telmex package, at 599 pesos a month, includes free long-distance telephone service to virtually the entire world (Cuba and a couple of other countries are excepted). I don't know what Megacable offers.

Jer or Flash, what ever your name is

The main thing to ask is the REAL SPEED. Upload and Download. Telmex and Megacable in gto are a joke and rip neofites off because most consumers dont know about REAL SPEED. They go for the trap of the MEGAS advertisement.

We have used a private company that has been in Mexico for many years way before Megacable, they give us right now on a Portable modem in our home, rv or vehicle the following speeds. You are basically flying!

15-20 mbps download
20-25 mbps upload

Just so you know if you want to watch any 720 HD video you need minimum 5 megabytes download. To watch Netflix 1080 HD you need 10 mbps download and for 4K or more you need 20 mbps.

Also dont make a contract, best deal is this private company that gives you portable internet service and you can pick up the gear at fed ex. No install BS or waiting around.

RE: High Speed Internet
I consistently get 50 mbps download with Megacable. And 20 on the upload. I've measured and tested it. Much better service than I had in the US.
