Telcel PC card

Can't Post | Private Reply
I'm wanting to get information on using a plug in PC card to access the internet while on the road. We'll be traveling through a large portion of Mexico, all the way from Nogales, down to San Carlos, Puerto Vallarta and into Mexico City. Do they work throughout the states/ or do you need to buy in a specific state (Nayarit or Jalisco)? Are they slow or fast? Any info would be most appreciated!

I have not used a PC card of any variety, here or anywhere, however, I have researched the subject. My findings were that Iusacel, another Mexican provider of PC cards and cellular service, has been in the business longer than Telcel, and they use a different technology called cdma, which affords a faster internet connection speed. The question is, what is their coverage area. I know that they do not cover Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca. Here in Guanajuato however, Iusacel phones work fine in the Sierra de Santa Rosa, with no signal whatsoever on a Telcel cell phone. The name of Iusacel's cellular internet service is called "Iusacel Bam". (Bam = banda ancha movil) The subject can be googled, but it is in Spanish.

You are not having much luck. Try http://www.yolisto.com/ This is a Yucatan forum site which seems to have quite a few people from the Gulf Coast of the Yucatan. Some of these people use the Telcel 3G as their internet connection so they would probably help you. It is a free site so check it out.

Sounds like Iusasel is worth looking into. I did Google their service and people seem pleased with it. Their coverage is all over the US too! I'll check with other forums too. Thanks!
