My wife and I (I'm using her account) are about to move to Ajijic (look forward to meeting you all in person!), and are wondering about internet access there. We currently have aDSL here in the SF Bay Area, and we run mail, web and DNS servers so need a static IP address.
Looking at telmex's prodigy info, I see this is available, athough with limited options - several speeds with 3 addresses (we only need 1), and is not cheap (around 1500 pesos/month, about double the cost here). Are there any other options for DSL? Can I get a static IP address with Wireless access?
Secondly, our house in Ajijic was rented, and the tenant had Prodigy Infinitum, with "Acceso Inifitum 1000" which I gather is some kind of speed-up mechanism - anyone know what this is? The rental agency said it's $350 pesos for the Prodigy Infitum (which I think is the 250Mb aDSL, ie not that fast!), and $999 pesos/month for the Acceso 1000.
I vaguely remember hearing that Mexico was about to open up the communications market to competition.
thanks in advance
