Living in the Stix has some drawbacks ... probably more in Mexico than the US or Canada. Living as close to Melaque as we do you would think a landline telephone would be considered a necessity and a safety issue. But no .... Telmex only goes where it can make money. It wasn't long ago in some areas where they did have service you had to wait for a phone line or people would sell their service (how I don't know). Even with the phone lines you need the extra hardware for Internet so no time soon here.
In the void someone in Jaluco started a service of line of sight broadband and that was gong to be an option for me for awhile. A store owner on the Plaza knew who ran the service but thought I should not join because shared bandwidth would affect her service. One neighbor who had the service just moved to Melaque and the mechanic took down his pole because it made a perfect lightning rod and it fried his computer. So I guess the store owner will have all the bandwidth because I'm sticking with my CEL modem.
