Internet and Cable TV

We are within 2-3 weeks of moving into our house!!!!!!!!
We need internet. Good internet. Although we haven't had TV for 5+ years, we think it's probably a necessary thing for our rental apartment, and will probably have it on one of our floors, too. No telling when/if we'll buy a television.

Last year, we were told the best choices were TelMex for internet, with a land line included, that we don't need or want, and SKY for the least expensive, most English channels.

Before we go spend a day getting these things arranged, does anyone have any better suggestions? We sure appreciate it.

I don't know if cable TV is available where you live, but it beats any dish service, especially when it rains. They recently upgraded to digital TV but of course you have to have their converter box, free for the first TV but 95 pesos a month for each additional TV. The quality is pretty good. Plenty of bilingual (you can switch between languages) and English channels.

And if you want even more channels your internet connection offers various possibilities besides Netflix, Izzi, Google Play and similar. My friend Javier of Siditel (see my Services page) can hook you up with some interesting packages that rival anything satellite and cable currently offer that include live TV as well as TV programs and movies on demand.

The most reliable phone and internet service by far is Telmex, though depending where you live and how much internet you need, Telcel's internet 4G is the fastest if it works in your area. There are still a lot of areas that 3G and 4G don't quite or just barely reach, so it isn't as fast in those places. When I need to transfer large files I usually switch my connection to Telcel because it so much faster.

Hope this helps! Saludos.
