backup for Telmex and Telcel?

We have Telmex fiber in our home and my current SIM is Telcel. I noticed over the past couple days when Lester knocked out the internet a few times, both Telmex and Telcel both went down simultaneously. Realizing they are the same company and likely infrastructure, this makes sense.

Is there an alternative to Telcel that might not go down when Telmex does? I also have a Google Fi SIM that kept working when they went down, but much slower. So it seems there are other cellular networks that are independent of the Telmex/Telcel infrastructure that could be a backup?

I can't count on Google Fi as my backup because eventually they will figure out I don't live in the US anymore and cut off my international data. And I appreciate these outages have been short, but since my livelihood depends on connectivity, I need to explore all reasonable backups available. Thanks!
