Internet Service

by Derricklaker

What are my options, if you know, for internet service during my stay in Queretaro, Mexico? I have a laptop with a lan line and high speed connection capabilities. Also, how much is it to have a phone line put into a home and what are the monthly service charges. Thank you for any help that you can give me.

There's no two ways about it, the only phone company in central Mexico is Telmex.

Activating a phone line (wiring already installed) runs for about $200ºº, and the monthly rent is $25ºº. All figures are in US dollars.

Internet may be a different ballgame, there may be other ISPs that use cable, but as an example, here are Telmex rates for Broadband (ADSL):

256K connection - around $35ºº a month.
512K connection - around $60ºº a month.
1Mb connection - around $100ºº a month.
And finally:
2 MB connection - around $460ºº a month.

If you commit to 24 months of service, instalation kit for ground Internet is free, wireless instalation kit is $60ºº.
If you don't commit to 24 months of service, both instalation kits run for $150ºº.

There is support for both PC and Mac. For Mac System 9 and under, you have to connect via an application called MacPoet.

I'd refer you to their website, but it is horribly constructed, jam-packed with pop-ups, and English instructions are pathetic. Better to call them at their hotline, dialed from Mexico as follows:
01 (800) 123 2222.

If you want to feel some frustration, here it is: www.telmex.com.mx

As an alternate plan, you can always work from an Internet Café, they are as common in Mexico as pubs are in England, and hourly rates can be as low as $1.50, no higher than $3ºº.

Good luck.

I'm reading my post, and there are double question marks where tiny zeros (for cents) should be, and a single question mark where the letter "e" is accented in the word "Cafe".

Good information.

Just to add. Internet by phone line could be a cheaper option and will run for US$20.00 a month at a 56K connection.

Sanborn's cafe (there are 3 available in Queretaro and more than 400 around the country) offer wireless internet connection.

Enjoy.

There are prepaid internet cards from Todito.com, Esmas.com and Terra Mexico, you pay only $100.00 pesos per card, and use it the way you want. The cards are sold in all Oxxo Stores

By the way, in Querétaro there are more telephone companies that offer internet, like Telmex (prodigy), Axtel, Maxcom, and AT&T those had local phone services and data too.

So you can choose between 4 local telephone companies or other ISP

Travel Tips for Querétaro

Staying with Mexican Families

by pauly_queretaro

As a former exchange student in Queretaro I would like to advise young men of the following: Even though you may be used to bringing home a girl from the bar in the US DOES NOT MEAN IT IS OK IN MEXICO!!
I know first hand that this is true because I was kicked out of my first Host Family's home for doing just this. Many young men are used to meeting women at a bar and , well, taking them home to get to know them a little better :)
Well, this is just not done in Mexico, especially if you are living with a family as an exchange student or something similar. However if you are living on your own, more power to ya!

Santa Clara Church

by JessieLang

The giant Santa Clara church, just a block from Jardín Guerrero, has a miniature plaza in front of it—a paved area with a few more trees trimmed into square shapes, some benches, and an elaborate marble fountain. The interior of the church is supposed to be incredible (no square inch left undecorated) but the doors were locked unless a service was starting, and I didn’t get in. It was built in 1633.

The City - Queretaro

by skyhopper

Queretaro is a vibrant city. With a wealth of splenid colonial architecture, the city comes alive with authentic cultural entertainment in virtually every plaza. It is extremely safe and clean and filled with welcoming Mexican hosts. Worth a stop in any Mexico itinerary.
