Telmex


To go along with the recent discussion of Telcel I would like to offer another example of Carlos Slim's - err, interesting, billing practices. Our Telmex bill is always the same except for the last two months. Included on our bill was a 39 peso change for "SEGURO INBURSA INTEGRAL". Fortunately we live near the main Telmex office and I refuse to go in to an Oxxo. I went to the pay kiosk and it showed that I owed my normal bill plus 39 pesos for "SEGURO INBURSA INTEGRAL". Now, I must explain, you never want to have to go in to the main office because you are going to have to wait in a long line. Nevertheless I waited to talk to a rep. I asked that "SEGURO INBURSA INTRGRAL" was. She said it was insurance. For what? I asked. For all kinds of things she replied. But I didn't ask for it I sez. Oh (surprise) you don't want it? No, I don't. OK, I'll take it off your bill. Gracias! You may want to check your bill.

I'd be OK with the increase...if the service was decent. But, my Telmex modem drops internet every 5 few minutes, so the increase monthly price feels a little insulting.

I don't even bother going to the Telmex office with issues or questions anymore. They just make up answers to get rid of you.

BTW, does anyone know if I can buy a good DSL modem on Amazon or somewhere and use it instead of the crappy little Telmex modem? I don't know enough about DSL to know if any DSL modem will work on a Telmex line.

Anybody using a US DSL modem, and did it make a difference?

My Telmex update- I pay my Telmex bills online, a couple of months ago an ad appeared about faster speed, I have received 1.7mb to 3mb on a good day since I installed wifi years ago, I have always been told 3mb was the maximum download since we are on copper lines still. I entered my number and it said my package was a 10mg max and for another $190 pesos more I could receive 20mb download speed.
I'm fed up with dish network prices and want to stream, I went to Telmex and again was told 3mb was my max, I showed them that Telmex website says I should be getting 10mb max after not accepting their answers and I said I wanted the manager to contact me, he emailed and then we spoke on the phone about my slow speed, he gave the same excuses as the others, I told him I read copper lines can get up to 20mbs and I only want 10mbs which is what I pay for.
Bottom line is after about 2 weeks of back and forth, running speed test daily, I now receive 10-10.3mbs consistently, my upload was still at .23-.28, after more talks I now have 1.3 upload, up and down both are very consistent now.

I am really sorry for this slight high-jack, BUT, does anyone know if when we travel north if Telmex will reach into Potrero Campground on the US side right at Tecate ?? We use the Telmex internet stick snd were hoping for internet when we stay there on our way to the blizzards beyond.

You might be getting Telmex and Telecel mixed up. Mex is a hard line phone and cel is the cell phone. At least I think so!

For your question, sorry, I don't know the answer.
