Some readers have asked questions about the Telcel 3G card that I will attempt to answer. It is a prepaid system with no service contract. They took no credit card information. I use it until my prepaid 30 day period is up or until I use up my 3 GB, whichever comes first. I then simply buy more time at a Telcel kiosk in a mall or at any OXXO store. There is no problem turning it off for the summer. I just buy some time when we get back to Mexico.
I get Internet wherever I have cell service and Telcel has very good coverage!
I agree that the 3 GB should be enough as long as I stay off YouTube and Limewire. I know Skype works with it but I will have to see how much bandwidth it uses. I will not use the video feature on Skype.
Anyway, so far, so good. I installed the software (in English!) on both computers and it is working great!
Note: Dave from Guadalajara tells me that I still have a very slow 125 KB service if I use up my 3 GB before the month is up.
