Apparently Chapala is in play now.

I know they are offering service to the prepaid clients first although it wouldn't surprise me if they start door knocking while they are stringing the lines through Ajijic and Chapala centros. It only makes sense to install as many as you can while your installation guy's are in the area.

Congratulations and my sincere thanks to Tom Kessler and friends who were the driving force behind this effort.

This is a major infrastructure upgrade for Lakeside. It moves the area into the 21st century in terms of technology and connectivity to the world. Real estate values I'm sure will benefit.

Three cheers for Tom and company.

Here is the e-mail... all questions answered: Please note that some of the direct links have not copied and pasted well but there is still enough contact info here to find out what you want to know.


Update on ilox project status as of June, 2018
 •ilox has received enough paid in subscribers to go ahead with the project at Lakeside!
•There are still over 300 who have pledged but have not paid yet, for many different reasons. We are following up with them.
•All subscribers who have prepaid by the end of July will get priority installation
•Ilox is now accepting signups in Chapala
•Ilox is in the process of opening an office in Ajijic
•Construction is projected to begin at the end of July 2018. Some services might begin as early as 4 months after that, but all services will be in place by 6 months.

General comments
•These plans include telephone service. You can keep your existing land line number. Telmex must release it to iLox if you request it.
•Telmex 10MG is $599/month. Ilox offers the same price for 50 MG. Same price, 5 times the signal with more stability.
•There are several TV channels included - many have dual language audio. You do not need the ilox TV package to watch TV. Once you have internet, you can access IP TV with a Firestick or Kodi and watch TV anywhere in the world.
•There is some talk that we will eventually lose our Shaw satellite signal as their new satellite will only point to Canada. Deadline is unknown.
•Here is the link to FAQs
•Here is a great article about fibre optics from Focus On Mexico

Gated Communities

Gated communities present an additional variable and cost.

ilox is unable to use the existing underground ducting due to liability and safety issues. Therefore, they need to install their own conduit. This can be installed above ground along walls, etc or digging a trench on both sides of each of your streets to service each home, depending on your individual by-laws and community tolerance for visual appearance. This cost is the responsibility of the community and will require your Homeowners Association to agree to these costs.

ilox has several reputable contractors who can visit your community and give you a quote on this installation. Please contact Lyle Zeigler below to arrange for a consult. Once you have an agreement, you can then proceed to subscribe to ilox for service.

NOTE: If you have already subscribed and paid, but your community decides not to install underground conduits, you will be reimbursed.  
 
For those of you who have indicated an interest in ilox fibre optics service, we are contacting you to find out where you are in the process. Our records indicate that some of you have filled in the on-line pledge form but have not sent us the documents required to complete your contracts. Perhaps you did not receive the ilox invitation letter to do this.
 
Below is a step-by-step guide to help you continue. Both Lake Chapala Real Estate and Ajijic Real Estate are available to help you through the process, answer questions, scan documents and/or contact ilox on your behalf with any concerns. Both offices have bilingual staff to assist you. Please stop by anytime during office hours – no appointment necessary. 1.Register on the pledge form here:   https://goo.gl/2kHdeE
2.Obtain legible photos or scans of official ID (Passport, DL, IFE, etc)  and Proof of address (CFE, Telmex Bill).   Determine if your community is serviced by CFE poles or underground service ducts. Send the scans and the service description to Ilox requesting your contracts to info@mail.tvrey.com.mx

3. Ilox will return to you two personalized contracts.  One is the service agreement, the other is the deposit agreement.  At the bottom of the deposit agreement is a Bancomer account and payment reference numbers. Here are English translations of the contracts.  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1a1kLQFjdpZ9g5F7HFmToxem6kNYFRSBb0g6MadvXYh4/edit
4.Go to Bancomer and pay the cashier against the account and reference numbers listed on your contract. They will give you a receipt.
5.Sign the contracts. You can ignore the clause requesting the Credit card statement and say yes or no to the “use email for communication” and “send other offers to you”.  Most people say yes to email and no to other offers.  Send scans of the signed contracts and your payment voucher back to Ilox via email to the same address above.
6.The signed originals also need to go back to Ilox. You can mail these or for convenience drop that at either Imail Shop in San Antonio or San Juan Cosala and Ilox will pickup.
7.When your payment is registered at Bancomer, Ilox will send you an acknowledgement email.
That's it! Please respond to this email to let us know if you are having trouble or are have decided not to subscribe so that we may update our records. If you have already signed, paid and are registered, then disregard this email, but be sure to pass it along to your friends!

I already signed up to Mike. Nelly at Ajijic Realty (opposite Tango)made it simple and painless and it was a short walk up to Bancomer to pay.

Well done.

So for us renters who use Telmex for proof of address they probably won't accept this new company as proof. Don't have electric bill in our name, but phone is.

If the utilities are not in your name you usually have to provide a signed copy of a rental agreement too.

Let's get it straight. Telmex is 389 for up to 10 meg not 599.00 which is good for up to 20 meg.
I will be watching.

Doesn't work that way Bob. Most places accept the landlords bill for  Telmex and CFE without a copy of the lease. I've been doing it for nearly 10 years.

It's the "up to" which is Telmex' devious way of hooking you. Many, many people are paying 389 and getting less than 2 mbps. Many, many people are paying 599 and possibly getting 10 mbps but no more. It's just plain false advertising.
In Riberas, I'm paying 599 and actually getting 20 mbps. It's not that I'm unhappy with my service... it's that when I have NO service, it takes too long to get it fixed. And, sometimes, it's not even Telmex that finds the problem and fixes it. Their customer service and maintenance of their lines and equipment is pathetic. It will most likely get worse and I just am not waiting for that to happen. Nor should anyone else. YMMV.

DaveP: That package, i.e.10 down costs only $389 pesos per month and offers long distance calls for about 50 countries for free with some limitations shown at the link below. The changes were made several years ago with recent changes limiting the time allowed per month, for long distance calls and calls to cell phones.

Yes, the button for all those packages that says "ver disponibilidad" (see availability) will be most enlightening. They tell you about incredible speeds and you get all excited and want to sign up...but... it's not available to YOU in YOUR location.

Ferret, I'm upgrading to the $499 package to again get unlimited phone calls.
Sadly where I live I'm lucky to get a solid 10 which I do, but should Telmex increase the speed available down here to keep up with the competition, I will be paid up and the techies say that the connection between the DSLAM card and my router is good and that it would handle faster speed should it ever be offered.

Well another idea is to keep Telmex at the minimum and then sign up for this service but nothing is going to happen until the end of the year, long time to wait.

I see IZZY is currently installing fiber optics infrastructure. Getting a jump on ILOX by the look of things. I'm wondering in ILOX is going to have second thoughts on this deal?

Talked to the workers yesterday. Appears it will be available in 2 to 3 months. I do hope Ilox does come in. Competition and choices are good.

IF Izzi gave a damn about any of us, they would have done this a while ago or at least given us an inkling that it was coming instead of treating us like mushrooms. Once bitten, twice shy. Izzi has already pulled a Telmex on me. Glad I'm going with the new guy on the block.

Living 1080 meters via telephone line from the Telmex office where much of the line is maybe 8 years old, I get very reliable Telmex service, to include internet. How do I know that I live 1080 meters from where my telephone line connects via a Dslam card is because that is what the Telmex computer at the Telmex office shows on the screen to the technician.

I have much less reliable service from Telecable, be it internet or TV.
