If you have the Telcel modem, check your bill. I was subscribed to a service I did not even know about. Very sneaky.

Can you sign up for the internet pkg and get a modem at the mall office?
How much cash is needed to get it started?
TIA

You should weigh the cost of a Telcel modem against what it would save you in terms of how much internet you use. If you use a lot, stream things, etc, it's worthwhile, because you get unlimited for a set amount.
If you don't use it a lot or do things which suck a lot of data, you can just use your phone as a hot spot, if it has that feature. Then you purchase a pay-as-you-go package internet amigo package, just like you'd buy sin limites package.
I do both- I buy the internet package for 300 pesos that gives me 5 GBs and the 150 peso sin limites, which gives me the unlimited calls and texts plus another 2 GBs. So for 450 pesos I get 7 GB and just use my phone to tether, never bought a Telcel modem.

Using the hotspot on your phone is a wonderful invention IF you get strong coverage in your house. I don't. So now, I'm looking into buying the antenna to park on my outside wall with direct line of sight at the tower with a cable that will bring it into my house attached to an extender at the end of it. Sigh.

Gosh it was years ago when I last heard about doing this. Sure hope the signal strength outside is strong enough :)

My cell phone piggy backs on my Telmex wifi INSIDE the house. If Telmex is out OR if the electricity is out, there is only 1 bar of service (if that). Outside in the corner of my courtyard, with line of sight to the tower, it is 4 bars.
Try using a hotspot with 1 bar of service... worse than dial up.

Yes, I neglected to mention that I do get a strong cell signal most of the time. No phone lines at all out to my place, which is why I can't use Telmex or any other internet which requires phone lines. Good luck with your antenna.

One thing I do using the pay-as-you-go internet package that you might want to be aware of, is to go into my computer settings and set it on "Metered Connection". That will keep apps and Windows, etc, from automatically updating in the background, sucking up your limited data.
