When we moved to Nicaragua ten years ago, we were most concerned about having internet in our home to keep in contact with our families. We were able to get a cell phone that would connect to our laptops (one at a time) and provide internet to email our friends. A year an a half later, we got super fast cable internet in our homes.
Imagine our surprise when we moved to Mexico and found that internet was unavailable for us! So, three years ago we went to the phone company and petitioned internet for our home, but they said the network in town is "full" and we were put on a waiting list. We are still waiting.
I cannot believe that in a town of more than 10,000 people we cannot get internet. There are three companies in Monterrey and none of them come out here. There is one company that offers it through an antenna, but their switch is "full" as well.
