Yes but it is limited to certain portions of the city. The service area of Axtel, the only fiber optic option is expanding. Other providers are TelMex and CableVision. - Aug 2015


Yes. Axtel is what I went with, they were about US$80 a month, and it's fiber optic. - Mar 2014


Yes. I pay about USD 50/month. - Oct 2012


Yes, but it's not as fast as it claims to be. The DSL is ridiculously slow - it's best to go with Cablevision instead. - Oct 2010


High-speed is available and costs around $50 a month. We haven't had any issues with the cable going out, except during the hurricane. We have the MagicJack for our US number, and it has worked almost perfectly with our internet service. - Jul 2010


High speed internet is available from Intercable and from TelMex. TelMex DSL service is approx US$35 a month for 1 Mb down, 128k up. That's enough to run VOIP most of the time. Latency time is good and the bandwidth hasn't been oversold. If you want faster DSL, TelMex sells a top-of-the-line package for about US$100 a month that has unlimited local and national calls, voice mail, and all the features. With that package high speed internet is included, and the speed is doubled. We make a lot of local calls, and this was actually a cheaper option for us. - Jan 2008


Its available but not as fast as the U.S. - Jan 2008
