Nuevo Laredo - Post Report Question and Answers

Is high-speed home Internet access available? How long does it typically take to install it after arrival?

Internet was set up and turned on upon arrival, which was much appreciated. Outages were common. We were without internet for over two weeks at one point, after a storm. We finally just installed a second service provider in our home, so that we had insurance. It was an extra $20/mo US, and just worth the extra. From that point on we always had internet, but we did frequently have to swap to the backup when it service with the primary was out. - Dec 2022

Internet service is mediocre -- we can't stream on two devices at once, for instance, and sometimes the service really slows down (especially on weekends). Some people have two providers so they can switch to the other when one is giving them trouble. Installation should be pretty quick, just a few days. - Jun 2018
