You’ll never be able to get around a country without a good and solid backing of an effective communication system network. You see, communication needs in the modern age have reached new heights and constant connectivity to the different parts of the world is a necessity few can refute. The Mexican government is well aware of this fact, and, even though it is a relatively small country, Mexican telecommunications is one of the largest network in Latin America. Teléfonos de México, also known as Telmex is the country’s major operator, and is responsible for welcoming you to Mexico.
Due to varying orography of the country, landline phones are much less popular than mobile phones, and the fact that there are as many as four times as much mobile phone users as compared to landline users proves this. Mobile telephony has the advantage of cheap infrastructure and deeper penetration in the remote mountainous areas. What this essentially means for you, as a traveler is that most likely, you are going to be connected to the world no matter what place you happen to be in. Whether you are camping in the Chiapas or enjoying the romantic lines of Mariachi in Jalisco, you are not cut off from the world.
Internet connectivity? No problemo. Mexicans rank 8 among the internet users in the world, which literally translates to anytime connectivity through broadband connectivity,wireless fidelity or mobile telephony. Telmex being the country’s dominant network operator, has left no stone unturned in giving out quality service to natives and tourists alike. Satélites Mexicanos, a private company takes care of all the satellite communication for Mexico, with the help of 120 earth stations and a microwave radio relay network that is extensive to say the least. Suffice to say, when you arrive to Mexico, whether it’s telling your loved ones about your co-ordinates or posting that valuable status update on facebook, you are never far away from connection.
