tkessler Posted June 30, 2016 Report Share Posted June 30, 2016 Anyone interested in faster internet in Rancho del Oro / Villanova? For 300,000 pesos one time contribution split among the residents, Telmex says they'd do a Fiber/VDSL upgrade which would give much faster speeds, 10-50 mB, If we could find 100 residents interested in paying $3000 pesos one time each, with no change in Telmex monthly rate, we could get Rancho del Oro and Villa Nova upgraded. Message me if interested and I'll add you to the list...So far I have 11 people. Telmex mostly uses ADSL2+ service now whose speed drops with distance from the central office. This link explains. http://www.increasebroadbandspeed.co.uk/2012/graph-ADSL-speed-versus-distance . Your router stats will also tell you the maximum distance attainable...For those of us in Rancho del Oro / Villa Nova, we're getting about 5/6Mpbs down, which is the max of about 3km, but we're really only 2km...With good cable, should be able to get 10 or more. So either the cable is lossy and old, or Telmex is throttling it back. When the distance gets too far, Telmex runs fiber to a neighborhood box and high speed VDSL from there. VDSL works best up to about 1km. This is why places like Riberas and Raquet Club have faster service than places like Rancho del Oro on the distance limit. Rancho del Oro / Villa Nova are not on the list to be upgraded anytime soon, because other areas are priority.
