Registering for Internet and Phone with Telmex

Whether you have just bought a new home or moved into a new rental property, one of the first things you will need to do is setup your internet and telephone service.

Few of us can survive long without internet, and with the following steps you will be connected again in no time at all.

Step 1:  Gather your documents
You will need to have to hand your passport, or FM2/3 as well as a photocopy of this document.
In addition to this you will need the original and a copy of your electricity bill.  It doesn't need to be in your name, it is required to validate the address of your property.

Step 2: Choose an internet and telephone package
There are three basic packages to choose from for a residential customer.  Each of these packages also has an optional speed upgrade varying in price and power depending on the base package.

For most normal use households the basic package of 3Mbps (Mega Bytes per Second), and 100 local and 100 national minutes is perfectly acceptable.  If you just want a little extra internet speed then the basic package plus $99 pesos a month gets you a 5Mbps connection plus the basic call plan.

Step 3: Visit TelMex on Nicolas Bravo
After you have decided on your package you simply need to make a trip to TelMex and set up your connection.

They will give you the internet modem immediately and then they will take your contact details so that an engineer can visit your home to install it.

Even if you know what you are doing their engineer needs to make the trip so that he can activate the line.  This should take place within a few days, however don't be surprised if you have to wait a week.

  1. Hi Jeffrey,

    They do have a 10mb plan.

    It is priced at $999 pesos per month.

    You can actually get it cheaper if you register for a 5mb Plan and then add an additional 5mb to the internet, meaning your total bill would be $599+$199.

    Thank you for your question.
