Default Tequisquiapan important info needed

Hola;

I have searched the site and cannot find the answer to the burning question: what kind of internet speed can you get in Tequisquiapan?

Also, the time-and-time-again question: can I find a good groomer for a standard poodle in Tequisquiapan?

Please honor me with your wisdom.....

You probably will not get a straight answer because there isn t one.
First go to Telmex and ask them.. not what the general policy is but what is availbale.

I live in Ajijic where Telmex was selling the different plans and speeds they have nationwhide and then I quickly fiound out that I was not getting the speed promised and they told me that no matter what the plan was , I could not get over 2MGB... Then after a fiber cable company started taking money for their future plan to install optic fiber , Telmex started upgrading the system so now some areas get 5 some 10 some more , some have fiber cable or will have it and some do not. I was told that I lived far from the equipment so I would not get any upgrade.. now 6 months later I was told I would get fiber in October... and on and on..
In Chiapas I live in Centro.. I have telmex wifi in one room and telcel in the other.. different part of the house may have whatsapp or not, telcel or not..then I am told t is because of the adobe..

If it is really important to you check with the neighbors of the house you are interested in and you may get an answer , that may change next year.. Welcome to Mexico.
I large cities I would think it is different but in small cities and villages with a non traditional population base you better check carefully and not go by one answer for the whole town or area. My 2 cents answer to your question

For the grooming , many times vets are connected with groomers so check the vets.

Go to Senor Google with the name of the town and "pet grooming". Lots of leads arrive.

I currently live in La Floresta in Ajijic but am moving as I sold the house quickly. I get a solid 14 mpbs from Telmex now but they just put the fiber boxes on the poles here in La Floresta and are going to off packages up to 70 mbps. My current package at $499 pesos would change to 30 mbps. I was hoping since Tequisquiapan had larger hotels, lines would already be in the area. Guess it is the same there as here.

My current groomer is with my vet and he has such a talent. I was hoping someone with a harder to groom dog could give me a clue if there was someone with a skill set to do a Standard Poodle.

Thank you for your reply.

I think we all know how to google. Google however does not tell me if anyone knows if there is a groomer who has the skill set to groom a Standard Poodle. My question was specific to people who live there regarding a specific thing.

If by some chance when you do a Google search, you can find the exact answer to "is there a groomer in Tequisquiapan who can groom a STANDARD POODLE, you are indeed much smarter than I and I deserve your uncharitable reply.

I'm such a silly little dreamer. And also a fool. I want culture, quaintness, and charm but then I want it with internet and next day Amazon delivery. I guess I should see if Disneyland is renting a room out in the Castle.

After my third year in Ajijic I bought a house in Chiapas for the same reasons but there you find out really quickly that many things are missing, less than 15 years ago but still. plenty especially when it comes to the healthcare situation so I live in 2 places..

This is a general comment and not directed at anyone in particular.

Mexico is different than the US or Canada. In my opinion, the most successful way to move to Mexico is with an open mind and a willingness to learn and enjoy what is available and get used to living without those things that are not available.

If you have one criteria that is absolutely necessary, it might be best to visit and see how that thing/service compares to what you expect. Even if someone tells you on this forum, that it is available, you might find it is not what you expect or need.

This is not unique to Mexico. It is true in every country. Even moving across the US, you might find that things are not like what you are used to. That is part of the charm of moving in my opinion.

oh so true and the least foreigners they are and the poorer it is and the less you will be able to fibut that is the nd things you are amiliar with in Europe or the US..
I sometimes get annoyed..here I am in San Cristobal where there are quite a few Italians and many Italian restaurants and I could not find anchovies or black olives to make a southern Franch dish I felt like maki.. I was pretty annoyed but that s the way it is, you have to be flexible..
Havint to go from one part of the house to use the cell or the wifi or whatever is also another thing that annoys the heck out of me, I can see it if I lived in the middle of nowhere, but in the center of a city of 150 000 people??
