Computers and Computing in Puerto Penasco Mexico (Rocky Point)
Computing in Penasco - and Mexico in general - has historically been a tricky thing, but the current state of connectivity in Penasco is pretty good. Dialup access, for example, is possible through a number of national providers (see below) as well as the big players like Prodigy, AOL.
For the casual tourist, getting a quick email fix is a matter of popping into a local walk in Internet provider and paying a quick time-based fee. 99% of the larger hotels have 'business centers' where you can check your email, and there are a number of small cyber cafe's around town as well.
For more residents, pretty much the only game in town is Telmex DSL. They've made good inroads all over town, so there's DSL-fed WiFi popping up all over the place, so it isn't impossible to 'borrow' somebody's access point if you get lucky.
Just to review:
Cable - unknown, I assume this is still not available.
DSL - all over the place - in town. Past Las Conchas, you're kind of on your own. Telmex is the only game in town, but their service is reported as pretty reliable and it's all over the place, far as I can tell.
Wireless - is available in a few select spots! See Max's Cafe across from Plaza Las Glorias, and our notes below. Wireless is also available now in many of the resorts on Sandy Beach. Please ask when booking your resort or hotel if wireless internect connection is available. Some hotels also have internet connection for a fee!
Satellite - I've talked to a few people using StarBand/DirectWay satellite systems in their RV's with no problems - save for its environmental and speed limitations.
3G/Edge/Data-over-cellular - Nobody I've talked to has reported getting their 3G/EDGE, etc. gear working in Penasco, probably because the cellular network in Penasco isn't configured for it. As the network improves, I maybe this option will become available, but who knows.
If you know if any other high speed internet options in Penasco, please let me know!
