Satellite Internet Mexico:
Satellite connection for internet cafés
and business in Mexico and Central America
Internet vía Satélite
El hecho de que no exista el servicio DSL o cable-modem en tu
localidad no significa que las conexiones de alta velocidad estén
fuera de tu alcance. Con Internet vía Satélite, el cielo es tu
límite. Literalmente. Si tienes una PC y una vista limpia y sin
obstrucciones al sur del cielo, puedes tener una conexión a
Internet de alta velocidad.
Satellite Internet Mexico - Price:
2-Way Satellite systems in Canada and the US are around $650 US
including installation with a basic monthly fee of around $69 US.
Systems in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean are higher in
cost -- usually around $2000 US after shipping, duties, license, and
installation. Residential customers outside of Canada and the US
will receive the Business Edition of Direcway which is faster, has
higher download limits, and usually points to a different satellite
than North American residential clients. The Basic Business Edition
costs $99 US per month.
Do I need a license?
According to Industry Canada, FCC, and most other countries, you do
require some type of license since you are operating a 2-way
microwave radio antenna. The license usually costs around $50-100US
a year. Some countries, like Belize, require a telecommunications
license before allowing you to pass your dish through Customs.
How easy is it to import a 2-way Satellite system into Mexico?
Most Central American countries like Mexico, Belize, and Honduras
have restrictions on importing satellite internet. Since most US
companies are not authorized by Hughes to sell the service outside
the US, many countries require that you buy your dish from their
list of authorized suppliers -- or they won't let them in through
Customs. License fees and import duty is required. It is sometimes
possible to 'sneak' them through Customs and avoid those costs, but
they will not think twice about seizing the dish if they catch you
-- or even think they have caught you. There is significant
corruption and incompetence in governments 'south of the border' and
even while trying to do everything by the book, there always seem to
be unexpected obstacles in the way. We are authorized to sell the
Direcway Business Edition throughout Central America and we are
authorized by Hughes to sell and install Direcway in Central
America, the Caribbean, Canada, and the States.
