As of Oct.1 2000 TelNor dropped the per minute charge of the telephone use. Now you have 100 free local calls with no time restriction, additional calls cost $1.49 pesos.
For the super user it is best to order a 2nd phone line as they give you a 50% discount on that and the per month rent charge is only $140 pesos. Before I paid $180 pesos for a 10 hour use of the phone for Internet access with out being charged the per minute use. A 2nd line installation cost about $800 pesos and is now done in 1 to 3 weeks time.
Also for about 900 pesos you can get Turbo Prodigy at 128 kb installed, the monthly charge for unlimited service is 399 pesos plus 1.49 for every call or connection over 200 per month. At some areas in larger towns, now even DSL service is available, check with your local Telnor or Telmex office.
