Wireless Internet and cell phone coverage in Mexico
Reliable cell phone coverage and service in Mexico has improved over the past few years. Celluar providers such as AT&T have broadened their reach into Mexico communities with better phone service.
Wireless Internet access is still spotty in many areas, even with the faster 3G network that brings broadband coverage to cell phones and iPhones. You may need to activate international roaming on your account to call outside of the U.S. and not incur hefty Mexico phone charges.
