After 28 months with Mexican Prodigy switched to Mexican AT&T.
The latest *scientific* results are in from the comparison between AT&T
and Prodigy ISP's in Mexico:
1. Prodigy will cut off any session lasting more than 8:00 hours at
exactly 8 hours. I thought it was Telmex doing that. It is Prodigy. I
have suffered for 3 years with this! AT&T does not. Running now for 8
hours 35 minutes without sighup!
2. Playing mplayer to KUSC produces good results in the afternoon. I
could never do that in Prodigy.
*Recommendation*: if you live in Mexico do not ever get Prodigy!
BTW this is a low bandwidth connection. I cannot imagine high bandwidth
ever getting here with Telmex. They say they have it. So I subscribed.
After 3 weeks waiting I went to see the bosses in town. Ah, high
bandwidth... No, not where you live.
