Many buyers considering Mexico real estate will question the access to modern information technology, such as internet and cell phones; in fact, Mexico is poised to develop into a thriving "information society," and many areas where Mexico beachfront for sale is available, these benefits are already very easily seen.
The global impact of information is making strides forward in Mexico, as the concept of an "information society" is becoming increasingly important around the world. While Mexico still has a way to go to catch up with the countries where high-speed, broad-band internet connection is almost considered a human right, the country has increased the number of Internet users and drastically increased the areas which have access to such services are available; it is not missing much to become an "information society."
What does this mean for those considering buying a Mexico condo for sale on the beachfront?
Among the first areas to be reached by Mexico's information infrastructure were the thriving tourist areas on the beachfront, like Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Puerto Vallarta. These areas enjoy completely reliable high-speed internet connections at very reasonable prices. Packages from phone companies offer deals on a phone line, internet and cable/satellite combination. Some of the newest developments are including underground fibre-optic wiring offering the most modern and fastest speeds of connections.
Cell phone networks are also widespread. A variety of companies compete to offer the best monthly packages, including phones like new Blackberries, and accessible pay as you go plans. Network coverage becomes available in new places every day, and, again, the tourist centers have been among the first to enjoy the best service.
Wireless internet for lap tops and for smartphones, iPads, etc, is also becoming very widespread in many restaurants, cafes, malls and public places; Playa del Carmen, for example, even has free wireless internet access in parks and other public spaces.
The overall impact of the information society has advanced by leaps and bounds as the European Union and the United States for some years, have changed their secondary legal rules as the "Directive 2000/31" and "Digital Milleniumm Act," respectively, promote regular access to the Internet, electronic commerce, the legal protection of data messages and protection of personal data.
Mexico is following close behind, and among emerging economies, it shows some of the best potential to become an "information society" in the near future; for expats relying on good communication infrastructure, there couldn't be better news.
