Free Internet in San Miguel Centro… Will the municipality fulfill its promise?

Share This

There are no signs of the installation of the long expected new free Internet service in the center of SMA.

According to a statement of City Council official, Manuel Orozco: “the project is almost finished” but so far it is not happening. Same thing declared Ricardo Villarreal and Ángel Gastelum since March.

The municipality of San Miguel de Allende signed an agreement with the American company AT & T since November 2016.  Ever since the announcement was made, it was said that the service would be ready in January 2017. And of course, this is still not the case.

Ricardo Villarreal stated at the time that the complexity in the streets of San Miguel de Allende and the fact that the streets are part of the World Cultural Heritage of Humanity, caused the fiber optics installation process to be delayed.

At the end of 2017, Villarreal García said that the service would be ready by the beginning of 2018. And then, on February of 2018, Director Angel Gastelum guaranteed that the service would be inaugurated in March.

And today, April 9th 2018, the implementation of this service is still uncertain.

The City Secretary Manuel Orozco declared:  “The entire wireless network has already been installed. We are currently running tests to verify the operation, and to guarantee that the service is safe. ”
