Unbelievable as it may seem, TelMex (local and only telephone company) is installing poles in the Las Tunas area. Earlier this year, a new sub-station was built and now the poles are going in. The good news is we will have real phone service in the area. The bad news is the poles are above ground. The Las Tunas area banded together previously to mandate underground electricity only, in order not to have unsightly poles all over the neighborhood. At great monetary cost and ongoing hassle, all electricity in the area is underground.
Not so the phone service.
Will we also have DSL internet access? Time will tell.
