An Eye Opener

I am now in the process of switching over my last few customers to Telmex. I offered to do this for my clients who were forced to switch providers due to me closing down Lagunanet.

When I am out and about I have had a few people come up to me and it’s always the same old shit. I am usually greeted with.

Hi Rod how are you?

Me: “fine thanks”

Them: Hows everything?

Me: “great”

And then there is a brief pause, and then silence as if I should be showing some sign of despair or maybe sadness, but the truth is I am so fucking happy I shut down Lagunanet. I started this business back in 1996. Yep (22 years ago) I lived for this shit” I still do.

I am proud to have been the FIRST person to deliver internet access Lakeside, yes, long before Telmex, and I was the first to offer high-speed internet. And I am damn proud of it.

Termination of Internet Service In Riberas and Ajijic

This week I sent out the last couple of emails to clients in Riberas del Pilar and Ajijic informing them that as of the end of June I would no longer be able to offer Internet service in those areas, the decision was not easy for me, but from a financial standpoint, it was no longer feasible to maintain service there.

It has been a long time since I have posted on my blog, and for a good reason, the last two years have been a big transition period for me, I have been working on several projects, It seems like only yesterday  “1994” I was sitting in an old Telmex switching station in Chapala trying to help the technicians improve the local phone infrastructure so that Internet connectivity would be possible.

In 1996 when I would go to pay my phone bill at Telmex office in Chapala I would stare at a roster with a long list of signatures from people who wanted Telmex to provide Internet service. The list did little to prompt Telmex to do anything about it.The only ISP’s available where a long distance call away, which were the University of Guadalajara (UDG), Guadalajararve, and a few smaller companies offering dial-up.

Whats New with Lagunanet

The last couple of years have been some rough ones for Lagunanet, having started this business in 1997 it has been a great experience, and while I do not get out much like I used to I still continue to serve my existing customers, there has been much rumour of me closing down which is not the case, as long as I have customers I will continue to serve those customers.

Many have fled claiming that their service with their new internet provider has been much better which I think is great, for me it has given me time to refocus on what I originally did before I started Lagunanet which is online marketing. Just like those clients who felt they needed a better service, I needed to expand and change things up for myself, they say everything happens for a reason, and I do believe that to some extent, but hard work makes everything else happen.
