    I have a pre-paid modem. Its name is Netwey, you can google it for more information. You can pay online or at Oxxo stores. Volunteers can use it taking turns. This is a rural area and sometimes signal comes and goes so if you can be patience and flexible it would be good, if you need a really fast internet connection you might not get it, so you decide if it will be good for you :)
