    T-Mobile in Mexico

    In Mexico, T-Mobile did well on TELCEL and Movistar.

    TELCEL had good coverage in Costa Maya and in Cozumel, Movistar was the fastest (I guess because it was the least used network) but TELCEL had more coverage outside the port area.

    On the ship, T-Mobile service worked off the coast of Fort Lauderdale and Miami as well as the Keys.

    What type of data connections were available in Cozumel? I'm visiting in March. Fortunately I'm not concerned about max speeds anymore, and mainly want something where the occasional scrolls through Twitter and Reddit work.

    You'll be fine in Mexico, if one network seems slow and congested. Just manually switch to another one. I beleive it is a mixture of LTE, & HSPA in Cozumel last time I was there.

    T-Mobile does not go out of their way to provide offshore service but I have used their signal as far as 20 km out in the Gulf, off Pensacola. You need to be very careful when using your cell phone anywhere onboard cruise ships. Turning the phone off may not de-register the connection to the shipboard cellular system, the way it's supposed to. This is a trick some roamed cellular systems use to keep your phone registered so that they get more roaming income. I'd be sure to forward all calls to voicemail and check the setting before turning the phone off.
