Hi, I  have recently  purchased  in la Zenia, the urbanisation  does not have fibre and I  would be grateful for advice for Wi-Fi and tv

We will be using the property  for2/3 week periods  several times a year  and don't  know what to look for at this stage

Thanks

Brid

Hi Brid

We have just gone through this process 

Several providers offer a facility to switch on and off

We are on a residencia in Playa Flamenca and not sure how this compares to La Zenia

We were limited to which providers we can use. There is fibre optic into the community but only one company said that they could provide fibre optic to us. 

The rest would need to install a satélite dish and could only supply WiMAX at a much reduced speed

You should probably ring or email a few to establish exact what they can provide before committing 

Some providers you simply pay for the days you are in Spain

Some will charge for a whole month in any one month where the internet is accessed just once

One provider had a minimum number of months that you have to pay for in any one year

We looked at

https://www.olecomunicacion.com/ 

http://www.tvhoradada.com/

https://www.dvblab.com/

TVHoradada (Avatel) have completed the installation 

We had to pay €120 to activate the on/off service but they did not charge for installation which included the router

We now simply have to give them advance warning of when we will be in Spain and they turn the system on and charge us for those days only

Hope this helps

Grahame

A satellite dish won't get you Freeview but it might get you Freesat!

Hi Brid

We had same scenario as you when we bought 4 years ago, had no fibre so went for mast type wi-fi and sat dish installation from a company called P & NTV Services. They are an established English company, had no problems with the world-fi, and had to have the sat dish realigned in the one occasion.

You can pay as you go, contact them in advance and they will phone you back to make the payment - have been great for us, exactly what we need. Highly recommend them 👍

Hi Brid09,

I'm in a similar situation in my flat in Denia- my personal choice is a satellite dish and set top box for 400 euros , one off payment and gets all freeview programmes . For wifi I've got a UK sim card with unlimited data which you can use in Spain , costs £20 a month.

Hope this helps , Warwick

Hi Warwick - What channels do you get on your set-top box?

I am told all the usual freesat channels,  but not had the box installed yet as I am stuck in the UK for a few weeks . I will be using a company called The sat and PC Guy , www.satandpcguy.com - I'm sure he will give you any help you need , Warwick
