Internet speeds and costs?
« on: June 10, 2018, 11:11:52 PM »
Hi,

Any residents of VP - what speeds do you get?
What do you pay (pm)?
How reliable is it?
What providers can you recommend - and who to avoid?

Many thanks - Good reliable internet is paramount to us.

I have only 10 days experience and am in Antas, but not far from VP
I have a small satellite dish type internet. It is with instelNET.
10MB download and 2mb up is the official speed, but speed tests say 10mb each way
I am a heavy user and so far have not noticed any outage. Reliable is also very important to us too, so all good so far
It is 36.30 euro per month

There seem to be lots of other providers here, but I don't know enough about any to recommend any....
I think there is also fiber in the area too, but don't know the costs

Great info - Thanks Eddy and Claire  ;D


Who else has a decent internet connection in Vera Playa and can offer some info?

Do any internet providers also offer a combined sim package for mobile phones including data?

If anyone can advise we would be grateful - Thanks! :)

I inherited a satellite InstelNET internet when I bought in Villaricos. It has a small transmitter (?) about the size of your fist. It works well and had no outages when I have been there. Cost is 25 Euros a month. No idea of speeds but it does all I need. Can recommend.

Many thanks for the info.

Have you ever logged into " speedtest.net " (or similar) it will give you an accurate upload and download speed.

I would be interested to hear what speeds you get.

All the Best - T&S

I have instelNET too

I get 10MB down and 2MB up, this is quiet consistent on speedtest.net and fast enough for what i need
