20mg download and 6mg upload ... the same as anywhere in Europe where you can see the sky! Check out the website: www.europasat.com. By the way, you can rent or buy this system from Spanish or English companies in Spain. If you use a UK company you get an English IP address which means you can download BBC and ITV programmes without any problems.Almost afraid to ask this as I reckon I ain't gonna like the answer.
Looking at Parcent, Jalon valley area. How slow is the net speed there?
It doesn´t matter where you are, the service is the same whether you are in a city centre or the top of a remote mountain. We are in a remote mountain location and have used Tooway for three years without any problem. The speeds are consistent and reliable. We run a PC, Ipad and two smart phones on our satellite wifi network and often, when we have visitors, there are two or more additional smartphones also downloading. We regularly watch downloaded UK TV and have video calls with the family in the UK, all without any problem as well. By the way, we also have our telephone via the system. We tried several alternatives before discovering Tooway and nothing else worked! I can recommend it.Thanks for that. Alas its the usual " up to" re speeds and I very much doubt it would be anywhere near those speeds in Parcent
Yip that's the problem. I cannot see an option for unlimited in SpainSpeed isn't the issue with satellite as there's no dodgy copper cable to get in the way - only air. The problem is how much data a month do you need? 1 hour HD programme = 1Gb if you are using t'internet to watch TV.
But how much do you need? We have a 20gb a month package (and that gives unlimited downloads between 11pm and 7 am) and have never exceeded our limit. We don´t watch TV all the time, because we have a separate Sky satellite dish for that, but we do download missed programmes and have video calls. Our first internet system when we moved here seven years ago was a Movistar mobile dongle with a 1gb a month limit. We then changed to Vodafone with 3gb a month - never exceeded either of their limits either, but that´s because we could never stay connected for more than a few minutes at a time!!!Yip that's the problem. I cannot see an option for unlimited in Spain
I think in that case the Jalon area could be a problem for you. Take care on renting or buying to check what type of telephone the property has. Most rural properties rely upon the Movistar Trac phone, which is a very outdated radio phone system, absolutely useless for any type of internet connection. The estate agents details for the house we bought said "telephone with ADSL." We saw the phone in the house when viewing and spoke to the vendor several times by phone, so didn´t question it. But it turned out to be a Trac phone, which everyone in our area relied upon at the time. We now have a couple of WIMAX suppliers for phone and internet in our area but from what we have been told they provide a hit-and-miss service and suffer from a lot of outages. A neighbour who signed up to WIMAX also tells us that he can´t watch TV online because it constantly buffers, even though the supplier assured him it would work. Have you looked into Sky for UK TV? We get perfect round-the-clock free Sky TV with all the channels we used to have in the UK, although we do have a 2.4 metre dish. I understand though that smaller dishes work well since the broadcasts moved to a new satellite last year.Won't have Sky so need unlimited net to use Filmon regularly
