If you can get a Movistar or Orange mobile signal you should be able to get a sim card router, I've tested two out that direction and got 18mb download and both were about 45 euro a month

That’s very interesting - I was, coincidentally, talking with guest of ours yesterday about our poor (Movistar landline) internet, and he suggested a SIM card router. Both our mobiles were getting 21 MPS, whilst the internet was putting out about 3!

We use the internet for all the usual stuff plus TV via an IPTV system, so my concern would be the number of GBs we would need each month to use it instead of our landline-based system. Does anyone have any experience of using a sim-card router for everything including TV? Any recommendations re provider and data package etc? Many thanks!

We had a sim card router from Tiekom, with an Orange sim it cost circa €50 a month, but was so unstable as to be worse than useless, in point of fact we still have the router if its of use to anyone.

We tried the Vodafone 3g system in El Cotillo - useless!!

Never had enough bandwidth to stream TV. Advice from Vodafone was always 'remove the SIM card, wipe it and replace it' - didn't make any difference. 

Also concerned that when we were able to stream, we were consuming bandwidth at an alarming rate. Calculated that two hours TV per night would eat up monthly allowance in two and a half weeks. 

However......  Have friends in the other edge of Cotillo (we are La Concha end) and they have a fabulous signal!!

Have a spare Vodafone router if anyone wants to try.

They are trying to spread fibre slowly. I tried to get fibre as my neighbour just 1 street away could get it but when I enquired about having it, I was informed that I could not have it.

They are putting fibre to cabinets but seems that they are not at the moment linking fibre from cables to all houses. So it's a bit of a lottery whether you will be able to have fibre installed at the moment. It is Fuerteventura and they work at their own pace and if you ask if there is a planned date when you will get it, you get a shrug of the shoulders and told you will just have to keep asking until you strike lucky.

If you're not in a rush Wifi 6 is due out later this year and it's a game changer, you'll be downloading gigabytes instead of MBs.

I'll be glad too because I'm signed up with JRM Netservice and paying for 6 MBs a month and normally can't even 2 and they just ignore my emails so not worth arguing over it so can't wait to change to a decent service.

So whichever supplier upgrades first will run away with all the customers as congestion should be a thing of the past as should throttling supply to force customers to pay more which I'm sure is happening at present
