I realise there have been other posts on this forum about these, but both are quite old now and I was wondering if there has been any changes.
I am looking into getting internet installed in my apartment in Mojacar, the options as I see them are fixed landline (with Telefonica etc) or a WiFi service with either Wimax or Next, as I am not a full time resident the option of being able to deactivate the latter Wifi whilst I am away is obviously a benefit and a reduction is cost.
I have heard that Next is not as reliable as Wimax. Does anyone have any experiences of either they would care to share with me?
Also, installation costs seem to be quite high (250 Euros), is this normal or do they run offers?

Thanks for the update - it will be interesting to hear how things develop after a few months, or perhaps if you're there at Easter when could be busier.
We had problems with the most popular tv progs last autumn so whether it's better in quieter times, we'll see.
As said elsewhere on a different posting
"Unfortunately, there's a lot more to the net than just having a faster download speed. We have a 20 Mb link and still get buffering. Basically, there are too many other things that can result in the buffering problem."
You had two technicians, we had only one from Next - who did an excellent job - maybe that's why it cost you 250 euros!
