I have had a read through a lot of the posts on this matter but notice that a lot of them are several years old. Obviously, technology has come a long way in that time. I am looking for a fast, high speed internet connection with telephone line. I am going to be moving out to Almeria and will be working from home, for which I need a high-speed connection. Can anyone recommend any companies? Thanks in advance.

It depends very much on where you are going to be. For instance, if you were to be based in Madrid then Internet speeds of up to 1,000 Mb/s are available but you won't get that in Almeria. Where cable is available then you might get 300 Mb/s. Within most towns ADSL is normally available which should get you speeds of up to about 30 Mb/s. Within towns there is a hugh range of providers.

Once you get out into the countryside then there are no phone lines or cable so your chose is limited to mobile internet or wimax. With mobile internet you need 4G to get decent speeds. This is available in some areas but you need to be specific about where you are going to be. Wimax is now more widely available and has moved on a long way since we moved here 5 years ago. The best speeds then were 2Mbs in limited areas but now speeds of up to 30 Mbs are available. However, available suppliers depends, again, upon precisely where you are. Some of the local providers in northern Almeria include:-

Wimax online
Telplay
Albox online

Indalo Channel

Or satellite, e.g. Tooway.
