Hi eiss and welcome to the forum.

What exactly would you like to know re business broadband?

We have two business broadband connections with Telefonica, but I'm not sure what you are actually asking

I use IDECNET as my home ISP - but their main business is business. The have a very good reputation and I chose them for their good customer reviews.

their website is all in spanish but they're bound to have someone who speaks english (they're based in the canaries)

Idecnet.com

Hi again,

Telefonica is the only internet/broadband provider in Spain (all other companies connect through Telefonica). At least as far as I know. There is a weblink below which gives information re businesses (empressas) and landlines that they provide, but I'm afraid it's in Spanish.

Click here

You can also translate the webpage using Altavista and copy/pasting the link address in and although the translation is crap, you will get some idea of what they are offering. They also do special offers very frequently.

We pay a basic monthly charge of €45.07 for ADSL and €13.70 for landline. Our actual connection was done 3 years ago, so I don't think it would help you to know that we paid about €110 for that as I'm sure prices are different now.

I'm afraid I don't know what the bandwidth is (have looked at papers, but can't see anything there), but I do know it's bloody fast in downloading almost anything

Hope I have helped in some miniscule way
Martha

Telefonica in Spain is the same as BT in the UK. There are numerous providors, but you need to see if they can actually provide in your area as Telefonica are, shall we say, not particularly helpful to some of the providors

I live in a semi-rural area and get 1mb and a guy just down the road cant get it, some members live in the sticks and get 3mb.
Telefonica advertise 8mb, but I think you would have to be in their office to get that. LOL
If you know a nearby phone number type it in and it will let you know what is available. The link is in the free beer thread.

Jazztel also provide this service as they can take over the telephone line from Telefonica and then provide up to 20mb broadband.

Telefonica don´t have a total monopoly on telephone lines.

I don´t know the name of all their competitors, but ONO and Jazztel are two who can provide you with broadband without having to use the old telefonica lines (PROVIDED they have coverage in your area).

If your business is dependant on the adsl line not going down then maybe avoid Jazztel.

I did consider signing up with them a few weeks ago but cancelled it after reading many horror stories on the web. It's no fun when your connection disappears for over a week.

Back in the UK i was always moaning about BT but my God how I would love them now.
