  1. Telefonica landline with ADSL router and WiFi.
  2. Rated 2 megs, actual speed 1184 kbs down stream and 320 kbs up stream
  3. Nailed up connection (24 hours).
  4. Not sure, probably 1 year minimum. I've had the connection 3.5 years.
  5. 100%. It used to be terrible in the summer but I found this was down to voltage drop on the household supply rather than a problem with the phone line. I changed to a high output power supply to the router and now it works flawlessly.
  6. Alicante province. I'm 6.5 km from the telephone office which is near the limit for ADSL. Rural connects are slower but allow a bit more distance.
  7. Optional. Either do it yourself or have an engineer round. I bought the first router from Telefonica but that was damaged by a lightning strike.
  8. Telefonica Duo, costs 38 euros/month on top of the basic rental fee. For that you get free local and national calls and full time ADSL with no data quantity restrictions.

That's your LAN speed and has nothing to do with your connection speed.

(SNIP - Rule 3)

1. Telefonica landline with ADSL router and WiFi.
2. Rated 1 megs, actual speed 800 kbs ish down stream and 260 kbs up stream
3. 24 hours
4. Not sure, probably 1 year minimum.
5. Extremely good.
6. Valencia province - Ontinyent in Campo so I should only really get 512 K
7. Optional. Either do it yourself or have an engineer round. I bought the first router from Telefonica but that was damaged so I installed my own wireless netgear one.
8. ADSL 24H from Telefonica is 39,90 per month on top of the basic rental fee (which for me is 13,974). For that you get free local and national calls and full time ADSL with no data quantity restrictions.

Can you edit your post and ask the question what restrictions are on the service, if the download is capped or it is capped at certain times of the day.

for some BB users this will be quite important I feel.
