I'm confused.

Satellite Internet comes from Satellites not masts surely? Mountains/hills may be an issue - you need line of sight to the satellite

WiFi Internet is only with the home. Mountains/hills not an issue

WiMax (internet) comes from masts. Mountains/hills may be an issue - you need clear line-of-sight to the mast

Fibre Optic internet comes from cables run into your home. Mountains/hills not an issue

I've got a small dish on the side of my house that gets a signal from a mast opposite so it must be WiMax … This is my only option because of the hill , fibre close by but not in my road...Nobody seems to know if or when fibre will be coming to my road.

My Fusion crept up to nearly 70€ a month so I went to the shop and explained it to them and said I was going to Orange. They advised reducing to Fusion Cero and I saved around 240€ per annum.

So I recommend reviewing your service and seeing if you can swap contracts and save money. Their online system explains your exact services and prices so it is easy to review and decide if you are paying for service you don't need.
hi spainrico. told wife about that. put that in note book thanks ,,,ashes start soon i,ve booked a seat already.

We have adsl 10mb at my parents house and it works fine - they keep trying to upgrade it to fibre, but he doesnt need it just for the TV.

We have a Wimax system at our campo house, its "upto 10mb" at €25 a month. it is ok, the films and tv and youtube work fine. Its a local company in Alhaurin el Grande, and it seems to be ok 97% of the time. Its a "line of sight" system, and took the guy about 20 minutes to set up, including drilling thru the wall.
