For comparison this is what I have to put up with:

That is really impressive.

Choice

1) Living in Slough with 50 Mb

2) Living in Tenerife with dial-up internet and a postal service which delivers at least twice a year.

A close call  :D

I'd feel the same way if I actually lived in Slough

Fibre is coming to Palm Mar and I'm ready to sign up!!  :hyper:

Now, do I want 50MB for €55 or 300MB for €67, prices with IVA so will be a bit less.  €55 is what I want to pay but ohhhh fast internet is so important to me.... maybe I should just go for the full monty...

You're right, of course, but.....  I've just spoken to Movistar and she said it's going to be two months before it's actually available for contratación, that they're only just beginning the installation, but she's put me in as a reservation and said I will get a call the day it's available.  (yes I know...  ::))  Prices in Canarias are actually €48 and €59.
