It is a very reliable service , except if using wi-fi you only get half the advertised speed , the full speed only on hard wired puter , and don't believe a word they say about cost and what you receive for the money . Plus they don't reply to your e-mails , so all in all I am contracted for 4 months , then it will be gone .

Thanks for getting back to me, I've been with Telecable for a few years now on the 4gb never really had a problem and they always answered my emails.A friend who has got 8gb has had many problems and is thinking of changing supplier. I only use my internet for shopping, emails, I don't download anything but my son has bought us one of these android tv boxes and the 4gb is not strong enough thats why I thought about up grading.Anyway thanks again.Alan.

If you read my post here PeterS it tells you my experience of their fibre-optic . I have the 100MB download , which I near enough get on my hardwired puter , but with the w-fi in other rooms it is about one third of that usually , even sitting ontop of the router you only get half the speed , between 40-50mb . The upload speed is usually about the same as the download .

For example, I am on my neighbours channel 4, if he changes it to channel 10 I would get full strength and speed.
You have to log in on the router and change the channel it uses. You only change the router, the computers connected to it will automatically use that channel.
In my case it is a difference between 2.9 points and 9 or 10.

Peter I use a programme called inSSIDer , does something simular , I cannot get the information to log into the router , I could with the older system but not this new one for wi-fi . Been to manufacturers site but it looks as if tele-cable have put in their own passwords . it appears it is set for auto channel selection as mine does change but I still get overlapping and co-channeling from others . My speed does change a lot depending which channel it is on .. at present it is on channel 9 and has a low signal , when it was on 6 there was a lot stronger one . And here in Spain it should only have a choice of 13 channels I believe .

I seem to have spoken to soon, since I asked about telecables fiber connection my 4mb connection is all over the place.I did a speedtest and was getting between 2.2 and 3.5mb I sent Telecable a email with a copy of my speedtest and was told that the speed was correct and nothing was wrong with it.I have been looking for my contract but cannot find it at the moment, I'm almost sure it doesn't say anything that the connection is from 2.2 and 4.0mb.I was going to upgrade to 8mb but if people are having problems with that then it would be a waste of money. I asked about fibre but was told I live on the wrong side of Calle Helsinki. Does anyone know of another company here on La Marina?Thanks ajp.

The best way is hardwired through coax or better fiberoptic. The fiber goes into the house to the wifi-router. All connections by air are only for low speed. It is good if you live in the mountains and there is no phoneline but thats it.
My neighbour has a phone and internet connection provided by Movistar, so over the phoneline he gets 10 megabit, no problem what so ever but it depends on the distance from the central point to the house. Higher speed like 25 50 or 100 megabit is not available on the phoneline here in LM.
The wifirouters password is usually available, the provider normally has a backdoor. You also need the password to change the settings if you use a security camera, you need to open a special port to use it.
Prices are also high in Spain compared to Holland where I live, I pay 23 euro a month for 2 phonelines and a 22 megabit connection, fiber is not available where I live but where it is, speeds to 300 megabit are available for a reasonable price.
