    I gave up waiting for telefonica to provide me with a telephone line, I live in Calahonda and use Y-internet (located above super-sol Calahonda) wi-fi, so far its been excellent, signal strength varies from good to excellent, prices 150eu. per year. Several friends are also in the process of ditching telefonica in favour of a wireless system.

    I can help you with this! After numerous battles with Telefonica, I was delighted to find out Vodafone have various options. They have a totally wireless adsl for in the house – no lines needed but I opted for a modem which plugs into the laptop. 39 euros per month, nothing more to pay regardless of how much you use it, first month free. No landline so it moves with you wherever you are (they do a mobile landline as well 15 euros per month free calls to landlines in Spain) and means I can use Skype for free calls and with skypes international option, I pay under 3 euros per month for calls free to any landline in europe!

    Vodafone have kiosks everywhere so you can actually see a face when you need to sort something!

    popfax.com for faxes to the computer for a couple of euros monthly as well.

    Bye bye Telefonica! 😆

    I agree with Vodafone. I have used it when I was there as well. It was the best option available and the fastest to setup. They give you a USB modem that you plug into your laptop and can use anywhere. It is not connected to your landline at all.

    When I used it, they had two options, the pay as you go or prepago and the monthly contract. I think that you need to have some proof of Spanish residency to get the monthly plan, an NIE or something. If you don’t have an NIE, you will have to get the pay as you go which is nearly not as cost effective, but if you are desperate for internet access, it does the job.
