Buying a home implies having to make numerous decisions, and these take time and dedication to be able to make them in the best way.
First of all, you should invest time and effort in looking for that home that best suits your needs and then, once you have acquired the property of your dreams, you must take care of many other things, such as hiring the internet service there.
First of all, you should know that when you start looking at the different tariffs that the companies have, one of the most important things to consider is the coverage of the area in which you will hire the service, because depending on this, you will have to contract one type of tariff or another, and so you will avoid being paying for something that will not serve you.
How can I check the coverage of the place I live in?
Currently, you can check the fiber coverage by postal code via the internet without having to perform any management that takes you too long. Doing so using the postal code is something really useful, since you will know if your exact location can have one type of internet.
Today, optical fiber is the most widespread technology in Spain for installing internet at home, and all companies offer it, practically, throughout the territory. While it is true, there are areas where this technology has not yet arrived, and it is necessary to resort to tariffs with other options, for example ADSL.
The importance of checking the coverage occurs for this reason, if you contract an optical fiber service with your company, but this has not yet arrived in your area for various reasons – for example if you live in inaccessible areas, it is difficult for the wiring to arrive – you will be paying for something that will not serve you, not because the company does not provide it to you, but because it is not available in your region.
In addition, it is necessary to know that not all operators have their own network infrastructure, which means that some companies rent the coverage network that other operators do so that they can also provide that service to their users.
These are the best alternatives to fiber optics
Although optical fiber is, practically, the main source of internet that Spain has, there are rural or difficult access areas in the area in which they are located that can still not have this type of internet in their homes.
If you live in an area where you do not have fiber optics, one of the best alternatives is ADSL.
Although ADSL is something that is increasingly out of use, it remains the best option when you do not have optical fiber. Although its territorial extension is more than fiber, it does not give the option of being able to connect to more than 35 Mbps, and this is one of the main differences that exist between ADSL and the most distinguished fiber.
ADSL, of course, implies a speed limit, and this is the main reason why many companies do not continue to offer it. The alternative they have opted for, for example, companies like Vodafone or Orange, is to offer unlimited 4G at home to replace fiber, as it reaches 300 Mb of speed.
Once you have checked the coverage you have in your area, you can start looking at what are the different internet and mobile offers available, and choose the one that best suits your needs.
