BEST INTERNET OPTION FOR NERJA

NERJA by KRISS on 11 november 2015

BEST INTERNET OPTION FOR NERJA If you are a newcomer to Nerja there is a big chance you might be looking for an option to get internet in your house or wherever you are.
Well, some people arrive with 4G on their phones but if you are from the UK or Ireland for example, this might be a very expensive option and you won’t do much with your phone limited data.

We looked and tried for many options starting with the traditional Orange landline with ADSL.

Besides committing yourself to one year of contract with Orange it is not the fastest option.
After a few days a guy came at our house and tested the landline.
Bugger, it wasn’t connected to the main ADSL cable and the technician stopped investigating right there.
He explained to us that should the line be connected, it would cost an extra and was so complicated that he had no option for us.
By then we already had our ADSL router which we had to bring back to the post office.
Long story short that was a lot hassle for no result.

Then we started looking for wireless options and there are two of them.

Some satellite thing that costs a fortune and is not fast.
And 4G router if your area is able to pick any data signal (not necessarily 4G) in your area.
For those, you will find many options, some are limited and will give you only 20Go/month (orange) others unlimited but will have you purchase a router.

The only reliable unlimited option we found and which comes with a monthly contract you can stop whenever you want at your own convenience is Movistar.
It costs 40€/month and even if it’s more expensive than ADSL it is more practical and possible when ADSL isn’t.


It took a couple of days for the technician to come to our house, plug the router and that was it ! The router works fine and you can take it anywhere there is a plug !

In Nerja, we went to the Movistar shop on the roundabout at the end of the Carretera, just across from the bus station.
