High Speed Internet

Hi everyone

I am new here....searching for information prior to a permanent move down here.

We are looking to buy either in the east Algarve, probably west Tavira/St Luzia area or just outside Praia da Luz (Montihos da Luz) but have to admit I am getting nervous that finding a high speed internet connection for my business will be a problem.

Could anyone already living in either of these areas - ie Montihos da Luz or Tavira - please give me the benefit of their experiences. Any information would be gratefully received.

Thanks very much.

Hi, it's usually best to do also do your own research also, then check in the service providers shop they can connect you before you commit. These sites might help:

1. This site gives you an indication of mobile data speeds which would be the worst case back up:
https://opensignal.com/networks/portugal/nos-cobertura

2. These are the main providers I think where you can check the postcode at least:
https://www.meo.pt/pacotes/como-aderir/cobertura
http://www.vodafone.pt/main/Particulare ... uraC2C.htm
https://www.nowo.pt/suporte/cobertura
http://www.nos.pt/
(Couldn't find the exact page for NOS)

3. Satellite is also an option.

My own experience south of Lisboa, near Setubal has been excellent. Fibre to the house, 60 Euro's a month, 200meg line, averages 240meg via ethernet cables to the router (technician told me I was the only person on the exchange using fibre to the house so had the network to myself).
Good luck!
