Meanwhile almost all estates on la Palma are connected to the Internet, the development of the net takes place with high speed. Many different technologies are currently available, so that a nationwide connection is possible. Technical solutions are:
Fiber optic cable - speeds up to 300 Mbit possible. The network is currently being expanded and is available e.g. in Los Llanos, in Puntagorda from January 2019...
Copper cable over the telephone network - speed up to 10 Mbit possible, depending on the distance to the next node
- Radio over mobile network - available almost all over the island - speeds currently up to 10 Mbit possible
- directional radio - possible if there is a line of sight to the next radio transmitter. Speeds up to 12 Mbit possible, at quite interesting prices
- Satellite connection - 100% coverage of the whole island, speeds up to 22MBit possible, relatively expensive, but at least, it works in the most remote areas.
