Internet in Spain
There are several larger and smaller companies that deliver Internet in Spain. The largest are Jazztel, Telefonica, Orange, Vodaphone and Yacom. All these have their strengths and weaknesses. Inter via fiber to ordinary houses are not common, but there are many operators that provide ADSL or wireless internet.
Most internet service providers operate with a one year subscription.
ADSL in Spain
When you order ADSL in Spain, you will always get a telephone landline as well. Unfortunately it is not always possible to install ADSL in Spain in regular apartments, which leaves you to choose between wireless internet or internet via USB stick.

Internett via USB-stick
If you can not get either ADSL, WiFi or internet via satellite, you are left to use an USB stick from one of the mobile operators in Spain. Unfortunately this leads to strong restrictions on its use, since it involves a download limit of 5 or 10 GB of data. This means that this is not suitable for file sharing or watching TV / movies via the internet. USB-sticks are also not suited for the use of Skype.
Wireless internet in Spain
If you can't get ADSL in your home you could try one of the many providers of wireless internet in Spain. Installing wireless internet in Spain normally require installing an antenna or a dish on your rooftop. There are also limitations in the coverage area.
Speed of internet in Spain
If you have ADSL or ADSL-2 then the speed depends on how far from the exchange you are and what operator you have. With wireless internet via WiFi it depends on the coverage in your area.
