    Sadly I live in the spanish campo and it took 5 years to get a system that actually worked faster than a spanish donkey!!! I have used ALL the other options and have had this one for over a year now with no problems, they also supply a phone service all based on a wireless system hence the need to set a limit (they say). Other systems we have used have cost an arm and a leg to install and run at least with this we know our costs are static 29€ the internet 2mb and 25€ the phone with no call charges to any landline in the world which is great for my wife to call the UK for several hours a day :m13:.
    I actually used 45gig last month and they have'nt added any extra on but they did say watch it so I suppose it's fair use.....:cray:

    ooooh, spain
    you arrrre so sexy

    sorry about your trouble, dude
    be selective if there's any competition
    in your area

    move if you have to
    internet access
    is freedom to breathe

    :grin::grin::grin::grin::grin:Don't I know it, this is the 1st place I have ever lived that actually could give faster than dial up speed access. When in the UK it was always "coming next month to a road next to you" but not to you!!!!
    Good news here is that from April 1st the charge goes down to 29€ for net and 12.5€ for phone charges and still free calls any time any length to most places in the world (not internet phone system) which is a bit of a deal just have to watch my downloads not to much hardship I suppose in such a great climate:grin::grin::grin:

    Heya, ermm... I have to point out originally 39€ a month. now your saying it's going down to 29€ a month plus 12.5€ a month = 41.5€ a month. when I went to school 41.5 was greater than 39 by 2.5€ lmao:punish2::mosking:

    is stated in the contract that they have right to lower speed after certain amount of transfer.
    it there isn't anything about limiting the connection in the contract then sue them.
    tell them you are going to take them to court and they will probably offer you a deal.

    also you may hack few user account and use those if you really need to download something.

    If your read it correctly in my 2nd post the charge was 39€ plus 25€ was reduced to 29€ 12.50€ this is obviously more in tune with your maths which are good....it's your reading I'd be worried about :tomato2::tomato2::tomato2::mda:
