Default Internet in Pollenca with UK IP address

New to the area and looking for a good internet provider that can give me unlimited download usage and a UK IP address.

Ideally want the wifi box to be broadcasting the UK IP address, so that the iPads / smart tv etc will be able to run BBC/ITV/Sky iPlayers without each having some IP masking software on each of them.

Has anyone tried any of the satellite options and do you have any latency issues with using them?

You could try this -
There is a programme called EXPAT SHIELD which you open before logging onto any of the TV players. It creates a fake IP address that makes it appear that you are in the UK.

Have a friend near Malaga southern spain who has just had satellite broadband installed. Claims to get proper 20meg down, unlimited downloads, but 600ms latency. It's fine for downloading or streaming, noticeable but not terrible with voip or Skype. Gaming wouldn't work at all. It's pricey too at 100 euro per month, but does give uk ip address. I'm sure you could get the same in Mallorca.
