Default Wifi in holiday apartment

Can anybody recommend or advise the best method of getting wifi in my apartment?

Will need it for circa 6 months of the year, and would like to be able switch it on/off remotely. ConectaBalear looks good but are there any alternatives?

Thanks

Andy

We use Ibred who have an office in Pollensa. They allow us to shut it off for 3 or 4 months. It's a decent price which allows us to use a firestick

If you are using it for tv that is a very expensive way of doing it and will struggle for the speeds when using stick etc.

We're still renting at the moment, in a house with no wifi, so we had to sort it ourselves. We're using these guys at the moment.

We bought a mifi router from mediamarkt and have a PAYG vodaphone sim with 300gb of data a month for just under 40. We run a firestick, 2 mobiles and an ipad off it and it seems OK.

I had the same set up when I first moved here. It worked fine for me.

Appreciate you're renting but 100mb fibre with Movistar without a contract (and obviously unlimited data) is 30 per month. To watch tv uses appox 15gb per hour (depends if hd etc). There other cheaper alternatives than Movistar but invariably require a contract.

Looks like im moving over to connected balears. They're pretty good to chat to via email. Only downside of their €29 tariff is €150 cancellation fee ( and the fact I have to stay here for the next 2 weeks for them to install... not a problem).

Well, Connected Baleares called a day early and got us plugged in. They phoned first to confirm.

They replaced the Movistar all-in-one modem/wifi router with a little Nokia Fibre Modem and this has a WAN cable into a separate "NuCom" Wireless router... which is garbage. It can barely send wifi into the next room... looks like I'll need to buy a decent TP Link type box, maybe get a mesh system...

Speedtest shows a rock solid 100-110MBps up and down so the service is good.

I would strongly recommend Nova mesh. We have them all around the family now. Easy to install, powerful and cost effective. Available on Amazon.

I ended up getting TP Link M4 as I use these in the UK too and have the app on the phone to control them. 3 pack for 120.

Only issue installing was that you cant ditch the NuCom box so the I now have 3 boxes sat under my desk and 2 wifi systems... ConectaBalears support are pretty decent though and can turn off their wifi if I want to.

Cancelling the old Jazztel/Tiekom was easy enough. Just emailed the support and need to pop the old router in the post.... but now I've done it my Facebook is filling up with ads for Jazztel at lower prices...
