High Speed Internet Solution For Lanzarote

Internet can be a problem in Lanzarote. Fibre optic is only just being installed in some areas of the island, so most of us have to put up with the vagaries of copper cabling, and depending on how close you are to the nearest junction box, internet speed can vary from 1 to 8 MBPS, which, for general surfing is fine. But the moment you try to watch online television, or even stream radio whilst surfing media rich websites, it can all go horribly wrong.

I’m delighted to report we’ve come across a solution! A local company has begun to sell 4G routers with unlimited internet contracts. They contacted me and offered for me to try one, and as you can see, the speed is pretty impressive!

And Stratvs isn’t opening, after all...

Precinto Bodega Stratvs Closed 2 2

After reporting here that the Las Palmas court overturned the forced closure of Bodega Stravs last week, the new resolution was challenged in the court, resulting in a further judgement that the bodega must remain closed. The new ruling takes into account that the original term of closure granted was five years, for the case to reach completion, and also that the conclusion of the court case concerning the legality of the build is “imminent."  read more »
