In late 2019 three companies were asked for quotes based on installing fibre to Condado de Alhama and providing full fibre direct to each home (FFTP) ensuring that our resort has good comms services (internet , TV and phones) and infrastructure for the coming years and future demand.
Following a competitive tender process, we received prices from three providers Az2, Cable Murcia and Teletec.
The remit of the tender was to ensure that we maintain the lowest price level to residents as well as ensuring that our infrastructure and service are fit for the next decade. Almost all failures in the Internet, TV and phones services are as a result of failing infrastructure on site and not external issues.
Cable Murcia, our incumbent, provided the most competitive quote (around the same price we currently pay) with the least disruption and the highest basic speed of 100Mb/s ULTRAFAST broadband to each property (increasing the speed 10x from the existing 10mb/s). The comms committee and the level 1 board voted to present the Cable Murcia offer to owners at the AGM in February 2020 for them to vote on.
In the coming weeks we will prepare more information for this voting item at the AGM. If agreed at the AGM, fibre to the complex and into each property could be completed within 6-8 months.
We hope that owners recognise this as a step change in the service provision for the next decade whilst also maintaining a base price around the existing level. It would also mean Condado de Alhama would have the best provision for Internet, TV and phone on a resort, in this region.
