Connecting to the internet at home through WiFi can be done in different ways, either through a satellite connection, rural WiMax, 4G at home, or ADSL, but the most widespread today is fiber (FTTH and HFC), which reaches to some 27 million homes or offices. In addition, fiber is also the one that offers the best quality/price ratio, and on which we are going to focus this review.
Specifically, we will review the fiber-only deals fine print, more aimed at people who share a flat, students, businesses, second homes, or families who prefer to keep their fixed and mobile lines independent, either due to coverage incompatibilities (you can have fiber coverage and not mobile, or vice versa), or for any other reason. If this is not the case, probably the cheapest thing is to combine fiber and mobile with the same operator.

Without any permanence, Vodafone yu and Movistar stand out. Other operators also offer the option of substituting the permanence for a registration cost, but in practice, it is like paying in advance the same penalty that is paid for early cancellation when you have permanence.
