Can anyone recommend a fibre-optic broadband internet provider who provides a service that can be turned on and off so that it is only active, and we only pay for it, when we are in Spain?

Hi

FOBOS Telecom have a holiday home rate, we pay for up to 6 months use per year. Radio based, not fibre optic. Hope this helps. Andrew

Thanks. Do you know what the speed is? Is it good enough for working from home with two laptops and two mobiles?

Ours runs at around 15Mbps. Laptop and TV run great at same time, not tried the multiple devices you hope to use. 

Signal strength will depend where you are in relation to their transmitter, I expect Fobos can advise on this

Hi we use Olivenet their office is in Pueblo Nuevo.  We find them excellent.  As long as you give them notice they turn off/on your broadband as and when required.  Hope this helps
