Here I am at sunny Condado utilising the internet in my apartment whilst it's still free.
Ok then, the situation with AreaNet@home -
The Areanet service is not currently working anywhere on Condado, the only public access was at Manzana's which shut a couple of weeks ago. Polaris Telecom have suspended sales to new customers until they get the service fully working again. For those of use that have already paid for installation they are offering either a refund or a free 'Bronze' ( 1Mb ) connection until the service is fully available, which I think is only fair.
The bad news ( or good depending on how you look at it ) is that they expect to have AreaNet working by November the 10th, at which point our free connections will be turned off and will be switched over the AreaNet. I assume at that point the service will be available to new customers as well.
As a backup I've also bought a payg 3G Dongle, that works OK although obviously not as fast as the fixed connection depending on the signal strengh, but is only 5Cents a Mb which is a lot better than using your UK one at between £1.25 and £2.5 a Mb!.
