Vodafone Spain has announced that it has started offering commercial ADSL services in the Canary Islands, and at launch the cellco says it has deployed equipment in six telephone exchanges across the islands. Those signing up to the service will be provided with a Wi-Fi router for connecting to a fixed line, with Vodafone also including a USB modem to allow customers to access its HSDPA network either as a backup or when on the move. Prices for the service start from EUR29.90 (USD43.91) a month for a connection offering speeds between 3Mbps and 6Mbps, while downlink speeds between 6Mbps and 12Mbps will cost a minimum of EUR34.90. No installation or connection charges will be applied. In addition Vodafone claims that, having extended its reach to the islands, it has become only the second operator to offer a single-product nationwide ADSL service, after incumbent Telefonica de Espana.
