¿How do we bring fiber to another town?

Installing a fiber optic network in a town requires time, dedication and support from local authorities and their citizens. Here we explain the whole process.

First phase: the project

First contact

The first step before deciding whether to start a fiber project in a new location, is to conduct a study assessing the interest of citizens, the number of people who already use our Wimax services in the area and if ultra fast broadband services are already offered there.


Our engineering team contacts local authorities and thoroughly investigates the area: streets, population density and existing underground pipelines. All this to have the best and most complete radiography that will allow us to carry out our work in an efficient way and with the minimum inconvenience for the neighbors of the locality where we are deploying.


Once we have all the details, we design an optical fiber map optimized to the specific needs and features of the town. Then we officially present our technical project to the city council for approval, ending the first phase and being able to start the second phase, the deployment.

Second phase: the deployment


Our technical team begins to deploy the optic fiber along all the streets of the town, following the design presented by our engineering team. In this phase you will frequently see several workers and vehicles of ConectaBalear in the area. That means there is not much left!


After having completed the laying of fiber cables throughout the urban nucleus, our installers are responsible for merging and connecting the entire network. To finish the project, we make a reflectometry diagnosis and certify that the entire network works as it should. At this moment, you can already connect with the fiber!

Available in most of the localities

We already offer optic fibre in more than 180 locations in the Balearic Islands and we continue to expand our network of coverage without rest.
