ConectaBalear is a local operator that provides Optic Fiber, mobile as well as fixed telephony and Wireless Wimax Internet service throughout the Balearic Islands. We are independent from the gigantic traditional companies and have our own latest generation Optic Fiber network! Get to know us!
Also as MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) we offer mobile phone services through the Orange network which allows us to have 95% coverage in the national territory and thanks to the international roaming agreement, coverage in the rest of the world. We thus complete the triple-play product with fixed, mobile and Internet in a single provider.
Are all Internet connections the same? Far from it, excellence in a connection is redundancy, backbone capacity and peering.
Our backbone network is composed of multiple links, which dispose of 10 Gigabit of Optic Fiber from different companies that connect the Balearic Islands in between each other, aswell as the Islands with the mainland. This is done using the undersea cables that are currently available. (Islalink, Telefónica and Spains Electric Net).
We are present in the points of presence (PoPs) of the Internet hubs in Spain, specifically in Valencia (Nixval) and Madrid (Interxion) where we interconnect, with private agreements of traffic exchange (peering) in DECIX and ESPANIX, with the largest content providers which allows us to reduce the latency of our connections to the minimum.
To complete our international interconnections we have transit with the following carriers: Vodafone, Cogent, Islalink (Telia, Level3) and Telefónica.
In order to have a network independent from other operators, we have an Autonomous System (AS57910) and we are members (LIR) of RIPE NCC (Internet Manager in Europe), which gives us our own IPv4 addressing, avoiding having to use technologies such as CGNAT to reuse IP addresses among several clients.
Thanks to our BGP4 routing protocol we always manage to pick the best way to get in and out of the net. In that way the latency time is kept at a minimum. All this together adds up to a stable high-speed connection.
We have an Operator's authorization awarded by the CNMC (Telecommunications Market Commission), which allows us to offer Internet access services through our own data network, fixed and mobile telephone services.
Our WiMax access network is made up of four main transmitting centres (Palma, Manacor, Sa Pobla and Ibiza) linked together by a high capacity fibre optic ring. From these we interconnect by means of radio links with our coverage nodes composed of a network of 200 repeaters strategically located on the islands of Mallorca and Ibiza.
