We are gonna be there presidents week. Now my cousins are thinking of joining BUT they need solid wifi border to work remotely.
For a week.

Are their places/rentals that have solid consistent wifi? Or a way for me to check for them?

La Vista Beach wifi is now all but useless. Hearing crickets from management.

French side has fiber optic internet at most places now it seems, at least orient beach and such. Was strong enough to stream/skype/video calls if needed. Sometimes Airbnb will say if they have strong Wi-Fi in description.

like this place says Wi-Fi 100Mbps, so pretty fast

Yes. Fiber in many places. But today there are outages on the Dutch side - not sure cause - but it affected Telem, Coral, Chippie, etc.

Update: LaVista is installing new equipment. Seems to be working very well My wife is a therapist and was able to have 1 hour sessions with clients using Google Duo.
