Internet Service Providers in Bogota Colombia.

My apologies in advance If there is a better list, please let me know.

I will be traveling to Bogota, Colombia for a few weeks in the spring and a
family member who is working there on a contract (where I will be staying)
has crappy internet. I want to kill 2 birds with one stone. Make sure I
have reliable internet and improve what they have. I'm just not sure what
options are available there.

I speak the language just not familiar with the options.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's very likely that your family member has either ETB (local city-owned
access) or Telmex Colombia. Both players have multiple technology options
(ADSL and WiMAX for both, coax and fiber for Telmex Colombia), so besides
replacing one for the other, it might be possible to improve access by
using a different technology from the same vendor already in place.

Knowing which technology options are available from each vendor at where
you will be will probably be key in defining a way forward.


As Rubens said, ETB and Telmex Comlombia/Claro are the biggest players in

Other good options are Internexa, Level3 and Telefónica.
