Portability is like moving house. It's about changing your provider and coming to Populoos and keeping your phone number.
2. When does portability become effective?
In 48 hours.
3. How does it work?
When you contract with Populoos, we will request the change of line to your previous provider, and we will send you the new SIM card by courier (delivery time is 5 working days).
24 hours later we will request the portability of the line and 48 hours later the portability will be effective. We will send an SMS to your mobile informing you of the portability date. In addition, we do the portability at dawn so that the change affects you as little as possible.
4. Is there an extra cost for managing the SIM?
We do not charge you for the SIM, only for shipping costs. If you request portability, the shipping costs are on us.
5. How do I activate my new SIM?
If it is a new line, you do not have to do anything, the card is activated within 4 hours after you receive it.
If it is a portability, the card will be activated automatically when the portability has been carried out. During the portability process we inform you via SMS of the day it will be effective, and you must insert the new card into your phone. Until then, your line will continue to work with your old company.
6. Do the mobile packages have permanency?
No, our mobile packages do not have any permanency.

Internet + Mobile
1. What is Fibre optics?
It is the most advanced cable data transmission medium that exists. It is capable of transmitting and receiving information at high speeds and long range.
2. And the symmetric Fibre?
Symmetrical Fibre is the most advanced technology on the market, which guarantees stable and quality Internet access. It is the one that allows you the same upload and download speed. Or, rather, it is the one that allows you to upload and download content at the same speed.
3. Wich is better, Fibre or ADSL?
Fibre without a doubt, for different reasons:
Fibre optics is much faster than ADSL.
Better connection quality transmits information through light impulses and achieves better quality transmission of information than ADSL. Think that the ADSL goes through the telephone cables and its distortion is much greater.
At the price level, Fibre has already been equated to the same ADSL prices, so contracting Fibre is much more recommended if you have coverage in your area.
Of course, Fibre requires installation by a technician, in the case of ADSL it is self-installable.
4. How long does it take to install Fibre optics in my house?
First, we check if there is coverage in your house. Second, we contact you to arrange the installation appointment. It usually TAKES between 2-3 hours. Normally for a new number the time scale is 3-5 days and 8-9 days for a portability.
5. How will the installation be in my house?
We will contact you to arrange the installation appointment, a specialized technician will go to your home, assess the best way to introduce Fibre to your home, avoiding excess wiring where possible and looking for the best solution for you, so you can start using your new Populoos Fibre immediately. Installation usually takes 2-3 hours.
We keep your number
So that you don't run out of service, you can use a temporary landline number from the installation until we have finished the portability.
6. Where to place the Fibre optic router in my house?
Here the important thing is that the engineer can insert the Fibre cable in a simple way, and that you decide where you would like it to be located. We always recommend that it is close to the TV just in case you want to connect your Smart TV.
7. Do the packages have permanency?
In the case of contracting Internet packages, whether it is Fibre or other technology, you have a 12-month permanency. In case of cancellation, a penalty of €120 (+VAT) would be charged.
On the other hand, if you unsubscribe, you have to return the router within 30 days, if you decide to keep it, the cost of it would be charged: €100 for Fibre router. (+VAT).
8. Can I change my current package to increase the speed I have contracted?
Of course, you can make the change through our customer service channel or at your nearest Populoos store. Surely one of your neighbors will attend to you.
9. What is the best Fibre and mobile offer?
We don't have a favourite. Our catalogue of Fibre and Mobile products is very large and will depend on your usage.

Wimax + Mobile
1. What is Wimax?
Wimax stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. In short, it is the substitute for Fibre cable.
2. What is the difference between Fibre optic internet and Wimax?
Wimax is the optimal technology for rural environments, scattered towns, industrial estates, dispersed towns, outskirts of large towns and, in short, places where cable technologies (Fibre optics or ADSL) do not reach or do not allow a quality service. In addition, it offers different ranges of services: Internet access, IP telephony services and the creation of virtual VLAN networks and other advanced services for companies.
3. How does Wimax Internet work?
It is a wireless technology that works by emitting and receiving radio waves through radio links located in the main repeaters and strategic places in the geography.
4. What are the advantages and disadvantages of Wimax?
Wimax is the best alternative to ADSL. It is very fast and fluid. It has good coverage. It is also very scalable, allowing you to vary the speed according to your needs. The installation consists of a discreet antenna that is very easy to install. And its price is very competitive. We have the best prices for a Wimax connection or to unify Wimax, Landline and Mobile services, and save on your bill.
As a disadvantage, we highlight the need to have direct contact with the repeater. In other words, the antenna that is installed on the façade must be oriented directly to the location that allows the connection to the Internet without there being obstacles that prevent direct vision (trees, buildings...).
5. What is the price of Wimax?
If we talk about the price, in Populoos we have different packages that adapt to the needs of each of our neighbours. From €24.90 per month, you can enjoy the Internet through Wimax technology with a speed of up to 20Mbps.

1. What happens in case of non-payment of an invoice?
Invoices not paid when due will accrue default interest equal to the legal interest of the money, the expenses caused by the return of the receipt and other administrative expenses that can amount to a maximum of 20 euros (VAT included), without prejudice to the other consequences that may arise from non-compliance, among others, the inclusion of your data in asset and credit solvency files. The application of an amount lower than the maximum does not imply an obligation for SBT to maintain it, and this may vary due to different factors, for example, recurrence of non-payment.
If, in addition, this non-payment has led to the suspension of the services of your mobile, landline or Internet line/s, the reconnection of the same/s will in turn give rise to another series of additional expenses, which will be reflected in your invoice as "Service restoration charge" for an amount of €12.40 + taxes (Tax in the Peninsula and the Balearic Islands VAT 21%, Ceuta IPSI 10%, Melilla IPSI 8% and Canary Islands IGIC 7%).
