Super-fast internet coming to La Gomera soon

The majority of internet users in La Gomera will have access to high-speed internet by the end of 2017. The communications company Telefonica is already in the process of installing fibre-optic cables which will bring internet speeds of up to a whopping 300 Mbps to households, giving La Gomera the fastest internet connectivity available in the world. First to benefit will be four of the six municipal areas. Valle Gran Rey will be almost completely covered with close to 3.400 connections to benefit, followed by Vallehermoso, Alajero and San Sebastian de La Gomera with well over 1.000 high-speed connections each. By the end of the coming year 57% of all connections in La Gomera will have been linked with the super-fast fibre-optic network with the rest of the island to follow later.
Afraid my ageing hardware won't be able to keep pace, though...

A bit more of useful information would be nice. Which company will be offering this? Where comes the info from? Is there any possibility to make orders upfront?

Thanks

Sorry, but I don't get your point. What's 'upfront' in this context, and 'orders' for what ?
The information comes from reliable press contacts and the media, by the way. The telecommunications infrastructure companies can be seen working on the ground.
However, I'm not an expert. Please contact your 'phone company for further details...
