Telefonica is the sole provider of telephone lines in Spain, although other companies do offer calls at competitive rates.
If your Spanish property is not new, you will need to have the existing Telefonica account transferred into your name. To do this, you must phone from the number you wish to take over, provide your details and make payment arrangements. You will also need to give the passport or NIE number of the previous account holder. To reconnect or install a new line, call Telefonica on1004 to ask how to proceed.
Mobile phones are widely available in Spain and all networks cover around 90% of the country. Check tariffs before choosing a provider as rates do vary. Beware of some very inflated ‘pay as you go’ call charges.
Numerous Internet servers are available in Spain. Many will offer discounted services, as competition is fierce. Research is advisable to find the best deals.
