COMPUTERS, INTERNET & WEB PAGE INFO
For those of you who wish to have the Internet here in Spain, it's not as easy as you think! The good news is that we have fostered a number of very savvy and reliable sources to help you "connect".
There are different methods to connect to the Internet:
ASDL (analogue but faster)
WI-FI (wireless - internal)
GPRS* (uses mobile phone technology)
3G* (also leverages mobile phone technology - coming soon...)
*This technology is recommended if you do not wish to have a landline, or for areas that are not covered by Telefonica; or rarely use the Internet for anything other than e-mail.
More on Internet options: Polansky & Associates can find you sources for both new and second hand computers, including laptops & desktop computers.
We can also assist in obtaining most of the above Internet connections, or even have a web page designed for you (for those of you who might be moving out to Spain to start a business).
Stop by and talk to us about your specific needs and we can help you maintain touch with loved ones back home - and get you surfing quickly!
LAND LINES / FIXED PHONES
Over the last few years a number of clients have expressed the need to have a landline telephone installed. We have therefore contacted Telefonica with regards to what options are available and found out some key information.
Therefore, if you would like a landline installed, could you please fill out the following important details below and have them ready for when you call "1004" to request the landline. They do speak English but if you prefer we can assist you with this.
