Communications in Spain
Spain's postal service is efficient and modern, with offices throughout the country.
The main telephony service provider in Spain is Telefonica. All Spanish telephone numbers have nine digits. Area codes are included within the nine digit number.
Dialling code 0034. Emergency calls: 112.
Voice over Internet Protocol
VoIP is a new technology which allows users to verbally communicate through their computer. Essentially a telephone call made using the internet, VoIP is becoming increasingly more common in the business world due to its low costs, and easy set-up and maintenance.
Forget installation engineers and phone number changes, as long as you have a broadband connection, you can use VoIP any time, any where.
For businesses, this software is sure to eventually phase out the traditional phonecall. For as low as 4p for local and national calls, the economical potential is vast. With international calls often even less than that, VoIP is perfect if you are prone to long-distance telecommunication, or have offices, clients, partners, etc, overseas. What's more, calls made between VoIP users are typically free all you pay for is the standard internet service.
Internet usage in Spain is lower than in the rest of Europe. Around a third of the total population are connected. However, the percentage of broadband connections is higher in Spain than in other European countries. The government is trying to encourage Wi-Fi as a way of connecting rural areas to the internet. Telefonica, among others, has a choice of packages.
