Telefonica Land Lines

I have recently been told by a Telefonica engineer (in Catalunya, so I appreciate that it may be different in Andalusia) that from January 2021 Telefonica will no longer be maintaining land lines. I know they really don't like people having them in rural areas, but when the electricity goes down it ...

Re: Quantis/eurona

Thanks Gerry- we did call Eurona and it was legit. The 2 guys came on time (extraordinary) without wearing gloves or masks and had no real idea about social distancing and seemed vaguely affronted when we backed away. Had to disinfect everywhere they went, including my desk, but they upgraded the so...

Quantis/eurona

We have had a call (in these times!) from Eurona, allegedly, who want to send out a chap to upgrade our satellite injection tomorrow. We are not sure if this is a scam or genuine (would be great if the latter since it isn’t coping very well with the increased use of people working from home) but I w...

Re: Tax on second hand cars

Thanks for that all. I will check with the dealer before I buy. Much appreciated.

Tax on second hand cars

Does anyone know whether a buyer of a second hand car from a dealer (and not a particular) has to pay the transfer tax? I have read in various places that if you buy from a bona fide dealer and pay IVA on the car (they all say the price includes IVA) then there is no impuesto patrimonial to pay, but...

Re: Eurona satellite option

Sorry Bbob, was rather overtaken with work. yes, the slow down happened after we exceeded the limit. That said, in the last week the speeds have been absolutely terrible- less than 1Mb. Quantis have finally conceded that it is a problem with the satellite and in theory are working on it. My guess is...

Re: Eurona satellite option

We have Quantis (now owned by Eurona I think) satellite and the 100GB per month download and use IPTV (because Movistar won't give us 3G and there is no other mobile signal, WIMAX or anything else- we are in deepest darkest Catalunya these days). We used to have problems around the end of the month ...

Insurance for Old car

Can anyone recommend a car insurance company in Spain for an old (older than 25 years) car? Linea Directa won't do it and I am struggling to find an insurer who will. It is a 1970s Citroen Dianne, Spanish registered, which my brother has had brought back to life (God knows why) and he is keen to get...

Smarty DNS

Anybody else having a problem with Now TC and BB Iplayer using Smarty DNS? It was working fine until yesterday afternoon, but now whenever a programme is chosen on IPlayer it just flips straight back to the Now TV home page, which is a bloody nuisance. I have tried a different DNS from Smarty's webs...

Re: Iberbanda Wimax

Sorry not to have picked this up earlier. We are now in Catalunya (mmmm, just at the mo) but we have Quantis Satellite broadband. It is not bad and when it is working well (ie when it is not raining) it can get speeds of up to 20Mbps but when it is bad it is about 1Mbps or even less. Watching tv at ...

Re: NO IPTV from 1st July

Thanks for your input Gerry- I shall have to investigate Intelsat 907 if the IPTV goes (what size dish does it require- or maybe it doesn't?). I have tried changing the DNS on my TP Link router in which I use a Movistar sim card, but it is completely greyed out, so that is not possible. Patricia, un...

Re: NO IPTV from 1st July

Gerry you are absolutely right- it is a satellite router and from Eurona (now part of Tooway) and you cannot change the DNS - same issue with any other router connected to it (I have several). Gerry how do you watch UK tv or do you not bother? Thanks for the input so far and if anyone has a potentia...

Re: NO IPTV from 1st July

We unfortunately can only get satellite download where we now are (Girona province since you ask- having moved north about 18 months ago) and I simply cannot change the DNS on the router. Until recently we had a Devolo Dlan powerline solution through which we ran the TV, which would allow a change t...

Re: ITV

Thanks so much for that- we have moved within Spain and it is a Spanish registered car and always has been. Will try making an appointment online and tipping up and see where we get to.

ITV

Does anyone know whether you can make an appointment for an ITV if you don't have the piece of paper reminding you to have one? We have moved and the post is not coming through and so I have not had the ITV notification. I am also a month late (because I didn't get the reminder). Furthermore, having...
