Technology

The foreign residents to Andalucia and the concept of working form home has helped create a large demand for a variety of high tech services. The technology now makes it possible to keep in touch with friends and family and run a small business in any location from the comfort of sunny, southern Spain. Computers and networks with the help of Broadband connections make this possible today.

WiFi and Hot Spots are easy to find in Andalucia. Described on a discussion about the then latest technology on Radio 4, the advent of WiFi was described as lying somewhere between 'Armageddon and Utopia'.

In Andalucia the Internet plays a big part in helping business generate customers and sales leads both locally and from overseas. Most business's either have or require a good Internet presence either as a shop window or as an active lead generating source worked in to the companies overall marketing mix.

Today you can advertise a business to a worldwide audience for just one euro per day or less. An advert on the Internet works for you around the clock for a fraction of the price of traditional advertising. The key, however, remains the same: ensuring your message reaches potential clients and following through on the promises you make.

If you are travelling to Spain in the near future the chances are that you will want to keep in touch by making sure you have access to the Internet. Ease of communication is also part of the reason why so many British and Northern Europeans are moving to Spain. You can continue working just as if you were still in the UK. There has been a huge reduction in the cost of international phone calls.

Whether you have been in Spain for just a few days or for years one of the things which confuses many foreigners is telephone numbers. There is a logical system of numbering in.

Telephoning from Spain is not difficult. The international direct dial access code is 00. Dial 00 plus the country code plus the area code and phone number. (Don't forget you may need to drop an '0' before the area code) Thus a London number from a Spanish phone becomes: 00 44 208 1234.

Mobile broadband is a type of internet used for mobile phones, laptops and tablets such the iPad when there is no WiFi or landline available. It is also known as 3G or 4G internet. 4G provides internet with speeds many times faster than current WiFi internet, however it is not currently widely available in Spain.
