Answer: Although the modern generation favour the mobile phone, a landline is still an essential part of life. Especially to gain access to the internet. There are many telephone companies and providers of internet connections and broadband. The most predominant is TELEFONICA.

As with any purchase - always shop around for the best provider to meet your individual internet / phone needs.  There may already be a telephone line in the property you will be living in, the previous occupants should have cancelled the active line BUT at least the installation is in place. Therefore you will need to arrange to be reconnected.

As with all utilities when you move into a property make sure all previous bills are settled / paid before you move in.
