My daughter is shotly moving to spain permantly from UK. At the moment she is with Freeserve as ISP. Can anyone advise what she needs to do, if anything,regarding email address, change of ISP or any other problems she might encounter. Thanks,Meshuga.
Telefonica run a good adsl service 24 7 free router with four connectors, free email accounts, webspace etc for 39 euros a month, but you have to set up phone line first,"Touch of the manyana syndrome". Telefonica speak English, but adsl co only Spanish. Best to pay them to set up unless she is fluent and i mean fluent in Spanish.
If freeserve let her keep her email addy she can use it anywhere.
Many good ISPs here - my current favourites Tiscali click here and Ya click here Both do ADSL with free modems, and simple DIY installation. Ya have AV and anti-spam included.
For dial-up pay as you go accounts, beware many providers now only do Web-mail. Tiscali definately the best here.
She can access the freeserve email for her incoming mail - but bear in mind Freeserve will lapse after a period if you don't log-on to the account.
Telephone connections are different, but a new cable is easy to get when she arrives.
Power sockets are different (though voltage is 220V so no problem there). It's a good idea to bring a connector strip for all the UK sockets, then geta Spanish Schuko plug put on when she gets here. Don't be tempted to use the truly awful adapters.
