In the article below we provide help and information on telephone calls, call rates and providers of cheap phone calls within Spain.
We have identified a need for information on cheap telephone calls for these three different scenarios:
1. Mostly our information covers people living in spain who want to know all about the telecom providers in Spain that you can join. People living in Spain want to know who provides the cheapest phone calls from Spain to the UK.
In other words which company offers the lowest prices for making telephone calls within Spain and internationally to the UK and the rest of Europe as well as the USA and the rest of the world?
The good news is that although typically you will have a land line with Telefonica there are many other options and we compare the market and provide different tariffs and rates for your information.
We especially compare rates for making cheap mobile phone calls from Spain to the UK should it not be possible to get a Spanish land line which is quite common in rural areas.
2. We are often being asked by people who are coming on holiday to Spain how they can make cheap telephone calls back to the UK or United Kingdom. Most people visiting Spain for a short period will have a mobile telephone therefore we concentrate on making cheap mobile calls from Spain to the UK as well is looking at other options such as phone cards you can buy at kiosks and shops.
3. We also provide help if you are looking to make cheap phone calls to Spain from the United Kingdom. We assume you have relatives and friends in Spain and you wish to make cheap telephone calls to Spain without it costing you a small fortune.
For everyone who has moved from the U.K. to Spain it comes of something as a shock that although we earn a lot less making a living, the cost of living in everyday life can be a lot more. There is no SKY TV here where you can get a package with internet, phone calls and digital TV for €19 monthly but in this article we will try to look at some alternatives to get people cheap phone calls in Spain and cheap international calls.
If you live in Spain the bad news is that you can only get a land line installed or provided by Telefonica.
However the good news is that you don’t have to use Telefonica for your telephone calls. Now Telefonica no longer has a monopoly there are a number of competing cheap telephone call companies you can use and in doing so you will save yourself a small fortune on your Spanish telephone bills.
Most people who have moved to Spain will want cheap telephone calls back to their home country. Therefore most people living in Spain will want to know who provides the cheapest telephone rates to the United Kingdom (i.e. England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) or the cheapest phone calls to Europe or the USA.
We live in Spain too and so we researched all the low cost phone companies. Being English we were especially keen on the rates to phone England from Spain although obviously we also make a lot of phone calls within Spain so it was important to look at the rates for local and national calls in Spain too.
+34 is the country calling code (also known as dialing code) assigned to Spain by the International Telecommunication Union. All of the country’s telephone numbers are also designated under the Telecommunications Act 9/2014, created by the Comisión Nacional de la Competencia (CNMC). You can also dial 0034 for calls to Spain.
Our favourite provider of cheap and low-cost telephone calls in Spain (we are customers ourselves) Europa Network provide:
The cheapest and lowest phone calls in Spain – and that’s guaranteed.
In other words, the call charges and rates are currently the cheapest in Spain. If later on someone else undercuts the price then they will beat it.
