The plans also mean that 4G mobile connectivity should be available in 2015 at no extra cost to Telefonica customers. The Mayor of Manilva commented that  “New technologies and operation is essential for the progress and development of SMEs and the Townhall, while also providing a service to the public on their personal devices. With this agreement Manilva will be at the leading edge of available technology”

The benefit to individuals living or visiting the area on holiday will be tremendous. Since Sky has ceased to provide terrestrial UK channels the majority of TV is viewed via the internet. This will allow faster downloads of films and programmes as well as a superior quality of live TV channels. Businesses will hope to gain the most benefit allowing them to operate quickly and efficiently resulting in a much more productive and enhanced service for consumers.

The International Monetary Funds ‘January Multi Country Report’ has reported positive news for the Spanish property market. The report concludes that property prices in Spain, Ireland, Denmark and the Netherlands ‘have come to, or may be near their lowest point’ It reports that the Spanish and Irish markets were the worst affected due to considerably more properties being built. Declining prices have been compounded by a standstill in the construction industry and high levels of unemployment. This report echoes the sentiments of the Bank of Spains conclusions that the adjustment in the Spanish property market has now entered a period of stabilisation.

The CIS, Spains Centre of Sociological Studies has also reported that the  Spanish property prices will become stabilised in 2015 and they have noted that the majority of Spanish consumers share the same opinion.  Th report concluded that over 50% thought that the prices would be stable and over 26% thought that prices will rise. Of those surveyed 3.5% said that they plan to buy a property in Spain this year. The CIS survey also shows a significant increase in Spanish consumer confidence generally, both in regard to the current situation as well as future expectations.
