By the end of July '03, the number of ADSL lines was 1,343,823 with Madrid and Barcelona way ahead, emphasising the gap between town and country in technological advance. (El Mundo, TVE)

Once again we thank our visitors for your interest and concern for Spain. In December the number of visits reached the 2000 level for the second month in a row, despite a considerable and understandable drop in visits over Christmas. January also began slowly, but the record for visits (December) will once again be approached. Thank you!
