This thread doesn't seem to have been updated in a long time but I thought I would add to it and "bump" it, as they say! I have used Atlas Choice in the past and was pleased with their service but on trying to book a car for September this morning I get nothing but a database server error from their...

Buying in VT

Hi, I bought a house in Resen ( about 15km north of VT) about five years ago and in the end I used Address, one of the mainstream Bulgarian estate agents. I would heartily recommend their services as I was very impressed with the time and care they gave to me whilst I was choosing a property, from f...

UK phones in Bulgaria

Hi, A lot (most) UK phones will work fine in Bulgaria, all they need is pins 2 and 5 (when connected to a UK Master socket) wiring to the two wire Bulgarian line. Having said that, I have now had a phone line on order for 8 months and BTK have been utterly pathetic in their total lack of interest as...

If you can get a line installed!!

This all assumes that those nice people at BTK are even able to fit you with a phone line! I have been trying since Christmas 2006 to get a phone line installed at my house in Resen (north of VT) and so far I still have no line and no idea when they will be able to fit one! I can only guess that wha...

VT

Hi Ronnie, Cheers I will try to find your place when we are out there and pop in! Thanks for letting me know about Andres, I'm surprised as when I was out there last year he seemed to have a fair sized bunch of Brits there most nights. I'll try to find pepies instead! By the way If I had read your p...

Others in Resen?

Thanks again Ronnie. So you have been in Resen for a year or so? How do you find life there and whats the access like by car in winter when it snows? Can you still drive to VT OK? I had a look at your website, congratulations, it's all looking good. Are there many other Brits buying or living in Res...

Net Speed

Hi Ronnie, Thanks for the rapid reply! What sort of connection speed do you get on the wireless connection and might I ask what sort of monthly cost is involved (and set up if a special tranmitter/receiver other than a standard WiFi router is needed)? Thanks again and sorry to ask more questions! Mark

Varna & VT and Tenterden

Hi Hoowster, thanks for the welcome... might well come and look you up with a bottle or two while I'm out there if I can find out where you are!

I'll pop into Andres in VT while I am out there in the last week of August too and see who I can bump into.

Cheers,

Hi Ronnie,

I wonder, do you know if broadband/ADSL Internet connections are available yet in Resen?

I assume there is no cable TV/Internet there but wondered if the local exchange is up to broadband yet or if any plans for that have been mentioned?

Cheers,
Mark

Phones in Bulgaria

Modern digital (DECT) cordless telephones don't mind if they are connected to a digital or an analogue exchange, as the line conditions they see are much the same anyway. Some phones need an extra component to be present on a two wire connection and one way to add this is to add an extension lead wi...
