For the Black Sea Coast area (just inland) I do know that the village of Avren is one of the very few that has high speed connection and it is a lovely place too. If you wish I can put you in touch with someone near there.

Hi Dave,

Firstly thanks for all your efforts and kind assistance, this forum is a wealth of information. As I would be taking my UK job to BG a good quality + reliable telephone connection with broadband internet for video conferencing etc is a prerequisite so a referral of someone in Avren or similar area close to the coast would be greatly appreciated as I would prefer to centralize my property search within high speed internet areas.

Please allow me to return the favor so if you or any of the other moderators are missing any low cost items from the UK let me know and I will send you a parcel. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks! It's great to be appreciated. :D

Normally we'd jump at the chance of having something sent to us but Dave's brother is planning a visit very soon so we've given him a shopping list of things to bring with him.

The best way to help us and BE is that if you're going to buy anything online then please do so using our links - we earn commission on sales. For example, if you want to upload photos then sign up to PhotoBox using our link (free to you and commission for us), if you want to transfer currency then please consider using our link to Currency UK (again, a better deal for you than the bank will give you, and commission for us), and so on. It's these commissions which keep us going.

Again thanks for the offer and for the opportunity to remind people that it helps us if they buy through BE. It's a rare treat to be appreciated too. :D

broadband in BG

I too would like some info if anyone has any on the BB situation.

My partner and I plan to move there next summer, we both work from home using the net and require a decent BB connection (at least half meg).

Any info is absolutely great.
