If you're in the commune of Auribeau-sur-Siagne, the postal code is 06810.**************

Thanks, very useful replies,  only prob I have is that I don't have the postal code for the property,  I guess becasue it hasn't been finished yet.

Yes, unfortunately you have to pay the line rental to France Telecom, I don't know of any way round that, unless you use a satellite.  Mike, whose contributed to this thread, will probably have more ideas about this than le, though...

With Free do you still have to pay France Telecom for an adsl line?

That your area can have DSL does not mean that a given property necessarily can (a disgruntled punter writes). However, France Télécom is doing a fairly good job of rolling out DSL - understandably, as deemand is high.

As for advice on the supplier: I say wait until you're here, as "later this year" can be a very long time in ISP-land.

To find out if you have broadband in your area go to http://www.francetelecom.com , then Tout sur l'ADSL, then l'ADSL Chez vous. Then you can enter the postcode of the area and it will tell you if you have ADSL in your area.

For a provider, I use free.fr (www.free.fr) and find them excellent.
