3G not working abroad

I've just arrived in Spain and mobile data is not working on my iPhone. I have plenty of data allowance (18GB left for the month). My phone says it is on the Movistar network. Texts are working fine. I can see the 3G symbol in the top right corner but when I try to visit a web page or use any app that uses the internet it cannot connect. I have tried restarting the phone, putting it on and off airplane mode, turning mobile data on and off, turning roaming on and off. None of these things worked. Can anyone help?

Change your data apn to "mobile.o2.co.uk"
