CABLENET

Cablenet is the only Cable TV and Cable Internet carrier in Cyprus. Currently the coverage is limited only to several urban areas. The difference between Cable Internet and ADSL is that unlike ADSL (I-choice, Primetel) that connect you to the internet via the telephone line that is already installed in your home, you connect to Cablenet with a separate coaxial cable that is installed to your home once you purchase the service. Therefore, connecting to the Internet through Cablenet is independent of your telephone carrier. Cablenet also offers an ADSL product which is available at more locations.

purchased talk/surf/view with 4mb down/ 512 k up. Downloading with 500KB/s uploading with 70KB/s. the telephone line is via cable other than pstn... much clearer than cytas pstn service.

To the guy that asked for equipment: they give you a cable modem and with 30 euros i think you can buy a wireless router(if u dont have yout own)

reviewer: efrem

yeah, i have a Linksys wireless router for my network. How the cable modem is connected to the TV set? a user posted in the forum that is connected with HDMI, however the cable modem doesn't have HDMI output.

reviewer: efrem

when they will make my connection i would do a video review on cablenet.
HD is extra, you pay 100 euros more, 50 for the HD decoder (which money you get back if you stopped the service) and 50 for the fee (deposit basically).
They currently offer only 2-3 HD channels, which i bet they consume you precious bandwidth, and is only free by December (and then you must pay premium fee) after all if that are applied to the equation I conclude the they do not worth it for the premium price, then DONT WATCH HD, DOWNLOAD HD AND THEN WATCH THEM!

I'll be back with some vids on cablenet by the end of the week.

HD channels (or any other channels on cable) do not consume any bandwidth from your data or telephony service, since TV services are using a different part of the spectrum than data or telephony services. This is the main difference from DSL, and this is the very reason that with cable you have the ability to view as many channels as you want (including HD) simultaneously using a single connection...Welcome to the world of cable!
