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.

Παιδιά οι άνθρωποι είναι για τα πανηγύρια.
Είμαι 2 μήνες συνδρομητής και το έχω σκυλομετανιώσει.
Αρχικά είχαν μπλοκαρισμένα τα p2p και κάναν 1 βδομάδα να το παραδεχτούν αφού έπαιρνα καθημερινά και τους έκραζα.
Μετά μου είπαν να κάνω υπομονή γιατί κάνουν αναβάθμηση του δικτύου η οποία ολοκληρώθηκε μετά απο ένα μήνα .
Εκεί που είπα δοξασι ο θεός λειτουργούν όλα τι το ήθελα κράτησε μονο μί βδομαδα.Τις τελευταίες 2 βδομάδες δε δουλεύει καθόλου το skype to messenger ότι έχει σχέση με voip και εννοειται ότι δε μπορώ να παίξω online game ούτε για αστειο.Εκείνο που με εκνευρίζει αφάνταστα είναι οτι ποτέ δε βλέπουν να υπάρχει προβλημα μέχρι που τους έστειλα ενα trace της γραμμης μου και φαινόταν να έχω ping με την wavespeed στη Λευκωσία απο 20-1200 (to λεγόμενο jitter)αυξομίωση της καθυστέρησης.
Απο εκείνη τι στιγμή και μετά μου είπαν ότι έχει εντοπιστεί το πρόβλημα και θα διορθωθεί.
Τα τελευταία νέα μόλις χθες ήταν ότι θα είναι όλα εντάξει σε 10 μέρες.
Απο μία γρήγορη έρευνα που έκανα στο internet για τα καλωδιακά δίκτυα κοιτάξτε τι βρήκα!!!
If and when you report a JITTER problem to your ISP, they will usually insist that you have a great connection, good signal, and great bandwidth. However, the real issue is congestion which creates high JITTER - the first level rep (CSR) usually does not understand what JITTER is. You may have to call a few times before your link/segment can be upgraded.

In other words, in the case of Cable, they will have to upgrade your neighbourhood network by moving customers to different (new?) cables to spread out the usage. This can take a few months (3-6), and may also depend on how many other customers report the problem!

Similarly, with DSL, they need to add more DSLAM equipment to handle the bottleneck at that point (although this rarely occurs).
Πολύ φοβάμαι ότι μάλλον είναι η πικρή αλήθεια άρα σιγά σιγά πρέπει όλοι να τη κάνουμε με ελαφριά πηδηματάκια.
Απο οτι ίσως καταλάβατε έιμαι καλαμαράς είμαι 7 χρόνια στη Κύπρο αγαπάω το νησί είμαι μια χαρα εδώ αλλά ρε παιδιά ΕΛΕΟΣ με αυτή τη κατάσταση με το Internet.Ολες οι εταιριες είναι για τον π....ο
Οταν είχα έρθει το 2001 είχα πάθει πλάκα με το 1 mgbit γιατί στην Ελλαδα είχα 56κ.
Μετά από 7 χρόνια στιν Ελλάδα έχουν 24Μβιτ με 30 Ευρω και μεις .....
Τελως πάντων συγνώμη αν κούρασα και αν ενόχλησα κάποιους απλά εκφραζω την αγανάκτηση ενός άρρωστου gamer που δε μπορει με κανένα τρόπο να παιξει τα αγαπημένα του παιχνίδια online oi περισσοτεροι με καταλαβαινετε ελπίζω.
Θεόδωρος.

do you use a wireless router on your own attached to your cable modem?
I have a Linksys router my self and everything works all right
I believe You should check your Touchstone Status on your own:  http://192.168.100.1/phy.htm
and see the values of SNR/DB which means the signal loss e.c.t
If you get smaller values that this:
Downstream
    Freq/Power:    700.000 MHz    6 dBmV    
    Signal to Noise Ratio:     35 dB    
    Modulation:   QAM256   
Upstream
    Freq/Power:   36.000 MHz    45 dBmV    
     Channel Type:    DOCSIS 2.0 (ATDMA)   
     Symbol Rate:    5120 kSym/sec

Contact cablenet and told them to install an amplifier on your premises.
I have an amplifier/splitter (box) installed on my rooftop but is not in use (turned off the signal comes pass-thru) since i got good signal. Cable guys told me if any other resident of my building want cablenet (currently i am the only subscriber in the building)  they would use the amplifier/splitter in order to split the one cable into 2 and more.

Φίλε το δίκτυο τους έιναι ανεπαρκές 2 μήνες παιδεύομαι και έχω πάρει 300 τηλεφωνα.
Δεν έχω μόνο εγω πρόβλημα έχω βρει και άλλους χρήστες με τα ίδια προβλήματα και χειρότερα .
Σταμάτησα να ασχολούμαι μαζί τους έτσι και αλλιως δε πρόκειται να ξαναπάρουν σεντ από μένα.
Αλλαξα ήδη εταιρία...
