ADSL NETWORK / ADSL PLATFORM / INTERNET SERVICE PROVIDER
PrimeTel is a relatively new player in the telecommunications sector of Cyprus. It is currently the main competitor of the semi-state owned CYTA.
PrimeTel platform coverage
Primetel has partnered with Electricity Authority of Cyprus (EAC) to create a fiber optic network that is currently utilized by their ADSL2+ platform. At the moment the PrimeTel platform coverage is limited to the urban centers and a few suburban areas. To find out whether your establishment is covered by PrimeTel you can enter your telephone number in a form at the PtimeTel website or you can call PrimeTel at the phone number 133.
PrimeTel "triple play" services and ISPs
Unlike the DSL Access (i-choice) platform where the user subscribes to the platform, to the ISP, to Digital TV and for a phone line separately, in the case of the PrimeTel platform all of the above services are bought and paid to the ISP with a single monthly bill. PrimeTel has its own ISP but other independent ISPs utilize the Primetel platform as well.
The table below lists the ADSL packages offered by PrimeTel. The costs indicated below are all inclusive and include the rental of the phone line(s), the fee for the PrimeTel platform as well as the fee for the ISP.
