PRIMETEL

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.

as i have read all the comments, i see that 99% of them are negative. of course people will have problems. i have primetel and i have no problems at all. i had cyta and i had to restart the modem all the time, i paid for 1mbps ang got maximum 600kbps. at primetel i pay for 2 mbps and never got lower than that! i believe that everyone says that primetel is not good because people only listen to negative comments. no one looks at the positive ones. of course people will have problems, there is no way u can have 30000+ clients and have all of them satisfied. I am just a satisfied customer telling my opinion about my provider. i think that more people are satisfied than dissatisfied but mostly dissatisfied people look for forums to tell their opinion!

thank you! Smiley
