I think the two trucks at the bottom are pumping in liquid nitrogen! :lol:


Really nice photo!

... and look at the diameter of those pipes at the bottom pumping in propellants, .... but could be water pipes, cos at launch they use loads and loads and loads of water to dampen the vibrations at lift-off.

Just checked CYTA UK prices, activation £31.30 and monthly charge for 12Mbps is £15.30.

http://www.cytauk.com/cytauk/page.php?p ... 4/34/67/68

The price differences are more than likely due to the very high cost of their local staff, compared to Greece and the UK.

Hang on a minute, we are in the EU, we should be able to buy services from CYTA in Greece or the UK. Sounds like an email to the Competition Commissioner!

I suspect the reason is the cost of international bandwidth. We need to connect with the rest of Europe with undersea cable which is quite long.

In Cyprus just for internet at the maximum speed of 12Mbps/768Kbps the installation charge is €78.59 and the monthly fee is €72.90.

https://www.cytawebshop.cyta.com.cy/Ord ... aspx?id=14

In Greece for internet at there maximum speed of 24Mbps/1024Kbps the installation charge is €30 and the monthly fee is €18. I won't go in to additional things that are offered in this package.

So can someone explain why we who own the bastards get totally screwed, whereas the Greeks reap the benefits of us being overcharged?
