CYTA Internet charges

Postby CBBB » Fri Mar 04, 2011 11:28 pm

Having noticed a CYTA advertisement on a Greek (not Cypriot) TV channel, out of curiosity I thought I would have a look at what our Government owned telecommunications authority charges in Greece compared to Cyprus. It is very interesting.

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.

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?

In which case perhaps we should get CYTA Greece to operate in the Cyprus market.

I think it’s all to do with HellasSat percentage rights because we only funded a portion of the satellite launch…

Now that Greece is in need of raising funds, why don’t they sell us a greater percentage of the bandwidth?
