4 mbps 'upload'

Postby Transmitter_Man » Thu Feb 13, 2014 12:57 pm

A question for the brain trust.

I'm going to be requiring a reliable and 24/7, well at least 12/7 4 meg upload (video streaming) and would like to know if there is anyone worth considering other than CYTA?

I believe most isp's probably offer this level of service but other than a sat service I imagine most everyone runs on CYTA's backbone, or am I wrong?

Cost is also an important factor together with guarantee of service.

Any thoughts.

Thanks.

Cablenet if they cover your area would defintely be cheaper and give a good service.

Hi CBBB,

Thanks. I was aware of Cablenet.

I think I'll talk to them and find out some more.

Thank you again.

4 mbps upload is offered only by cablenet for home users and you have to pay over €75 per month for it... and cablenet is available mostly in the centers of cities and some subs. And they will NOT give you any guarantee that you will get 4mbps up 24/7. Otherwise you will need some business plan from cyta or primetel because their home plans have just 768kbps upload. If you want a guaranteed 4mbps upload you will have to pay a lot of money!

I use Cyta with 32mbps down and 4mbps up. I had 32mbps/768kbps for about 6 months before noticing hidden away on the Cyta website that you can upgrade to 4mbps. Costs something like €11 extra a month. I did it all online and it was working only a few hours later.

Note I can only receive Cyta where I am, but almost all of the time speeds are maxed out. I only have a home user package but use it a lot (I work from home with a 9 hour a day VPN link to a UK business I work for). I changed from Cyta to Primetel when I lived in Limassol several years ago but (several routers tested) found it to lose connection a lot (once or twice a day) compared to Cyta (at the minute it's more like once every few months). Which is important for what I do.

Cheers
