The idea of a wireless network was brought to Cyprus by the founder of D.S.S. Limited some 13 years ago, but the concept was thwarted over the years by local licensing which until recently strictly prohibited the use of wireless equipment for public network distribution. Although eager to make this service available to the public, we wanted to wait until the local regulations relaxed as Cyprus entered into the EU then allowing us to use 5GHz (HiperLAN2) MiMO wireless equipment designed for professional ISP use. CyprusInternet was the first WISP in Cyprus to operate a 100% 5GHz licensed network.
Keeping Up With Technology.
Like all things technology related, wireless internet equipment is always being improved and upgraded. During 2012 & 2013 we successfully upgraded our entire network and all clients free of charge to the latest MiMO technology improving stability and throughput for all of our clients.
From our state of the art Cisco Systems and HP provisioned Network Operations Centre to our professionally installed and maintained primary peering points across the area with dual backbone links for redundancy and traffic overflow, our network is designed to be robust. Our network is carefully monitored by our monitoring system on a 10 second bases, everything from switches, routers, backbones and even end user connections are all closely monitored so we are aware when something is not performing at 100%. Our network uptime average every year has never fallen below 99.82%.
During 2009 we moved our NOC to a new property which has enabled us to install our fibre leased line and with the additional space we where able to increase our UPS storage capacity & also install a large stabilised generator so that should we experience an extended power failure, we now have the capacity to run without mains for several days.
100% Fibre Optic Bandwidth.
We are dedicated to providing a quality service & therefore our main leased lines comprise of a 1Gbit dedicated Optic Fibre leased line circuit from which we provision our 6 external connections.
Our dedicated fibre circuit has been installed to connect us directly to the Cyta's main fibre terminus at their POP in Paphos & offers the fastest bandwidth available in Cyprus. Typical on-island route times from your PC connected to our network to Cyta's NOC in Nicosia are less than 10 milliseconds and routes to the UK average at around 88 milliseconds to Telehouse in London even at peak times.
100% 5GHz (HiperLAN2) MiMO Wireless Network.
Our aim is not to become the largest Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) in Cyprus, but we intend to maintain our reputation for being the most reliable WISP in Cyprus. To achieve the greatest reliability and speed our network is built using 100% 5GHz equipment direct from the end of our WWAN right to your home or business. We were the first WISP in Cyprus to operate a 100% HiperLAN2 network.
Access to the internet from our N.O.C. is provided by one of our 6 Fiber Optic circuits offering low latency (avg. <100ms from client to London) and excellent stability. We do not allow P2P & Torrent clients to clog our nodes making your IPTV and IP Telephony stable and clear.
100% fiber optic bandwidth, 100% Gigabit network infrastructure, No proxy caching, no filtering and our hand selected routes to the EU and UK all make for smoother faster browsing. The quality Wireless 'N' router provided allows you to connect almost any device direct to the internet wirelessly.
Our support team are well trained and knowledgeable.
Whilst we openly accept that no one knows everything, amongst the support staff someone usually knows the answer to the oddest of problems.
We offer a free switch-on/switch-off service to all clients on supported plans where you can enable and disable your connection at no cost for any period of 7 days or more. If you are away and you suspend your service there are no charges whilst you are away.
