Cablenet Communication Systems is a privately owned company that offers telecommunication and entertainment services for the retail market and provides a full range of telecommunication services for the corporate market. Cablenet is the alternative provider with the largest international capacity in Cyprus. Cablenet currently owns 7.5 Gbit/s of bandwidth on Minerva, the only fully redundant submarine cable system that serves Cyprus.

Working intensively and discretely, Cablenet has built a remarkable telecommunications network, both in Cyprus as well as internationally.

Cablenet’s backbone optical fibre network within Cyprus is fully redundant and interlinks the four major cities of Cyprus – Nicosia, Limassol, Larnaca and Paphos – both at Ethernet (IP) level as well as native SDH. Within cities Cablenet operates a wholly owned pioneering Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) cable network (Next Generation Networks – NGNs). This network has enormous capabilities for the provision of video, data and voice services, with data connection speeds of up to 100 Mbit/s download and up to 30 Mbit/s upload per channel. With the new DOCSIS 3.0 technology that has been implemented in 2010 the maximum capacity will increase to 400 Mbit/s. This network furthermore has the capability of delivering multiple television channels, as well as telephony over a single cable connection. The network’s potential stretches beyond traditional TV broadcasting: Cablenet was the first company in Cyprus that offered High Definition Television (HDTV). Finally, pioneering in broadband connectivity, Cablenet is the company that first offered Internet connection speeds of 10 Mbit/s, 20 Mbit/s and 40 Mbit/s at very affordable prices.

Abroad, Cablenet has secured its international capacity on ‘Minerva’, the only fully redundant submarine cable system that serves Cyprus. In addition, Cablenet has become the first telecoms company in Cyprus that is interconnected with international providers with IPv6 protocol. Having interconnections to London, Moscow, Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt and other EU cities over multiple Gigabit Ethernet rings, Cablenet can provide end-to-end MPLS circuits, IPLCs, and other types of International Dedicated Channels to and from Cyprus.
