Snail’s Pace Internet in Northern Cyprus
By Chris Elliott…….
How frustrating is it when you are looking at Youtube videos and the sound track spits and splutters and a load icon appears to tell you what you know already, that it’s trying to load more.
If you have internet TV no doubt you will have chosen channels only to hear a sound track but have no picture to view or if you are really lucky have a picture that ghosts or breaks up spoiling your viewing pleasure with a kaleidoscope display of coloured somthings.
Perhaps you can upgrade your internet package or even change to a new Internet Service Provider but if they are truly successful and growing their business then they may be tempted to cap your bandwidth at peak times so more customers can enjoy their service.
Try using the internet and try to cope when you cannot load emails or worse still view them because your internet signal is breaking up. Be really happy with your service when you are trying to upload or download pictures and videos and you may as well go for a walk while you are waiting for something to happen.
Yes it’s all very frustrating and we even read of people on the social media having problems with their telephones as well. Come bad weather and we can find other reasons for signal disruption. It’s often claimed that all internet traffic from Northern Cyprus goes through TTNETT in Turkey and perhaps this can also be a problem area.
No doubt in time we may see improvements through technology of the internet service and when we see the “Project of the Century which is the water pipeline from Turkey near to completion, perhaps we just need to be patient with a snail’s pace internet on occasions for a little longer!!!
