PRESS RELEASE - 30th May 2007

Have you got Broadband or Fraudband?

The Internet Club have just made another massive investment in Internet hardware. Their whole network backbone and infrastructure is currently being replaced at a total cost of 65,000. The new hardware will push speeds on the network from 11 Mbps to 54 Mbps.

"It was the right time for us," ..........more

In addition to this, TIC have agreed a contract for the supply and installation of a fiber optic cable, connecting them directly to Turkey and Europe.

"This is a very important development" ..........more

In the UK and the rest of Europe, fiber optic cables have been used to deliver internet for a number of years but have only recently been introduced to the TRNC.

"Users want faster speeds. There is only one way - fiber optic cable" ..........more

Data travels through a fiber optic cable at the speed of light with minimal delay. Unlimited bandwidth can be delivered at lightning speed. With the fiber optic cable as the primary source of supply and the satellite earth station as a back up, TIC is in a very strong position.

"SIMULTANEOUS Voip, downloading, surfing and UK radio" ..........more

Most internet connections are shared between users but fiber optic cable supports the delivery of uncontended (dedicated) bandwidth for fast internet on demand.

"The business community will greatly benefit from this technology" ..........more

The Internet Club have earned their reputation for good customer service by providing seven day a week support. Each Member has the personal telephone number of each of the principles of the business.

"If there is a problem, personal communication is the key" ..........more

A large community of retired ex-pats is bound to include more than its fair share of computer, internet and e-mailing novices , some, purchasing and using a computer and the internet for the first time but apparently, they needn't worry.

"It is a very exciting time at the Internet Club at the moment" ..........more

Ronnie and Paul were introduced to each other by another Internet service provider who according to them, eventually chose different priorities to those that had been promised as an incentive for them both to stay. There are no hard feelings however, because this was the catalyst that resulted in the creation of The Internet Club.

"We both consider ourselves to be very lucky in the way that we were introduced and left united with a common cause. This cause is the reason for our success and motivates us every day in our quest to become the BEST Internet service provider in Northern Cyprus. For this, we will be eternally grateful."

The Jumping Mouse!

"The other day I sent an e-mail to a friend and whilst referring to an old school pal of ours (and she was copied in on the e-mail) a "typo" (caused by my jumping mouse) changed her name into a swear word.

Why, when I am typing in Outlook, a Word document or in my on-line e-mail program, do I look up to see that the letters that I am typing are suddenly being typed somewhere else on the page, usually in the middle of another word?" ..........more
