Internet in Greece: Yesterday I read the comments of two readers of iGuRu.gr, who did not agree on an issue that concerns us all. The issue was and continues to be the speed of connections in Greece.
The comments were posted on Facebook, under a post that mentioned the construction of a fiber optic that allows data transfer to the Internet at speeds that catch one petabit the second.
The first comment supported the view of the majority, that is, we do not have fast connections in Greece, while the second argued that there are many connections with fiber optics, which give what they promise.
In fact, the second comment was mentioned by a company that can offer the Internet speeds it promises to the consumer. A detail that may be completely coincidental, the author of the second comment on his Facebook profile, states that he works for this company.
Below we will have the opportunity to see through a poll what the iGuRu.gr audience thinks about the Internet connections in Greece, and the services they use, but before I would like to quote a survey conducted by Ookla and posted from Kathimerini.
However, apart from the above, it is worth mentioning that the average of all connections operating in Greece provides the user with a flow of information corresponding to 40% of the nominal value, ie the speed promised by the internet service provider.
The speeds offered by the providers in the Greek market correspond, in fact, to 1/3 of the nominal speeds, according to the report of the National Telecommunications & Post Commission (EETT).
Internet service providers promise very high speeds, using the keyword "up". But what is the real speed you have? Does it represent the amount you pay?
Below you can vote in the iGuRu.gr poll on the state of Internet connections in Greece. If you want you can add more details to the comments of this post so that they do not disappear in the Facebook timeline, and can be read by others.
