EETT promotes the first broadband coverage map of Greece with HYPERION

March 21, 2013

EETT promotes the creation of the first digital map of broadband coverage in Greece and invites
ADSL or VDSL subscribers to participate in
HYPERION, an innovative,
reliable and easy to use “System for Performance Evaluation of Broadband Connections.” With
HYPERION, at, the subscribers can measure, control and simultaneously
compare the performance, actual speed and the qualitative characteristics of the broadband
connection by geographic region.

HYPERION, subscribers

– measure, with the NDT tool, the actual access speeds when downloading and uploading data,
response time and packet loss in a particular geographic area and time (e.g., low speeds during
peak hours). Also, they compare the speed they really enjoy by calculating the maximum speed their
connection can theoretically support, depending on their distance from the nearest local

– Control, with the Glasnost tool, if the provider restricts selected services preventing
optimal use of speed.

HYPERION was developed
by EETT, using as a base the platform of the Measurement Lab Partnership (M-Lab). Following the
M-Lab guidelines, the
HYPERION is available by
EETT in an open source form that can be exploited by other regulatory authorities or bodies that
have already expressed interest.

Since protecting the rights of consumers is a top priority, EETT via
HYPERION aims to favor
transparency in the subscriber-provider relationship, consumer protection from unfair practices and
equal access to competitive fixed-line broadband.
