Bycopel is the Arvorec name for Teiliteacs, a videotex service which allows access to various categories of services, such as a phone directory (which is free), mail-order retail companies, airship or ferry ticket purchases, information services, databases and message boards. Although invented and developed in Ireland, it has seen its widest application in the Armorican Isles.

The word is a portmanteau of byco- an Arvorec prefix denoting small size and pel, the Arvorec word meaning "far", which is the first element of the Arvorec words for "television" (peldherchyn) and "telephone" (pellavaryth).
