ADSL is the most widespread broadband technology in Cyprus, available in most urban and sub-urban areas, with multiple providers offering packages that range from 512 kbit/s to 32 Mbit/s. Cable broadband is also available in some urban locations (Nicosia, Larnaca and Limassol) with speeds up to 100 Mbit/s. Many wireless networks have also recently appeared to serve a growing market niche.

DETAILS

Internet penetration in Cyprus reached a 95% rate by the end of 2014. Ongoing investment in DOCSIS3.0 technology may encourage churn from DSL networks in the cable footprint areas, given the relatively slow speed of current DSL options. Alternative DSL operators have taken advantage of regulated wholesale network access. Several regulatory measures, particularly in relation to network interconnection and access, have given competing operators the confidence to invest in network infrastructure, unbundle local loops and launch competing services. Internet access with at least 30 Mbps for all households and businesses is expected to be achieved by 2017, aiming at the target of 50% coverage with at least 100 Mbps as recommended by DAE (Digital Agenda for Europe).

TELECOMS MARKET

Cyprus’s telecoms sector continues to be dominated by the incumbent, CyTA, which is still fully-owned by the state. Nevertheless, its delayed privatisation, which will likely cause substantial changes in the market, is expected to be completed by the end of 2015. The broadband market in Cyprus remains undeveloped by regional standards, with DSL remaining the most popular platform and cable broadband restricted to a single operator serving only a few key towns.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT

The area of the Republic of Cyprus under government control has a market economy dominated by the service sector, which accounts for four-fifths of GDP. Tourism, financial services, and real estate have traditionally been the most important sectors. Cyprus has been a member of the European Union (EU) since May 2004 and adopted the euro as its national currency in January 2008. The economy tipped into recession in 2009 as the ongoing global financial crisis and resulting low demand hit the tourism and construction sectors. An overextended banking sector with excessive exposure to Greek debt added to the contraction. Following numerous downgrades of its credit rating, Cyprus lost access to international capital markets in May 2011. In July 2012, Cyprus became the fifth eurozone government to request an economic bailout program from the Troika (i.e. the European Commission, European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund.) The bailout triggered a two-week bank closure and the imposition of capital controls that were completely withdrawn in April 2015. As with other EU countries, the Troika conditioned the bailout on passing financial and structural reforms and privatizing state-owned enterprises. Despite downsizing and restructuring, the Cypriot financial sector throughout 2014 remained burdened by the largest stock of non-performing loans (NPLs) in the euro-zone.

INCUMBENT OPERATOR

The incumbent operator, CyTA, has been dominating the market in Cyprus for decades. A privatisation process is going on as a part of a bailout package for Cyprus’ economy and is expected to be completed by the end of 2015. Proposed legislation provides a road map on how Cyta will turn private and provides a formula of choices for its employees. According to this privatisation plan, the government will create a new company that will initially be 100% state owned and take on the services and assets of Cyta. At a later stage, strategic investors will be invited to buy the company. Meanwhile, Cyta provides a broad range of services and facilities for voice and data applications in both fixed and mobile telephony. Particular emphasis is placed on the provision of value added services, such as content/multimedia.
