Despite market liberalisation Cyprus’s telecoms market continues to be dominated by the incumbent, which is still fully-owned by the government. Improved regulatory conditions, particularly in relation to network interconnection and access, has given competing operators the confidence to invest in network infrastructure, unbundle local loops and launch competing services. This report introduces the key aspects of Cyprus’s fixed-line telecoms market, outlining the regulatory environment, major players and providing relevant operational data and financial statistics on the operators as well as the market. Cyprus is a divided country with most of the information in this report concerned only with the situation in the Greek Cypriot area.

Key developments:
CyTA’s USO obligations extended to July 2014; government agrees to financial bailout conditions, including the privatisation of CyTA; CyTA upgrades transmission capacity on the TE-North Cable System to 500Gb/s; PrimeTel lands HAWK submarine cable; regulator market data to June 2013; operators’ statistical data updates for 2013, market developments to early 2014.

Companies covered in this report include:
CyTA, OTEnet, PrimeTel
