Despite the liberalisation of Cyprus's telecom sector, the market overall continues to be dominated by the incumbent, Cyta, which is still fully-owned by the state. The government has rekindled plans to privatise Cyta as part of a wider financial bailout package. The process is expected to be completed sometime in 2016, with legislation to this effect having been before parliament in December 2015. 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 and providing updated operational and financial data on the major operators and the market as a whole. Cyprus is a divided country with most of the information in this report concerned only with the Greek Cypriot area.
