The broadband market in Cyprus is developing steadily following a few years of low growth. DSL remains the most popular access platform, with cable broadband restricted to a single operator with a network concentrated in a few key towns. Despite this geographic limitation, ongoing investment in DOCSIS3.0 technology has made HFC an attractive alternative to DSL, and thus there has been significant customer migration from DSL to cable. The fibre infrastructure is still comparatively in its infancy, with the incumbent telco Cyta having lacked the resources to invest in a fibre network. However, the privatisation of the company, anticipated later in 2016, could also create a separate operator to manage networks resources and attract investors. This could in turn be a catalyst for future progress in the sector.
Alternative DSL operators have taken advantage of regulated wholesale network access, resulting in a steady fall in the incumbent's broadband market share. Growing broadband usage, supported by government policy, is also shaping Cyprus's emerging internet society and encouraging developments in e-commerce.
