The Cypriot mobile market is served by three mobile network operators, including the two established players Cytamobile-Vodafone and MTN Cyprus which were joined by a third operator, PrimeTel, in 2015 soon after the company secured mobile spectrum. Having served as an MVNO since 2011, PrimeTel became a full MNO, launching 3G services by March 2015 and LTE services in the following May. Thus far the operator has only a small market share, but it has placed greater competitive pressure on other players. Operators have focussed on lifting ARPU by encouraging prepaid subscribers to migrate to postpaid plans and by upgrading networks and technologies to make better use of mobile data services.

This report provides an overview of Cyprus's mobile market, covering a range of voice and data services, regulatory developments, and technologies. It also provides a variety of key financial and operating statistics.
