Synopsis

The Cypriot mobile market is served by four mobile network operators. Cyta has offered mobile services under the Cytamobile-Vodafone brand since 2004 following a partner agreement with Vodafone Group, while MTN Cyprus was once part of the international MTN Group before being acquired by Monaco Telecom in mid-2018. PrimeTel added market competition after launching services in 2015 soon after the company secured mobile spectrum licences (it had offered services as an MVNO since 2011). Following the award of LTE-suitable spectrum in the 800MHz and 2600MHz bands in June 2016, the cableco Cablenet, which also offered mobile services as an MVNO, launched services over its own network in mid-2017.

Operators have successfully 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.
