Broadband Coverage in Europe in 2011 - key results for Cyprus

One of the European Union’s most ambitious targets is to make sure that all its citizens can get access to superfast broadband at home, if they choose, by 2020. A new study by broadband specialists Point Topic shows Cyprus had yet to start on that road as of the end of 2011, but it was in a good position to begin rolling out superfast soon.

As a small country with a low proportion of rural homes Cyprus enjoys almost complete coverage by standard fixed broadband and HSPA.  Rural coverage of 92% is not among the highest but this translates into less than 1,000 homes without access to broadband.

NGA, by contrast, was absent in 2011 but this promises to change rapidly in 2012 as both VDSL and cabled upgrades to Docsis 3 are rolled out.
