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.
The technology profile illustrates the strength of coverage by the basic DSL, cable and HSPA technologies in Cyprus. DSL, HSPA and satellite are the only options available in rural areas at present.
Cyprus consists of one single NUTS 3 area. It reports 100% standard broadband coverage, thanks to a complete DSL network, but with no NGA coverage as of end-2011.
