Internet Usage in Cyprus:

May 25, 2005 - Internet usage by Cypriots is below the European Union average, and businesses on the island are also lagging behind, according to figures released by Eurostats.

Based on figures for the first quarter of 2004, Eurostat says 32 percent of Cypriots between 16 and 74 years use the Internet while the EU average is at 47 per cent. Eighty-two percent of Cypriot businesses use the Internet, among the lowest EU level, which is on average 89 percent.

In Cyprus the internet is used more by men, with 36 per cent, as opposed to 28 per cent among women, a trend that exists throughout the EU member states with the exception of Finland and Estonia.

Greeks are the EU citizens that use the internet less, with only 20 per cent, but the situation in the business sector is better (87 per cent).

According to Eurostat, in most countries the internet is used more in the workplace rather than at home.

It comes as no surprise that it is more popular among youngsters. An average of 75 per cent or two thirds of people aged 16 to 24 used the internet.

E-commerce in Cyprus:

November 15, 2006 - Internet e-commerce is still small in Cyprus. Only 7% of Cypriot enterprises that use the internet actually accepted orders via the internet in 2006, although this was higher than the 5.1% reported in 2005 according to the annual Information and Communication Technologies Usage and E-Commerce in Enterprises survey.

At the same time, a parallel household survey found that only 6.7% of individuals ordered products over the internet, although this was higher than the 5.1% recorded in 2005. These individuals ordered mainly books, magazines, newspapers and e-Learning material.

Regarding e-Government, businesses are interacting more with the government online. Business using the Internet for interaction with public authorities (mainly obtaining information) increased from 39.5% in 2005 to 44.3% in 2006.

In general, computer and internet usage in business is widespread: 94.5% of enterprises used a computer in January 2006. Among small enterprises of 10-49 employees (which is around 95% of all enterprises in Cyprus) there was an increase in computer usage from 92.8% in 2005 to 93.6% in 2006, as well as in internet usage, from 82.1% in 2005 to 83.7% in 2006.

The survey on households found a significant increase (from a very low base) in Internet broadband connections, from 4.5% in 2005 to 12.1% in 2006, while the proportion with any kind of internet access from home rose from 31.7% to 36.7%.

The total percentage of households with a computer was 51.9% in 2006, while 40.9% of individuals aged 16-74 used a computer and 33.8% used the Internet during the first quarter of 2006.

Cyprus Telecommunications Market Reports

Cyprus - Key Statistics, Regulatory and Fixed Line Telecoms
Despite market liberalisation Cyprus's telecoms market continues to be dominated by the incumbent, CyTA, which is still fully-owned by the state. The government has rekindled plans to privatise CyTA as part of a wider financial bailout package. The process is expected to be completed by the end of 2015.
