Making the best of the island’s geographical location, Cyta has developed an extensive submarine fibre optic cable network linking Cyprus with neighboring countries such as Greece, Israel, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt and, by extension, with the rest of the world.

Particular emphasis is placed on the provision of value added services, such as content/multimedia via the Internet which, by all accounts, will be the dominant business activity of the next decade.
Following the liberalization of telecommunications in Cyprus, Cyta faces the challenge of the convergence of telecommunications, information technology and multimedia, as well as that brought about by changes to the social, legal and political environment, especially since Cyprus became a full member of the European Union.

Cyta was the first organization in Cyprus to be assessed in accordance with the excellence model of the European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM) and to be awarded the highest five-star “Recognized for Excellence” ranking. Furthermore, it is the largest organization within the broader state sector in Cyprus to have obtained ISO 9001:2000 Quality Certification.
