30 Mar 2015

Cypriot state-owned operator Cyta has disclosed that it is currently in the process of deploying its Long Term Evolution (LTE) network. The cellco revealed that it had selected an equipment contractor in November 2014 and is now building a 4G network with nationwide coverage, while also upgrading and modernising its mobile infrastructure.

As previously reported by CommsUpdate, Cyta’s rivals MTN and PrimeTel launched 4G services earlier this month. MTN’s LTE network, which provides average downlink/uplink speeds of 40Mbps/14Mbps, is currently available in Nicosia, Larnaca, Limassol, Famagusta and Paphos, while PrimeTel claims 4G LTE population coverage of 50%.
