The telecoms regulatory body Cyta bragged that Cyprus was the first EU country to announce complete 5G population coverage, including in isolated mountainous locations. 
Cyta made its statement after its 5G network reached Sykopetra, the last remaining area to cover completely in the hilly region of Pitsilia. 
Kyriacos Kokkinos, deputy minister for research, innovation, and digital policy, highlighted Cyta's significant contribution to the nation's digital transformation at a brief ceremony in the town of Sykopetra. 
"The instant accessibility of networks and services in every area of Cyprus enhances the nation and its citizens' digital maturity, while protecting the economy's resilience."
Kostas Champiaouris, commissioner for mountainous regions, expressed his satisfaction with Cyta's 5G network's ability to reach isolated towns and provide 'cutting-edge' technology.

According to Champiaouris, "Cyta is one of the key pillars in the efforts to create a fundamental development policy for mountain areas, which concerns the promotion of digital transition, the effective creation of infrastructures and the development of services, modernizing mountainous areas, and improving technological accessibility for residents and businesses."

Michalis Ioannides, the chair of Cyta, bragged about his organization's success in deploying a fully 5G network before any other EU country.

Andreas Neocleous, CEO of Cyta, stated that nobody should be excluded.
