The main goal of this Axis is to bridge the differences and to ensure the digital transformation of Cyprus, without exclusions and through adequate access to communication infrastructure for all citizens. This will be achieved by providing 5G mobile and fiber optic network coverage for 100% of the population, including the development of 5G mobile telephony along major terrestrial corridors and universal and affordable Gigabit connectivity across all urban and rural areas.
The axis is a fundamental part of the overall policy for the digital transformation of Cyprus, promoting a new economic model with a vision for a dynamic and competitive economy, based on knowledge and digital and emerging technologies.
Combined with a series of actions in the other policy areas, which also contribute to the digital transformation of the economy, the Plan has a total of over € 280 million for the digital transition, an amount that corresponds to 23% of the total budget of the Plan.

The ‘Connectivity Voucher Scheme’ aims to encourage the upgrading of the internal building infrastructure in Cyprus and the connection of end-users to Gigabit capable networks, deployed close to their residence, through the reduction of set-up cost and subscription fees. The main objective of the Scheme is to intensify demand for ultrahigh speed connections, while encouraging the market to invest in Very High Capacity Networks (VHCN), an objective that is fully in line with the Cyprus Broadband Plan 2021-2025.
Closing date of call: 30/09/2023 or until the amount of €3,5 million is absorbed.
