Abstract: Internet use has been rising steadily in both communities in Cyprus over the last few years. Based on the WIP 2016 survey, it is estimated that more than 70% of the total population aged 15 and over in both communities in Cyprus is using the internet. Internet penetration in the Turkish-Cypriot community has risen more steeply since 2012, slightly surpassing the corresponding figure in the Greek-Cypriot community in 2014 and reaching 76.9% in 2016, more than six percentage units above the corresponding figure in the Greek-Cypriot community (70.8%). Home connections are the most popular in both communities, reaching usage by 97.7% of internet users in the Greek-Cypriot community and by 88.4% in the Turkish-Cypriot community, while mobile data connections are notably more popular in the Turkish-Cypriot community (used by 77.7% of internet users, compared to 61.6% in the Greek-Cypriot community). Greek-Cypriot internet users use computers to connect the internet at a rate of 93.9%, mobile phones at rate of 86.2% and tablets at a rate of 49.1%, compared to 69.0%, 88.9% and 33.1% respectively among Turkish-Cypriot internet users. Mobile phone users in both communities connect to the internet more frequently than users of other devices, with 72.7% reporting doing so several times a day in the Greek-Cypriot community and 62.0% reporting doing so several times a day in the Turkish-Cypriot community.
