Mission and Vision

Cyta’s Directory Enquiries service is only available on 11892. Any other numbers do not belong to Cyta.

Cyta’s old Directory Enquiries number (192) was withdrawn on 31 January 2006 after 45 years of service. Since 1 February 2006, the new number (11892) has been in use. The change of number took place following the liberalisation of the telephone directory enquiries market in Cyprus.

We want our contacts with customers to be special for them, a unique experience in terms of speed and quality of service which exceeds their expectations.
