report has been added to’s

This report provides an overview of Greece’s mobile market, covering
regulatory and market developments as well as financial and operating
statistics of the key players.

Greece’s well-developed mobile market is dominated by the three mobile
network operators Wind Hellas, Vodafone Greece and Cosmote. Operators
continue to invest in LTE infrastructure and technologies, including
carrier aggregation, to provide networks capable of meeting customer
demand for data services. This in turn is helping the operators to
offset declining revenue from voice and SMS services. Wind Hellas and
Vodafone have a mobile network sharing deal and have partnered to
develop a large-scale fibre-based fixed-line NGN.

The regulator has set in train the release of spectrum in the 3.4-3.8GHz
band for 5G use, anticipating spectrum auctions to be held during 2019,
with services being launched in urban areas by late 2019 and nationally
by 2020. In October 2018 Wind Hellas announced plans to trial 5G during
2019, initially in Kalamata.
