Cosmote launches first LTE network in Greece

20 Nov 2012

Cosmote Greece has launched the country’s first commercial 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) mobile broadband network in Athens and Thessaloniki, for USB modem and tablet computer users. Cosmote’s technical director, Giorgos Tsonis, announced that the 4G network covers ‘the majority’ of municipalities in the regions of Attica (surrounding Athens) and Thessaloniki, while the gradual development of the network is ongoing. ‘Soon, Cosmote 4G will be available in more Greek cities,’ he added. Post-paid data subscribers wishing to access 4G speeds can sign up for the Cosmote Internet On The Go 20GB tariff plan, also available as an option with the existing Internet On The Go 5GB, 10GB, Student and Internet Any Way 5GB data plans. Pre-paid subscribers can access the LTE network through a new Internet On The Go connection package, ‘4G Full Pack’, provided they pay upfront for a compatible stick modem or 4G tablet.
