Jolly HOLiday for VDSL users

18 Dec 2012

Greek unbundled local loop (ULL) network operator Hellas Online (HOL) yesterday launched VDSL broadband packages enabling speeds of up to 50Mbps download and 5Mbps upload, available in three double-play bundles featuring fixed line calls to national, international and mobile numbers. Under an initial promotion monthly prices start from EUR30 (USD39.50) per month, while subscribers to cellco Vodafone Greece – HOL’s minority shareholder – receive an additional EUR5 monthly discount and a further discount based on their mobile plan. Last month two other Greek ULL-based telcos ForthNet and Wind Hellas launched VDSL packages after incumbent OTE introduced its commercial wholesale and retail VDSL access offers, while TeleGeography notes that faster-growing ULL network operator Cyta Hellas launched commercial VDSL services in December 2011.
