Greece to lower fibre wholesale charges

20 May 2020

The National Telecommunications & Post Commission (Ethniki Epitropi Tilepikoinonion kai Tachydromeion, EETT) in Greece is looking to implement a reduction of wholesale prices for access to next generation networks. The regulator says the cuts will reduce end user costs for fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) and fibre-to-the-cabinet (FTTC) services. It is aiming to see the cost of a 500Mbps FTTH connection fall from over EUR70 (USD76.50) per month currently to below EUR40 a month by 2028, while the price of a 100Mbps FTTC service will drop from around EUR25 now to below EUR18 by 2028. A recent report commissioned by Greece’s competition authority suggested that the country has some of the highest tariffs for communications services in Europe.
