Greek regulator approves 4G network sharing deal

29 Sep 2020

The Greek National Telecommunications & Post Commission (Ethniki Epitropi Tilepikoinonion kai Tachydromeion, EETT) has completed its investigation into the proposed extension of a 4G network sharing agreement between local cellcos Wind and Vodafone. The regulator approved the extension after finding that the agreement does not contain ‘restrictive terms of competition’ and does not concern the sharing of spectrum or the backbone networks of the two companies. In addition, it was found that the geographical scope of the deal is mainly focused on rural and semi-rural areas and it therefore benefits the inhabitants of these areas to have access to improved 4G coverage.
