Cosmote has announced the commercial launch of its 5G network in Athens, Thessaloniki and other Greek cities, with speeds exceeding 1Gbps in certain areas. The company is aiming to increase coverage to over 50% of the population by the end of 2021, with 100% 5G coverage of 2,000km of highways by the end of 2023. The 5G network is accessible to all Cosmote subscribers with compatible devices, at no additional charge and regardless of their mobile plan.
‘5G, the future of telecommunications, is here and Cosmote is the first to launch it in Greece. With the 5G network we are making a huge leap towards the Gigabit Society,’ commented OTE Group Chairman and CEO Michael Tsamaz, adding: ‘Cosmote 5G will be constantly expanding and improving, while the new spectrum will help us to “unfold” its unlimited possibilities. We are evolving Greece’s largest mobile network today, so that, tomorrow, citizens and businesses can do more than they had ever imagined. Through technology and innovation, we create a better world for all.’
