29 Jun 2021

Vodafone Greece has signed a 20-year framework agreement with Grid Telecom for the reciprocal sharing of fibre-optic backbone infrastructure. Grid Telecom, a subsidiary of electricity transmission firm Independent Power Transmission Operator (IPTO), has more than 4,000km of terrestrial and submarine fibre across Greece, with plans to double this in the next few years.

Nicolae Vilceanu, Network Manager of Vodafone Greece, stated: ‘Our agreement with Grid Telecom helps us to make even better use of the investments we have made, but also to utilise a new network, which will allow us to accelerate our investment programme and offer even better services to our customers. We innovate, implementing openness policies and promoting smart solutions, which contribute to the development of the digital economy of Greece and lead to significant environmental savings.’
