Vodafone Greece says it is looking to cover 40% of the country’s population with its 5G mobile network by the end of next month. The firm currently covers 26 locations in Greece, including the main urban areas such as Athens and Thessaloniki, as well as the most popular tourist destinations. Rollouts are continuing in Patras, Heraklion, Chania, Larissa, Volos, Ioannina, Serres, Trikala, Lamia, Chalkida, Kavala, Xanthi, Kalamata, Orchomenos and Grevena, plus tourist sites in Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, Rhodes, Halki and Halkidiki. Vodafone launched its 5G network in January 2021.
A statement from the telco said: ‘The construction of Vodafone’s 5G network is implemented within the framework of the company’s investment programme of EUR600 million (USD680 million), with a horizon of 2025, which is in progress and aims to offer Greek households and businesses the most modern digital infrastructure and services, in order to contribute to the creation of a sustainable digital society with equal opportunities for all, without exclusions.’
