Greece’s telecoms market is less developed than that of its western European peers. The market is regulated in line with EU principles. Despite market liberalisation, fixed-line incumbent Hellenic Telecommunications Organization continues to dominate all sectors. The national regulator EETT has shown increasing success in promoting competition, with local loop unbundling well utilised to deliver competing fixed-line services. Promoting competition has become one of the EC’s conditions for Greece’s financial bailout. This report introduces the key aspects of the Greek fixed-line telecoms, wholesale and IT market, outlining the regulatory environment, major players and providing relevant operational data and financial statistics on both the operators and the market.

Key developments:
EIT increases stake in ForthNet to 44.02%; economic crisis continues to affect telecoms revenue and investment; deregulation of the retail market for fixed-line calls; regulator reduces prices for handling NP requests; Vestitel builds second fibre-optic link between Greece and Bulgaria; OTE signs three-year wage deal in bid to save cash; regulator’s 2012 market review; telcos’ operating and financial data to Q3 2013; market developments to January 2014.

Companies covered in this report include:

OTE, ForthNet, Wind Hellas, On Telecoms, Tellas.
