Greece’s telecoms market has suffered from tough economic conditions in recent years, leading to lower sector overall revenue and investment. Operators across the board have seen gross profits tumble year after year, and the continuing economic turmoil will make market conditions particularly difficult during the next few years. The dominant player remains the incumbent telco OTE, which has experienced significant challenges but is supported by the organisational ability and financial clout of its parent Deutsche Telekom, which now owns a 45% stake in the company.

Broadband penetration in Greece is developing steadily despite difficult economic conditions. The main operators have nevertheless secured loans to enable them to build fibre-based next-generation networks and so reach the European broadband targets for 2025. Consumers in Greece have limited choices since the country remains the only one in Europe with a single access network, there being no cable platform and only a very limited reach of fibre infrastructure thus far.

Greece’s well-developed mobile market is dominated by the three mobile network operators Wind Hellas, Vodafone Greece and Cosmote. Operators continue to invest in LTE infrastructure and technologies to provide networks capable of meeting customer demand for data services. This, in turn, is helping the operators to offset declining revenue from voice and SMS services. Wind Hellas and Vodafone have a mobile network sharing deal and have partnered to develop a large-scale fibre-based fixed-line NGN.

The regulator has set in train the release of spectrum in the 3.4-3.8GHz band for 5G use, anticipating spectrum auctions to be held during 2019, with services being launched in urban areas by late 2019 and nationally by 2020. In October 2018 Wind Hellas announced plans to trial 5G during 2019, initially in Kalamata.

This report introduces the key aspects of the Greek fixed-line telecoms, wholesale and IT market, outlining the regulatory environment, assessing the major players and providing relevant operational data and financial statistics on both the operators and the market. The report also covers the fixed-line broadband segment, as also the mobile voice and data markets, covering regulatory and sector developments as well as reviews of the key players.
