Broadband penetration in Greece is developing slowly despite the difficult economic conditions which have prevailed in recent years. These conditions have reduced consumer spend on services, with a knock-on effect on revenue. Nevertheless, the main operators have recently secured loans to enable them to build fibre-based next generation networks and so reach European broadband targets by 2020. The incumbent operator, Cosmote, still dominates the DSL sector though this is diminishing through wholesale access to other players via LLU. The slowly increasing consumer take up of broadband and a steady deployment of faster VDSL infrastructure has in turn encouraged the development of a range of IP services including streaming videostreaming.
Alternative operators able to access Cosmote's VDSL vectoring technology; Cosmote extends VDSL network to cover 1.3 million premises; Wind Hellas and Vodafone begin fibre sharing venture; steady rise in satellite TV subscriber base; regulations ratified for in-building fibre ducts; operators secure loans to extend NGNs; report update includes the regulator's 2015 market review and annual report, telcos' operating and financial data to Q4 2016, recent market developments.
