OTE Group has the largest fiber optic network in Greece, COSMOTE Fiber, which enables more that 50 percent of the population to enjoy internet speeds of 100Mbps or higher. At the end of 2019 OTE Group offered the largest FTTH population coverage in Greece, providing 150,000 households and businesses with guaranteed internet speeds with 100 percent fiber optics. In mobile telephony as well, the company breaks new ground with its COSMOTE 4G and 4G+ network covering 99 percent and 96 percent of the population respectively. The company is also committed to invest robustly for the development of 5th generation mobile networks (5G).
OTE Group’s portfolio also includes COSMOTE TV, its pay TV service, which launched a new Over-the top (OTT) platform. Through this platform subscribers have access to COSMOTE TV’s premium content (90 digital channels, 16 COSMOTE SPORT, CINEMA and HISTORY channels, exclusive sports and cinematic content, original productions) through personalized recommendations, based on their preferences and habits.
Based on its know-how in the ICT field and its high level of activity in the field of IT integration, OTE Group is the partner of choice for businesses seeking integrated solutions in the fields of healthcare, tourism, information security, energy, data centers, cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) services. A pertinent example of OTE’s capability to successfully implement large scale and complex ICT projects is the 43 million euros installation and operation of Coca-Cola HBC’s data center for 28 countries.
As the economic environment in Greece further improves, OTE should continue to deliver top-line growth, driven by increasing demand for its fixed broadband and mobile data services, reflecting its technological edge, extensive infrastructure upgrade, and focus on customer experience. Extensive investments in fiber to the home networks, as well as the upcoming 5G commercial launch expected at early 2021, will further fortify the company’s positioning. Furthermore, OTE has embarked on a new journey of digitization and transformation, aiming to become even more agile, efficient and customer focused, to the benefit of all its stakeholders.
