With speeds in some regions reaching or exceeding 1 Gbps, COSMOTE subscribers now have the opportunity to surf, thanks to COSMOTE 5G.
But what is 5G? 5G is the next generation of mobile internet connectivity, offering ever faster speeds and more reliable connections. It is very fast, stable and versatile as it will support more users and concurrent devices, offering them much faster than 4G speeds. A simple example is how an individual can download a 3D movie in just 30 seconds, while with 4G, it would take about 6 minutes.
And now, COSMOTE, the leader again, is developing the largest mobile network in Greece and first offering its subscribers, 5G services, creating new horizons for the country’s digital development.
Who is it and what is the charge?
The unlimited potential of 5G is now available in Athens, Thessaloniki and other cities in Greece, with top speeds reaching or even exceeding 1 gigabit per second in some areas!
Now COSMOTE subscribers can use 5G – at no extra charge
Access to the COSMOTE 5G network is available to all COSMOTE subscribers, individuals and businessmen, without additional fees and regardless of the program (contract, card contract or prepayment). The only requirement is to have a certified 5G device in the COSMOTE network. For these available devices, at the moment they are: Apple iPhone 12 mini, AppleiPhone 12, Apple iPhone 12 Pro, Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, Xiaomi Mi10T Pro, Xiaomi Mi10T, Xiaomi Mi10T Lite, Xiaomi Mi10 Pro, Xiaomi Mi10 Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra .
In cooperation with major manufacturers, gradually more and more devices will be adopted to provide access to COSMOTE 5G.
With the network continuing to expand in more areas across Greece and population coverage is expected to exceed 50% by the end of 2021, the connection experience will be continuously improved as mobile internet speeds increase and the network response speed will constantly increase.
