Extremely high speeds of up to 10Gbps (x10 times faster than 4G).
Almost zero response time (latency) as it will drop to 1 millisecond and simultaneous communication reliability to 99.999%. Features that will take the Virtual & Augmented Reality experience to the next level and make applications such as remote surgery and live holographic phone calls a reality.
The 5G network will be able to serve up to 1,000,000 devices per square kilometer, therefore paving the way for Internet of Things, through which many additional devices, such as cars and home appliances, will eventually become connected via mobile networks.
Up to 100 times more network capacity, allowing many more people to be served at the same time even when using services demanding high speed and quick response times or connecting from densely populated areas.
Access to the COSMOTE 5G network is available to all COSMOTE subscribers, individuals and companies, with no additional charge and regardless of their chosen mobile telephony plan (contract, card contract, prepaid).
All you need is a device certified for 5G usage within the COSMOTE network updated with the latest software and to be in an area with COSMOTE 5G network coverage.
Your 5G device will automatically switch to the COSMOTE 5G network. Alternatively, you can text “5G” free of charge to 1333.

COSMOTE 5G network has the widest population coverage in the country. It is already available in 48 cities and Islands across Greece, offering 97% coverage in Athens and 90% in Thessaloniki and maximum speeds which, in certain areas, exceed 1 Gbps.
COSMOTE 5G network currently covers the following cities and Islands:
COSMOTE 5G network will continue to expand to even more areas throughout the year, in accordance with our goal to achieve over 60% countrywide coverage by the end of 2021.
If you are using a compatible 5G device in an area that does not have 5G coverage, your phone will automatically switch to the available signal and then automatically reconnect to the COSMOTE 5G network as soon as you return to an area with 5G coverage.
If you are using a 5G-enabled device but do not want to connect to the 5G network, you have the option to disable 5G access using the menu on your device (Network Settings).
Alternatively, you can send a text containing the words "5G END" (free of charge) to 1333 at any time.
5G technology does not pose any health risks. COSMOTE follows all international radio frequency exposure guidelines, which are based on extensive research and include also the frequencies used for the development and operation of 5th generation networks.

We participate in 19 research projects funded by the 5G Infrastructure Public Private Partnership (5G-PPP), through which the European Union aims to enhance the competitiveness of the European industry on a global level.
In this way, we contribute to the design and development of new 5G technologies, infrastructures and services, as well as to the advancement and evaluation of future technological solutions, commercial applications and innovative business models in sectors such as smart cities, e-health, smart transport, education, entertainment and media.
The 5G network will not immediately replace 4G. These two networks will coexist for some time, just as it happened in the case of the 4G and 3G networks.
Along with the expansion of the 5G network, we continue to invest in the development of our 4G network, aiming to continuously ensure the best experience for our subscribers, wherever they may be.
The 5G network will operate in three different frequency ranges, which will complement each other in order to ensure that, whether you are connecting from a remote rural area or a densely populated urban setting, you will be able to enjoy all the endless possibilities this new technology has to offer!
How? These three frequencies are designed to work like different pieces in a puzzle:
Mid-Band 3.500 Mhz
This frequency is ideal for densely populated urban areas or large open spaces such as stadiums, where multiple devices are used simultaneously and high capacity is required.
Its key features include ultra-high speeds that will initially reach or exceed 1 Gbps, very high network capacity, virtually zero response time (latency) and a limited coverage range.
Mid-Bands 1.800/2.100 Mhz
The frequencies best suited for urban centers are at the mid level are as they combine high speeds with good geographical coverage, therefore offering satisfactory capacity and adequate response time.
Low-Band 700 Mhz
Low-band frequencies have speed performance similar to 4G and very large geographical coverage, which is their main advantage. The range of coverage in this level is not affected by obstacles such as buildings, adverse weather conditions, etc., rendering it an ideal solution for the countryside and offering reliable connectivity when connecting from either indoors or outdoors.
