COSMOTE 5G: Incredible speeds exceeding 1Gbps for the first time ever in Greece
For the first time ever in Greece, COSMOTE has made 5th generation services available commercially, creating new prospects for Greece’s digital growth. 5G technology is more than the next generation of wireless communication. It is the first step into an era of high speeds and unlimited possibilities.
COSMOTE, in an effort to continue providing its subscribers with the best connectivity and mobile internet experience, is constantly evolving and expanding the largest mobile network in Greece, aiming to continuously improving mobile internet speeds as well as network latency. In some areas top speeds can already reach or even exceed 1 Gbps.

Access to the COSMOTE 5G network is available to all COSMOTE subscribers, residential and business, at no extra charge, and regardless of their plan (contract, cost control, prepaid). The only requirement is that they have a 5G device that has been certified in the COSMOTE network. Thanks to its partnership with the largest manufacturers, COSMOTE has the largest variety of certified 5G devices, as there is now a total of 21 5G smartphones that provide access to COSMOTE 5G.
