Cosmote is preparing to launch a pilot LTE network. The Greek operator filed a relevant licensing request for pilot tests to the Ministry of Infrastructure, Transport and Networks. Cosmote intends to launch the pilot LTE network in the Marousi and Chalandri areas (wider Athens area) at its technical & network headquarters locations. One of the biggest advantages of an LTE network is its capacity to operate in multiple frequency bands, offering high-quality coverage at an optimum cost in remote areas, contributing significantly to broadband penetration expansion.
