The Greek telco Wind has partnered with Google to launch Wind Vision, the country’s first pay-TV platform with Android TV.
Three leading Greek telcos will shortly invest a combined €250 million on the deployment of NGA networks for fixed-line services.
Vodafone has teamed up with Wind to build a fibre-optic network in Greece.
Greece looks set for market consolidation, with Vodafone and Wind Hellas seeking to gain control of Forthnet and Cyta Hellas.
A 50/50 joint bid by Wind and Vodafone for Greece’s leading alternative telco Forthnet will be made after the Christmas holidays, according to Nassos Zarkalis, the chairman and CEO of Wind Hellas.
Vodafone is paying €72.7 million to acquire a 72.7% stake in Greek broadband/phone service provider Hellas Online.
Vodafone and Wind Hellas are joining forces to get full control of Forthnet including its pay TV platform Nova.
