In collaboration with Nokia, TELESTET has brought commercial 3G services to Greece with the launch of the country’s first WCDMA network. It will initially operate in the greater Athens, Thessaloniki, Patra and Irakleion areas with other major cities to follow shortly.

The launched WCDMA 3G network uses equipment provided by Nokia under an agreement announced in April 2003 and includes a complete radio access and core network and operations support system (OSS), plus implementation, optimization and care services. In addition, the company is providing its operations start-up package to support TELESTET in starting and developing its operations competencies and procedures for the network.
