Cosmote Launches Fixed-Mobile Hybrid Broadband Service

Cosmote announced the initial launch of its hybrid internet service, using both DSL and mobile internet.

The new router takes advantage of ADSL and VDSL over the fixed network, as well as 3G and 4G on the mobile network. Customers can learn more about Hybrid Access and experience a demonstration of the speeds offered at Cosmote stores in Glyfada (8, Lazaraki Street) and Thessaloniki (109, Tsimiski Street). Cosmote first presented the service at the InfoCom World Conference last November.
