Signal Jammer Frequenies for Greece

Mobile communications was first    introduced in Greece in 1992. First companies that provided such    services were Panafon (now Vodafone) and Italian Telestet (now WIND).    Those companies started building their mobile networks in 1993 and in    1998 Cosmote (an affiliate of state telecommunications OTE company) have    joined them.

 

Now, there are three major mobile    carriers in Greece. Cosmote, which is an affiliate company and a    property of OTE, the state telecommunications company. WIND – one of the    first mobile carriers in Greece, as we've already mentioned, its  former   name was Telestet. The company is now the property of one  entrepreneur   form Egypt. Another major carrier is Vodafone. Initial  company's name is   Panafon, but the company was sold to English  Vodafone and got a new   brand name.

 

Greece uses the same European GSM    standard, that supports voice calls and text messages. The frequencies    are 900/1800 MHz. There are two frequencies for GSM standard because    your phone is a duplex device, that is able to receive and transmit data    simultaneously, so you can speak and hear your talker at the same  time.

 

Also, if you plan your vacation or a    journey to Greece you should know that all mobile phone and landlines    phone numbers consist of 10 numbers and all mobile numbers begin with    69. GSM coverage in Greece is almost perfect, it covers the whole    country, except of a couple of small islands.

 

The mainland part of Greece is  perfectly   covered, mobile phones work everywhere. Also, local SIM  cards are quite   easy to get, so you'll be able to get a local phone  number. There are   also two options for mobile phone users, that wish  to get a local SIM   card. They are postpaid and prepaid. The prepaid  option, is the only one   that is suitable for foreigners.

 

Now, a couple of words about mobile    Internet. First of all we should tell you that all the major mobile    carriers are providing 3G Internet only, based on the UMTS standard.    UMTS uses 2100 MHz frequency and is the most widely spread 3G standard    in the world. The only problem with 3G in Greece is a rather poor    coverage, there are areas, where there is no 3G reception at all. The    speed is also not really high. By the way, major carriers have started    building own 4G networks, they will provide 4G mobile service, based on    LTE standard, that uses 875 MHz frequency and is world's most popular  4G   standard. So, if you'll be in Greece in a couple of years you will    probably able to use your LTE compatible phone there.

 

But Greece can provide a decent    alternative to the unreliable 3G. There are really lots of Wi-Fi    hotspots there, and you will surely be able to find one at the airport,    hotel, restaurant. There are Wi-Fi hotspots even in major  supermarkets.   The only problem here is that Wi-Fi is rather vulnerable  type of   connections, and we at Jammer-Store strongly recommend you to  avoid   accessing your bank account, or in any way transfer any  valuable   information over Wi-Fi, not only in Greece, but all over the  world.
