Ericsson named main supplier for initial WCDMA network by COSMOTE in Greece

"The start of the deployment of our 3G network in Greece is yet another milestone for COSMOTE and confirms once again the company's proven commitment to deliver the highest quality, most user-friendly services to the Greek people," said Evangelos Martigopoulos, CEO of COSMOTE.

COSMOTE's Board of Directors selected Ericsson as the main vendor for the first phase of its 3G deployment in their June 19 board meeting. The first phase covers the period until the end of 2004.

"We are very honored that COSMOTE has selected Ericsson as the main partner for their initial 3G network rollout," said Bill Zikou, President of Market Unit South East Europe at Ericsson. "This Letter of Intent is yet another confirmation of Ericsson's global leadership in providing end-to-end WCDMA solutions and a clear recognition of our competitive local position."
