Greek Post PTT

Sat, 27 Aug 2011 23:00:00 +0000

Greece - Postal, Telephone and Telecoms (PTT)

Real Test for Living as an Ex-pat in Crete



Greece's Postal Services and Telecoms are a remnant of Greece's earlier period of socialism and has left the country's utilities structure in a patchwork process of gradual change. In the PTT area, the national telephone company, OTE still dominates the house phone market, while international and mobile services are well de-regulated, competitive and provide efficient service. An aggressive programme by the Greek Government in Athens to cable up the country with high speed broadband services during 2007-2009 has brought greater competition while the Greek Post Office, known as Hellenic Post (ELTA) continues to be a monopoly. When living in Crete, British and Irish ex-pats will find dealing with OTE an early test for patience and stamina in dealing ith Greek bureaucracy to have a simple telephone house phone connection. If there are already available lines in your area it can be a fast and fairly stress free process or a waiting list nightmare if lines are restricted.

K.E.P. - The C.A.B. of Greece

Sat, 27 Aug 2011 23:00:00 +0000

K.E.P. Centres - Citizen's Advice Bureaus of Greece

Crete's CAB Help to the British or Irish Ex-pat Community

ΚΕΠ Κέντρα Εξυπηρέτησης Πολιτών

Citizens Advice Bureaux (CAB) - Greek Style
( Κέντρα Εξυπηρέτησης Πολιτών )

K.E.P. Centres are Crete, Greece's version of the UK's Citizen's Advice Bureaus (CAB). Modern Greece uses the Ombudsman concept and local government through the K.E.P. network of local centres. K.E.P.offices are a gateway for residents of all nationalities, including the Brits and Irish Ex-Pats to help cut through official Greek government red tape and endless bureaucracy. In fact, come to think of it, "bureaucracy" is a Greek word, and with some 3,000 years of a continuous legal system, and resulting contradicting laws, there are some amazing contradictions in the ways to get things accomplished when dealing with government at all levels. That is where K.E.P. offices and staff come in to their own and are proving to be most useful.

Crete's Public Utilities - Electricity and Water

Essential Living Info for the Ex-pat in Crete - Greece

 

The first occasion you are likely to come across the electricity supply in Crete is from the public utility known as DEH when you buy a property or rent a home on Crete or anywhere else in Greece.  The electricity bill covers both usage of electricity, the local municipal council rates and the fee to fund state broadcaster, EPT the Greek state broadcaster - like the BBC in Britain. When it comes to the Domestic Water Supply , each Town Hall in a Municipality is responsible for supply to its own inhabitants.
