The Hellenic Telecommunications Organization (OTE) in an announcement on Sunday evening said that no problems were caused to its telecommunications network from the strong earthquake which occurred in the sea region south of the island of Kythira earlier in the day.
The OTE announcement read:” Neither were nor are any problems to the telecommunications network from today's earthquake. Some temporary and isolated cases of overloading of the network in Sparta, Kalamata and Hania were due to an excessive increase of use."
