Wind Hellas (Hellas meaning Greece) is one of three telecom companies in Greece, the other two being Cosmote and Vodafone. Initially it was owned by Telecom Italia and used the TELESTET brand; later, it adopted the TIM brand used by its parent, which sold it in 2005.

In 2007, Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris, through his telecom holding company Weather Investments, purchased the company and renamed it to Wind, the brand being used by TIM’s Italian domestic competitor. Sawiris sold his telecom assets to VimpelCom (now VEON) of Russia in 2011, but Wind in Greece was not part of the transaction and has been owned by private investors since 2010.[1]
