ATMs do well in Greece

The use of cash machines in Greece has grown considerably in the last few years, as has electronic banking, according to data compiled by the Hellenic Bank Association.

The group has announced that the number of automated teller machines across Greece reached 7,600 in end-2010, growing by at least 1,000 from 2006, while expanding the services the machines offer to clients.

In the last decade the number of ATMs has increased by no less than 120 percent.

The association?s data also showed a 12 percent annual increase in the number of bank clients registered for electronic banking services last year, climbing to 1,929,800 in the first half of 2010. This in effect signifies an additional 210,000 e-banking clients from June 2009 to June 2010.
