Romanian Telecom Market

Considering the fact that after EU integration in 2007 metropolitan aerial fiber optics networks will not be allowed anymore, the Parliament is working on a major project for setting up metropolitan underground networks. It will definetly be a hard blow for the actual providers (and especially for the cvasi-monopolistics cable network operators) that are doing more or less whatever they want with the market at the moment in most of the cities across the country.

Designed to be accessible to all local authorities, companies, and especially to telecoms (phone, ISPs, CATV), the new metropolitan infrastructure will basically open the market and allow final users to choose amog various communications services providers. For Bucharest only the investment is estimated to USD 2 bn.
