11 Mar 2008

Orange Romania says it has passed the ten million customer milestone, having doubled its subscriber base in under three years. The firm, which launched GSM services just over a decade ago, is Romania’s largest cellco and commands around 44% of the country’s mobile market in terms of subscribers, according to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database. Its closest rival, Vodafone, had 8.8 million customers at the end of 2007. Orange expects to upgrade its HSDPA 3.5G networks this year to achieve peak download speeds of 14.4Mbps, up from the current peak of 7.2Mbps.
