ANC proposes 3G services in 900/1800MHz bands

27 Oct 2008

Romania’s telecoms regulator ANC has published for public consultation a draft decision on the use of the 900MHz and 1800MHz bands for 3G mobile services. The 880MHz-915MHz, 925MHz-960MHz, 1710MHz-1747.5MHz and 1805MHz-1842.5MHz bands are currently allocated to three operators – Orange Romania, Vodafone Romania and Cosmote – for GSM-based 2G services. The regulator intends to alter the terms of their existing licences to allow for the provision of UMTS third generation services.
