Asesoft International, Comcore Management, Cosmote Romania, Media Sat, RCS&RDS and Vodafone Romania are all in the running for the concessions, with final bids to be submitted by 5 February 2009 and the winners to be announced the following month. The most notable absentees from the applicants are fixed line incumbent RomTelecom and cellular market leader Orange.
