2015 action plan published for comment

24 Oct 2014

Romanian telecoms watchdog the National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) has published for public consultation its draft action plan for 2015. ANCOM highlighted in a release on its website that, amongst other projects, it will continue reviewing the relevant internet access markets including leased lines, identifying potential providers with significant market power and establishing appropriate regulatory measures. ANCOM also plans to allocate additional spectrum resources for broadband communications by holding an auction for spectrum licences in the 3.4GHz-3.8GHz frequency band. The authority will also support the transition to digital terrestrial television (DTT) via a tender in the second quarter of 2015 for the remaining digital multiplexes while technically authorising the DTT multiplexes granted in 2014.
