Romanian authority consults on areas without 100Mbps fixed broadband

26 Feb 2021

Romania’s National Authority for Management and Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) has launched a public consultation to verify its list of localities which do not have access to fixed broadband networks providing download speeds of at least 100Mbps. According to information held by the regulator, residential customers in 6,967 localities can potentially access the so-called ‘ultra fast’ services while those in 6,769 areas either have access to slower speeds or are not currently covered by broadband networks. In the latter areas, speeds of between 30Mbps and 100Mbps are available to customers in 2,056 localities and 2Mbps-30Mbps in 2,731 areas, while customers in 2,342 locations are not currently covered by fixed broadband networks. The consultation seeks feedback on the accuracy of the data and expressions of interest in investing in new fixed ultra fast broadband networks.
