Operators fulfil 98% voice coverage obligation

8 Dec 2022

Romanian telecoms watchdog the National Authority for Management & Regulation in Communications (ANCOM) has announced that the country’s mobile network operators (MNOs) have fulfilled an obligation to provide voice services to at least 98% of the country’s population. According to field measurements conducted between May and October of this year, RCS&RDS (DIGI) covered 98.8% of the population with mobile voice services, Orange Romania 98.5%, Telekom Romania Mobile Communications 98.5% and Vodafone Romania 98.4%. As previously reported by TeleGeography’s CommsUpdate, Telekom Romania was fined RON700,000 (USD149,250) in January 2021 for non-fulfilment of its spectrum licence obligation to achieve the required coverage by April 2017, after an earlier monitoring survey found 97.25% of the population were within its voice services footprint.
