"Romania Telecommunications Report Q3 2014" now available at Fast Market Research

Competition covers the provision of basic services, where the arrival of mobile virtual network operators has had an impact, as well as higher value wireless data services, with all three mobile network operators having launched LTE services as of May 2013. The medium-term outlook is mixed in Romania, with continued price competition and economic challenges posing downside rise. However, rising smartphone penetration offers upside via the development of mobile data and value-added services such as mobile payment services.
