Romania plans to revive its mobile market with the auction this year of licences for the use of the 800MHz, 900MHz, 1,800MHz and 2,600MHz frequency bands. Other important objectives set by Ancom for 2012 are an improvement in the quality of services provided to end-users and an increase in broadband coverage. Of all the telecom markets, Ancom expects the broadband market to see the highest growth this year. In H1 2011, active mobile broadband connections were up 18 percent to 3.53 million, while the number of fixed broadband connections reached 3.13 million, up by 4.4 percent.
