Romania's mobile telephony subs outnumber prepaid cards

Friday 19 May 2017 | 11:17 CET | News
Romania's number of mobile telephony subscriptions outnumbered prepaid cards for the first time in 2016, local telecom authority Ancom said. Subscription-based users were up 8 percent to 11.5 million and active prepaid card-based users decreased 9 percent to 11.4 million. The number of subscriptions increased mainly due to the residential users who prefer this type of mobile telephony access, by 11 percent in 2016, up to 8.6 million. At the end of 2016, there were 22.9 million active mobile telephony users, that is 1 percent less than at the end of 2015.
