BMI View:

The Romanian telecoms market contains a number of major international players, such as Cosmote, backed by OTE and Deutsche Telekom, Orange, and Vodafone in the mobile sector, as well as Liberty Global-owned UPC in the wireline sector. While the mobile subscriber market has witnessed declines in total subscriber numbers in recent quarters, the latest data from operators show a return to growth in Q212. Romania is at a crossroads in terms of market development: the recent spectrum auction sees five operators being awarded LTE-capable bandwidth, and Vodafone had already begun trials of its 4G network at the time of writing. But faster download speeds require investment in LTE technology and 4G-capable infrastructure, and regular cuts to mobile termination rates (most recently in September 2012) have had a negative impact on operators' profits. The question remains: will the potential returns of 4G encourage operators' shareholders to approve new capital expenditure in a country where growth has been sluggish, and regulatory measures and weak economic conditions are hitting the market hard?
