Internet and Telecommunications
Liberalisation of the telecommunications sector concluded in 2003 has led to rapid expansion of the market, in particular with regard to wireless services.
In 2011, there were an estimated 4.7 million fixed lines in operation, and approximately 23.4 million mobile phones. Internet users in 2011 numbered an estimated 12 million.
Interms of broadcasting, the television market has traditionally been dominated by Romania 1 and the private stations Pro TV and Antena 1, with other private stations providing additional channels, including local programming. Additionally, at the time of writing, a second national network and a satellite channel is operated by state broadcaster, TVR. Pay TV services are also available.
