Romania's broadband market benefits from effective infrastructure-based competition. Broadband platforms include widely accessible cable TV, micro LANs, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), wireless and fibre. The country's fibre sector has become one of the strongest in Europe in recent years, and by mid-2016 about 94% of all fixed broadband lines were on some sort of fibre-based infrastructure. As a result, the country has one of the highest FttP penetration rates in the region, and by November 2016 the average broadband download speed broached 100Mb/s.

Increasing broadband take up is fostering the development of Romania's internet society, encompassing e-commerce, e-government and e-health. Digital TV is available via cable TV, satellite and digital terrestrial TV, with the satellite-based digital pay-TV operators instrumental in driving digital TV uptake. DTTV developments are progressing following the approval of a DTTV migration strategy.

This report provides insights into Romania's growing broadband and digital media markets, covering the technologies, the major players and market developments. Market analyses are supported by variety of statistics on fixed broadband penetration.
