ANRCETI JOINTLY WITH ANCOM ANNOUNCE THE PUBLICATION OF JOINT REPORT MONITORING IMPLEMENTATION OF THE ROAMING AND CALL AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE REPUBLIC OF MOLDOVA AND ROMANIA

High tariffs for roaming and telephone calls between the Republic of Moldova and Romania had been a discouraging factor in the communication between users of electronic communications services in the two countries, as well as had limited the possibilities for users to travel in both countries.

By means of the Agreement signed by Romania and the Republic of Moldova on February 11, 2022 (text of the Agreement here), ANRCETI and ANCOM are responsible for taking the necessary measures to reduce tariffs, monitor and report on developments.

On July 8, 2022 ANRCETI and ANCOM published the first joint monitoring Report on Developments (full text - pdf)
