The main goal and objectives of the program
Program for Development of Broadband Internet
Access (2010 2013) approved by
Government Decree 1077 dated on 17 November 2010
  • Main goal is to bridge digital divide between
    urban and rural areas
  • It aims to reach by the end of 2013
  • a) Fixed BB penetration rate - 20
  • b) Mobile BB penetration rate - 20
  • Ecosystem approach (3 pylons)
  • 1) Network rollout (increasing users
    accessibility)
  • 2) Terminal equipment availability
  • 3) Content and application development

8
Expected results of implementation
  • Bridge digital divide
  • Social inclusion
  • Productivity enhancement
  • Competitiveness growth
  • New business opportunity
  • New jobs creation
  • Facilitate PPP

Status of Implementation activities
Ensuring of additional radiofrequency spectrum
resources for implementation of advanced wireless
technologies (4G)
  • The release of the band 3.4 - 3.8 GHz
  • All radio-relay lines of the State Enterprise
    "Radiocomunicatii were shut down 28 December
    2011
  • Consideration of the possibility of using of the
    frequency band 790-862 MHz for broadband Internet
    access as a result of the analog television
    switch off
  • After WRC-2012 the 790-862 MHz band has been
    included in the Program for transition from
    analogue terrestrial television to digital
    terrestrial television (for broadband Internet
    access use). The public consultation of the
    Program started on 19 March 2012.

Status of Implementation activities
Ensuring of additional radiofrequency spectrum
resources for implementation of advanced wireless
technologies
  • Allocation of the 2,5-2,69 GHz and 3,6-3,8 GHz
    spectrum
  • The draft Government Decree on the implementation
    of broadband electronic communications services
    in the frequency range of 2.5-2.69 GHz and
    3,6-3,8 GHz were submitted for approval on 13
    March 2012 In conformity with this Decree 3
    licenses for use of frequency in the 2.5-2.69 GHz
    band and 1 license for use of frequency in the
    3,6-3,8 GHz band will be granted by the National
    Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications
    and Information Technology.

11
Status of Implementation activities
Improving of legal framework regarding
crossborder optical communications lines
  • At the end of 2010 the Rules of construction,
    maintenance and liquidation of the electronic
    communications networks in the state border area
    were substantially simplified in order to
    stimulate construction of crossborder optical
    communications lines. In the present, 4 national
    operators have direct optical connection to the
    networks of the operators of neighboring
    countries.

12
Status of Implementation activities
Increasing demand for Internet services due to
the implementation of universal service
  • Design of the draft of National Program for
    implementation of the Universal Service (must be
    submitted to the Government for approval on III
    quarter of 2012).

Modification of legal framework in order to
ensure efficient use of electronic communications
networks infrastructure and alternative
infrastructure
  • Design of the draft of Law for modifications of
    Electronic Communications Act (must be submitted
    to the Government for approval on IV quarter of
    2012).
