4 Situation in Romania Band MHz was used in the past exclusively for military applications. ANCOM carried on disscusions in Interdepartamental Committee for Radiocommunications (CIR) in order to make the band available for non-governamental use at RRC06 Romania was planned 1 MUX in channels a part of this band ( MHz) was free for nongovernamental usage July 2013 band MHz was free for non-governamental usage

5 A Timely Needed Auction Expiring licences 2 GSM licences ( MHz) end GSM licence ( MHz) April 2014 New frequencies available following release by Ministry of Defence (800 MHz, 1800 MHz, 2600 MHz) DTT was not yet implemented (800 MHz band was not used for simulcast) amendments to TNABF (800 MHz, 2600 MHz) appropriate for LTE, higher bandwidths Increasing data traffic on the mobile networks ever-increasing data volume at mobile locations (more than 200 MB/active SIM card/month) day by day, ever more smartphones, tablets etc. use more and more applications, mobile internet, social networks increased network capacity New technologies in mobile communications HSPA+ and LTE (4G)

6 Competitive Selection (auction) a transparent and objective procedure developed internally by ANCOM s own experts in frequency management, economical & technical regulations, legal, and IT based on the models confirmed by international practice adapted to the circumstances of the Romanian market the market decides the allocation & distribution of frequencies (not the Authority) sufficiently small blocks (for flexibility of choice) and sufficiently large blocks (for technological neutrality = 2G, 3G, 4G): 5 MHz FDD, 15 MHz TDD Caps for 800MHz and 900MHz bands: 2X10 MHz independent frequency blocks (one from another) the operators can obtain frequency portfolios that best answer their needs and their business models non-discriminatory treatment the same participation conditions for all the interested parties, new entrants or existing operators the only differences: closer deadlines for coverage obligations in case of existing operators
