Telecom operator Cosmote Romania launched a new tariff plan under the No Limit umbrella. Thus, clients who want the advantages of the No Limit tariff plan, but do not need a handset subsidy, can receive limitless voice communication and on net messaging, alongside data bundle and 3 applications free of charge: RadarMe, Mireo Navigation and Dolce Mobile TV, for EUR 24.8 (VAT included).
“The new tariff plan is dedicated to those users who already have a handset and are looking for a carefree communication solution. Moreover, to the success recipe we added features that complete the smartphone experience: access to video content through Dolce Mobile TV, to social networking using ‘RadarMe powered by Cosmote’ and to navigation in the whole Europe offered by ‘Mireo Navigation powered by Cosmote’ applications”, said Panos Makris, chief commercial officer in Cosmote Romania.
The No Limit Avantaj tariff plan offers unlimited national/international minutes in zone 1, unlimited on-net minutes, unlimited on-net SMS, unlimited Romtelecom fixed minutes, unlimited on-net MMS, unlimited on-net video calls, access to RadarMe, Mireo Navigation and Dolce Mobile TV apps, as well as 500 MB data traffic.
People who want to benefit from these features but also desire a new device can also choose No Limit tariff plan (EUR 31/month, VAT included).
Starting July 1, Cosmote also axed roaming tariffs by up to 35.71 percent within the EU member states and in the European Economic Area (EEA).

These include BBC Knowledge, Discovery, Animal Planet, Discovery World, Discovery Science, ID Discovery Investigations, Shorts TV, TCM, Comedy Central, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, BBC World News, CNN and TLC.
“Part of these new channels were introduced in the first part of the year in our program. Also, because we believe in the concept TV Everywhere, it was a natural decision to add them to the list of available channels on the dolcetv.ro platform,” said Ovidiu Ghiman, executive director on strategy and commercial residential sector, Romtelecom.
Dolce TV now broadcasts 40 channels in total.
