The Romanian telecom watchdog has submitted for public consultation a bill that decides the way in which telecom operators should give information on the location and development of their networks.
Thus, according to the bill, the operators must send to ANCOM the information regarding their networks and associated infrastructure elements. By November 1, 2015, telecom operators should send the required information corresponding to existing data on November 1, 2014.
The information will be updated annually, by July 1, with information available until December 31 the previous year.
This information will allow ANCOM to keep track of public communication networks and telecom infrastructure, as stipulated in Law 154/2012 regarding the status of the communication network infrastructure.
The gathered data will be introduced on a map that will show the network coverage in every locality in Romania, as well as an image of the available infrastructure elements.
This map should help providers make informed decisions regarding the efficient development of their networks, and will make network sharing easier to achieve.
The project now is open for public consultation and proposals can be sent until October 7, 2014 at the address email@example.com. Once the public consultation is complete, the decision will be published in the Official Gazette and will come into force on November 1, 2014.
