In 2012, the sales of smartphones soared by 110 pc, contributing to a 93 pc increase of the mobile data traffic compared to the same interval of the previous year. “(…) This year too will be full of challenges for the telecom industry, given the pressure exerted by regulatory decision upon investment.  However, in 2013 we intend to massively invest in latest-generation 4G networks, in expanding our portfolio of services and products, and we will keep our focus on the quality of services and on how we interact with our customers,” said Jean-Francois Fallacher, CEO Orange Romania.
