Vodafone Romania and Orange Romania, agreement for network sharing

Vodafone Romania and Orange Romania closed an agreement for sharing their network infrastructure. According to a joint press release, the agreement was done in accordance with industry common practice, both in the European Union and outside this area, and it was a natural evolution of the previous forms of sites sharing between the two mobile operators. The network sharing agreement will enable the two companies to continue the investments in technology upgrades with national coverage. The efficiencies created by the deal will enable the parties to invest in expanding 4G coverage, as well as in covering the “white” areas in rural regions. In the same time, the users of the two companies will benefit from the faster rollout of enhanced technologies such as the newly launched 4G.
Each of Vodafone and Orange will continue to run independent spectrum and will retain strategic control and completely differentiated core networks, such that the parties remain totally independent and provide their services to customers on an individual basis. They will continue to actively compete with each other in all products and services.
Both companies will have access to a common grid of sites which will eliminate the unnecessary duplication of the network and will bring significant environmental benefits.
