Vodafone is the incontestable leader on the international 4G roaming services segment, according to a report prepared by the independent research global company Ovum. The survey shows that, in most of the markets surveyed, Vodafone provides 4G roaming in more than 100 destinations, which is more than double of the number of destinations provided by the other operators.

Throughout the whole year of 2017, Vodafone Romania is celebrating 20 years, by a series of initiatives dedicated to the customers, and the special offer on the roaming services for individual customers is the most recent. The brand Vodafone is present on the Romanian market since 2005, when it acquired Connex, which launched its services in 1997. Throughout its history on the local market, the operator has primarily invested in innovation, being the first who provided GPRS services (in 2001), and later 3G services (in 2005) and 4G services (in 2012). The launch of the first Customer Service (in 1997), of the first corporate foundation (in 1998), of the short messages service – SMS – and of the data and fax services (in 1998), as well as of the first service of automatic recognition of speech (in 2014) are some of the premiers marked by Vodafone Romania on the telecommunications market in our country.
