Orange Romania launches 300Mbps-capable LTE

19 Sep 2014

Orange Romania yesterday (18 September 2014) announced the launch of upgrades to its 4G LTE mobile network to enable peak theoretical mobile data speeds of up to 300Mbps in six cities – Bucharest, Brasov, Cluj-Napoca, Galati, Iasi and Timisoara – under the ‘4G+’ banner. The French-owned operator disclosed that the upgraded LTE services will be available from 22 September for business and consumer subscribers on selected packages. Orange also announced that its LTE network (originally launched in December 2012 and significantly expanded in April 2014) has been extended to an additional 200 towns/municipalities, reaching a total of more than 1,300 municipalities and 48% of the Romanian population (and 78% of the country’s urban population). Furthermore, Orange has also launched 4G network coverage of the Bucharest Metro train system, which carries an approximate 650,000 passengers daily. Since July, Orange Romania customers can access 4G internet speeds on all subscriptions at no additional fees compared to 3G/2G surfing.
