Telekom Romania (formerly known as Romtelecom and Cosmote România, not to be confused with Deutsche Telekom) is a Romanian telecommunications company headquartered in Bucharest. It is the result of the brand merger between the formerly Greek-owned telecommunications companies of Romtelecom and Cosmote. In September 2014, in order to reflect the changes, Romtelecom and Cosmote România changed their respective legal names to Telekom Romania Communications SA (replacing Romtelecom SA) and Telekom Romania Mobile Communications SA (replacing Cosmote Romanian Mobile Telecommunications SA).
Telekom Romania fixed services
Romtelecom was founded in 1991, after several reforms that divided the former Communist era Posts, Telephone and Telegraph Romania into the Romanian Post, Romtelecom and Bancpost.
