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).[2]
