Telekom Romania (formerly known as Romtelecom and Cosmote România) is a Romanian telecommunications company headquartered in Bucharest. It is the result of the brand merger between Romtelecom and Cosmote. Although it shares the branding of Deustche Telekom, the company is a subsidiary of OTE, a Greek telecommunications company (which is in turn minority-controlled by Deustche Telekom).

The company launched on the Romanian mobile telephony market in 1998 as Cosmorom. In 2005, Cosmorom was rebranded as Cosmote România. At the end of 2013, Cosmote România had 6.1 million customers, of which 25.9% were subscribers and the rest were users of prepaid services.
