ANRC launches public tender for installation of telecentres in 123 rural locations

Romanian communications regulator the National Regulatory Authority for Communications (ANRC) has launched the fifth public tender for the installation of telecentres in 123 new rural localities in 32 counties of Romania.

ANRC is running a national project involving the installation of telecentres, stations in rural communities that are equipped with phone, fax and internet services. ANRC President, Mr. Dan Georgescu, explains, 'Within the national project for the installation of telecentres, more than 40,000 inhabitants of 38 isolated villages in Romania have access to telephone and internet services, and we expect this figure to double by the end of the year. The tender launched today envisages other 70,000 inhabitants of 123 new villages and we believe that, during the first half of 2007, these communities will also have access to easy and rapid communications.'

The 123 villages were selected from the localities with more than 400 inhabitants, identified as having low access to telephone services. The localities have committed to fully cover the costs of managing and maintaining the telecentres.

The deadline for submitting the offers is November 13, 2006, 16:00. The offers will be opened on November 14, 2006 at 10:00 and the winning offer will be announced within 30 days of the opening date.
