In his comments on the results, speaking about Romania, Digi’s CEO Serghei Bulgac said: “The Competition Council approved, in July, the transfer of assets between the local branch and three independent operators (AKTA, DCS and ATTP Telecommunications). This is a step further in our company’s project to increase digitisation and reduce connectivity differences between different regions of our core market. As a result of the transaction, we will provide quality services at affordable prices to hundreds of thousands of customers, showing our determination to encourage their aspirations for a higher standard of living”.
