The European Commission announced that by the end of the week it would make public the names of the telecom companies that did not adopt the European measures for roaming tariff cuts yet, Reuters reported on Monday. Sources say that Romanian operators are among the ones who did not implement the measures.
European Telecom Commissioner Viviane Reding said that companies who did not implement the measures breach the EU treaty.
Other problem-causing countries, besides Romania, are Bulgaria, Cyprus, France and Belgium, according to a Reuters source.
