Fixed communications

In 1930, Societatea Anonimă Română de Telefoane (SART, "Romanian Telephone Company, Ltd.") was founded, more than 90% of its value being a foreign investment from ITT.

During this period (1930–1933), SART commissioned Palatul Telefoanelor (The Telephone Palace), a historic building in Bucharest. Although the building has suffered from several earthquakes and a bombardment, it is still standing, and has recently undergone a process of reconstruction and reconsolidation.

In 1949, SART was nationalised and turned into a division of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications. The slow pace of technological development that ensued was in accordance with a more general trend in the country during the Communist period, which lasted until 1989.

In December 1989, ROM-POST-TELECOM was created as a post and telecommunications operator, independent of the Ministry. The company adopted the name of Romtelecom after a reorganization in July 1991, when the state-owned company was also given the monopoly for basic telecommunications services.

In 1997, a 35% of the company's shares were sold to the Greek telecommunications company OTE. A corruption case arose around details of this privatisation, but eventually no measures were taken.

OTE has since acquired an additional 18% of the shares and has thus become the majority shareholder of the company.

In September 2014, Romtelecom adopted the branding of OTE's controlling minority shareholder, Deutsche Telekom, and changed its name to Telekom Romania, together with its mobile communications subsidiary Cosmote România.

Mobile communications

The company launched on the Romanian mobile telephony market in 1998 as Cosmorom. In 2005, Cosmorom was rebranded as Cosmote România. In September 2014, together with Romtelecom, the company changed its name to Telekom Romania and adopted Deutsche Telekom's branding.
