Today, November 3, 2006, the President of the National Regulatory Authority for Communications (ANRC), Dan Cristian Georgescu, and the Vice-President of ANRC, Alexandrina Hirtan, presented the main problems pointed out by the industry from the North-Eastern region of the country, during a press conference held in Bacau. The meeting that preceded the press conference was attended by more than 140 representatives of the local industry.
Among the participants in the meeting in Bacau were representatives of companies in the field of communications from the counties of Bacau, Botosani, Covasna, Galati, Harghita, Iasi, Neamt, Suceava, Vaslui and Vrancea. During their discussions with the ANRC team, the local companies underlined the unfair practices used by certain competitive companies that, for the purpose of promoting their commercial offers, use aggressive methods, including denigration of existing competitors on the market or use of “misleading advertising” related to their own services. Another behaviour underlined by the local industry is the launch of commercial offers with dumping prices, aimed at eliminating competition.
