Romania ranks 37th in GCI 2019.
Romania’s GCI scores for indicators assessing demand and user experience were higher than the global average this year. However, its supply and potential scores still lag behind the global average. FTTH and 4G investment both improved over last. Romania now scores maximum for smartphone penetration and use of mobile broadband. This gives Romania a solid foundation to develop its ICT sector further, particularly with improvements in e-government user experience, download speeds, and Internet use.
Cloud services ensure that IT resources are affordable and scalable. They offer excellent value to small businesses, which can grow without investing heavily in IT systems. The GCI indicators show a growing interest in cloud migration services. To leverage the country's existing strengths, it will be important for Romania to deliver continuous network coverage.
