Netcity Telecom was established in 2008. Access to the Netcity Infrastructure was opened to users in 2009, when the first telecom service providers successfully installed the first fiber optic cables in the underground.
In the following years, Netcity continued to expand and operate the underground infrastructure and at the end of 2012 Stage I phase objectives were achieved, following a 100% private investment of over 36 million euros.
The stages completed by the end of 2012 include approx. 900 km of continuous sections of underground infrastructure available for the the operators, distributed in 30 functional loops representing homogeneous areas in Bucharest.
Netcity network is under continuous development. In July 2017, Netcity Telecom launched new network sections with a total length of approximately 400 km by the end of 2018. The company will invest more than 30 million euros from its own funds in developing the underground fiber optic infrastructure, estimated to exceed 1,800 kilometers in 2020.
The goal of Netcity project is to migrate the aerial networks owned by the telecommunication operators into an underground network with multiple safety benefits and an improved visual aspect of the city.
Netcity Telecom designs, builds, manages and operates the Netcity underground infrastructure, with the guarantee of equal, transparent and non-discriminatory access to all companies and telecom operators that activate or want to provide services in Bucharest.
In 2008, Bucharest City Hall initiated the process of generating the necessary documentation for the Netcity project – an underground fiber optic metropolitan infrastructure that would offer its services to any interested user.
The initiative of the municipality was materialized in the open public auction, organized in August 2007. The contract for the development of the metropolitan fiber optic infrastructure was signed on June 2nd, 2008.
For the development, operation and management of the project Netcity Telecom was set up in 2008.
During the contract term Netcity Telecom pays to the Bucharest City Hall a royalty of 12% from the revenues generated out of the basic services.
