was completed around 2005-2006, when only two big suppliers of cable remained: UPC-Astral and RDS. Internet over coaxial cable has been available since around 2000, and IP telephony (over the CATV infrastructure) since the deregulation of the market in 2003. Currently, cable TV is available in most of the country, including most rural areas (where roughly 40% of the population lives). Satellite digital TV appeared in 2004, providing coverage for the rest of the country, with both RCS&RDS and UPC-Astral having a stake in these companies. IPTV (over DSL) is also planned by Romtelecom through its TV service (Dolce), after offering Satellite digital DTH TV. However, IPTV will not be much of a competition, since the other two big ISPs are also the two biggest CATV providers. *Braşov - Sibiu - Arad (Arad, Romania) railway *Râmnicu Vâlcea - Sibiu railway *Târgu Jiu - Simeria railway Alexander Ypsilantis, accompanied by his brother Nicholas and a remnant of his followers, retreated to Râmnicu Vâlcea, where he spent some days negotiating with the Austrian authorities for permission to cross the frontier. Fearing that his followers might surrender him to the Turks, he gave out that Austria had declared war on Turkey, caused a Te Deum to be sung in Cozia Monastery, and, on pretext of arranging measures with the Austrian commander-in-chief, he crossed the frontier. However, the reactionary policies of the Holy Alliance were enforced by Francis II (Francis II, Holy Roman Emperor) and the country refused to give asylum for leaders of revolts in neighboring countries. Ypsilantis was kept in close confinement for seven years. Paroulakis, p. 44. In Moldavia, the struggle continued for a while, under Giorgakis Olympios and Yiannis Pharmakis but, by the end of the year, the provinces had been pacified by the Ottomans. In early 2005, it introduced a new double-decker car for medium-distance, highly-used Interregional (former accelerat) routes such as Bucharest–Predeal. Desiro trainsets have also been introduced on medium-distance Interregional routes in Transylvania and Moldavia (Iași – Vatra Dornei). Longer-distance Interregional trains often have couchettes, and sleepers started to be added again to consists after a lengthy absence. Dining cars are never used on these trains. Currently (2010 schedule), many short and medium distance routes (such as Bucharest–Craiova, Bucharest–Râmnicu Vâlcea–Sibiu, Bucharest–Constanța, Bucharest–Galați, Bucharest–Tulcea, Galați–Brașov, Craiova–Sibiu, Timișoara–Sibiu, Cluj-Napoca–Sibiu) are served by modernized double-decker cars or Desiro trainsets. Some long-distance trains (Bucharest–Timișoara, Bucharest–Târgu Jiu–Arad (Arad, Romania), Bucharest–Cluj-Napoca–Satu Mare, Bucharest–Iași, Bucharest–Vatra Dornei, Iași–Timișoara, Sighetu Marmației – Bucharest) also use modernized Rapid-style cars. The city houses two universities: the state-run University of Piteşti and the private (Private university) Constantin Brâncoveanu University (Constantin Brâncoveanu University of Piteşti) (founded 1991, with branches in Brăila and Râmnicu Vâlcea). There are 17 secondary education institutions, including two main high schools—the Ion Brătianu National College (Ion Brătianu National College (Piteşti)) (founded 1866) and the Zinca Golescu National College. There are also 20 primary schools, 23 kindergartens and 10 nursery schools.

Transylvania, with an alternative Latin prepositional prefix, means "on the other side of the woods". Hungarian historians claim that the Medieval Latin form ''Ultrasylvania'', later ''Transylvania'', was a direct translation from the Hungarian (Hungarian language) form ''Erdő-elve'' (rather than the Hungarian being derived from the Latin).

The order in which they were settled in Transylvania being as follows : — Mediasch (Mediaş), 1142 ; Muhlenbach (Sebeș), 1150 ; Hermannstadt (Sibiu), the capital, 1160 ; Klausenburg (Cluj-Napoca), 1178; Schässburg (Sighișoara), 1178 ; Reussmarkt (Miercurea Sibiului), 1198 ; Broos (Orăştie), 1200. To these seven were subsequently added two others, Bistritz (Bistriţa), 1206 ; and Kronstadt (Braşov), 1208. Researches on the Danube and the Adriatic by Andrew Archibald Paton (1861).

''Erdel'', the Turkish (Turkish language) equivalent originates from this form, too. thumb left 200px Porta Praetoria at Porolissum (File:Gate Porolissum.jpg), Dacia (Roman Dacia) (modern Transylvania, Romania) In 101-102 and 105-106 AD, Roman (Roman Empire) armies under the Emperor Trajan fought a series of military campaigns (Trajan's Dacian Wars) to subjugate the wealthy Dacian Kingdom. By 106, under Trajan they succeeded in subduing the southern and central regions of Dacia. After the conquest, the Romans seized an enormous amount of wealth (the Dacian Wars were commemorated on Trajan's Column in Rome) and immediately started to exploit the Dacian gold (Alburnus Maior) and salt mines located in today's territory of Transylvania. Roman influence was broadened by the construction of modern roads and some existing major cities such as Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa and Dierna (today Orşova) became Roman colonies (Colonia (Roman)). The new province was divided under Hadrian: ''Dacia Superior'', corresponding roughly to Transylvania and ''Dacia Inferior'', similar to the region of South Romania (Walachia).
