Through this decision, BIPT confirms that Proximus still holds a dominant position on the high-quality access market and maintains the current obligations that apply to the operator in terms of access, transparency, non-discrimination and price control. Furthermore, a new obligation is imposed on Proximus, i.e. to provide access to ducts containing its optical fibres.
However, BIPT took account of the fact that several infrastructures are already installed in several parts of the country and determined about hundred areas where Proximus, while being obligated to give access to its network, is not subject to wholesale price control anymore (except for duct access).
