This market concerns the retailing of access to the fixed telephony network for residential and non-residential customers.
Applicable regulatory framework
The decision of 9 July 2019 waived the obligations previously imposed on Proximus on the market for fixed telephony access. This market is now deregulated.
The first market analysis decision concerning the retail market for access to the fixed telephony network was adopted on 19 June 2006. A second one was adopted on 31 January 2013.
In both cases, Belgacom (now named Proximus) was designated as having significant market power and was imposed a series of obligations to fulfil.
Furthermore, the 2006 market analysis decision was complemented by the following decisions:
- The decisions of 11 October 2006 and 8 November 2006 on shared numbers
- The decision of 22 August 2007 on cost accounting
- The decision of 27 February 2008 on key performance indicators (KPI)
