BIPT has taken note of the publication by Proximus of a reference offer for the IP interconnection. Proximus published it on its own initiative and BIPT has not taken any position regarding the document.

As a reminder, in a draft decision published on 28 December 2017, BIPT proposed to impose a general obligation on Proximus concerning the provision of fixed termination for each interconnection technology (in particular the TDM/SS7 interconnection as well as the IP interconnection).

BIPT invites the sector to transmit its remarks concerning the document sent by Proximus by 16 April 2018 at the latest. This consultation is organised without prejudice to the position formulated by BIPT within the framework of the consultation regarding the analysis of the markets for fixed termination.

To reap the full benefits of this consultation, BIPT asks the operators, in case of doubts concerning certain aspects, to immediately contact Proximus in order to obtain clarifications. We hereby ask you to react to Proximus’ proposition of 15 March 2018 regarding the “VoIP Interconnection Offer”.

  • sent by e-mail to
  • by 16 April 2018 at the latest
  • Please make sure that the object of the response contains at least the following reference: “CONSULT-2018-A5”
  • Please identify any confidential information clearly
