  • New tariffs for access to the cable networks

    Publications › Press release -
    Brussels, 27 May 2020 – Today, the CRC (the Conference of regulators in the electronic communications sector, i.e. the BIPT, the CSA, the Medienrat and the VRM) publishes its decisions regarding the wholesale tariffs for access to the cable networks of Telenet, Brutélé and Voo SA. These decisions enable wholesale cable access for alternative operators at fair prices, creating possibilities for competition on the retail market to the benefit of the end-users, whilst remunerating the network operators correctly for the access.

  • BIPT outlines the consequences of the destruction of GSM masts

    Publications › Press release -
    Mobile operators install their masts at well-defined locations in our landscape in order to provide the Belgian population with maximum coverage and thus a maximum accessibility indoors and outdoors. Encouraging the destruction of masts and damaging them are both punishable offences. The perpetrators are liable for damage caused to operators but also to third parties. Furthermore, the damage represents a threat to the use of mobile services by the inhabitants of that area and the passersby. As a matter of fact, the damaged connectivity could make it difficult to call emergency and essential services (doctors, hospitals, police, fire brigades, anti-poison service, suicide prevention service, domestic violence call line...). It could also jeopardise the orderly functioning of emergency services which can use the location data when a caller is in distress and is, for instance, unable to communicate his or her location. Damaging mobile equipment is particularly irresponsible in the context of the current lockdown period, during which it is more important than ever to keep in touch with our families and loved ones, to be able to contact emergency services and to continue to participate in the economic and social life.
  • The share of media in mobile data

    Publications › Press release -
    BIPT has published a study carried out by Capgemini Invent on the estimated share of media in the volumes of data transmitted over mobile networks and the revenues arising from it for the next 20 years. Conducted at the request of Minister of Telecommunications, Mr Philippe De Backer, the purpose of this study is to objectify the distribution of revenues from new frequency bands designated for 5G between the Federal State and the Communities. The share of media in the total volume of mobile data is estimated at 4,9% or 17,8% depending on the definition used for the term “media”. Within the revenues from mobile data, the share of media is estimated at 7,9% or 28,2%.
