Belgium (Country Regulation Overview)
In the fixed sector the regulator, the Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications (BIPT), has adopted a new decision on the normalization of termination charges across all fixed-line operators, while in the mobile sector it has issued four new licenses to the mobile operators for offering 4G services in the country.
The BIPT concluded the second round of relevant market analysis for current markets 1, 2, and 3, and published its final decision on the wholesale market for voice call termination over fixed networks.
In July 2012 the BIPT amended the country’s Telecommunications Act to adopt the EC's latest directives. Belgium has now fully transposed the revised telecoms framework, although it did so long after the EC’s deadline of May 2011.
