Action 47 in Belgium flag Belgium

Member States to facilitate broadband investment

Indicator Status Evidence
Have any measures to streamline planning or administrative procedures been introduced to improve broadband investment conditions? No
Do you have an operational national mapping of retail broadband coverage at different speeds? Yes Belgium is currently working on a national mapping of broadband coverage via mobile and fixed networks.
Have civil infrastructure initiatives been developed to entice new market entrants? Yes By law the initiator of road works has to question all applicants (e.g. water, gas and electricity suppliers, …) to suggest them carrying out joint works. They have two months to react to this question. In case of a positive answer a demand for a joint coordination of civil engineering works is made to the local authorities that award the permit. The digging costs are spread between all participants in proportion to the occupation of the dug trench.
Has the digital dividend spectrum (790 - 862MHz) been repurposed for mobile broadband and assigned to operators? No Consultation has been organized by the regulator to implement the RSPP Decision but no assignment yet as there is no text of Royal Decree yet for such assignment.
