Fourth Belgian mobile operator now legally possible
The Parliament has approved a law proposal that makes room for a fourth mobile operator in the Belgian mobile landscape. Although other candidates are ‘possible’ according to minister Van Quickenborne, it’s a public secret that Telenet is very interested in this licence.
A fourth licence for the 3G network is now also possible and will be contributed after an auction, probably in the second trimestre of 2010.
A legal frame has also been made for upcoming 4G networks. By 2015 there should be two 4G licences available.
