Belgium’s telecom market has long benefited from comprehensive DSL and cable networks, complemented by limited fibre deployments. Though relatively small, the market has attracted investment from some of the region’s major players, including Liberty Global and Orange Group. There have been significant developments in the competitive landscape in recent years, fostered by regulatory measures which require cablecos to allow competitors access to their networks.
This has enabled Orange Belgium to become a viable force in the market for bundled services offerings, hitherto dominated by Proximus. In addition, Telenet in early 2016 completed its acquisition of the mobile provider BASE from KPN. The deal propelled Telenet as the second largest telco in the country, a position bolstered by a strong presence in the TV and broadband sectors. Broadband penetration has made considerable progress in recent years, largely thanks to regulatory measures to promote wholesale and bitstream access. In 2015 overall telecom revenue increased 2.4% year-on-year. Source: Budde
