Proximus regrets the federal government’s decision to open the 2019 spectrum auctions to a fourth mobile operator

We have taken note of the agreement in principle of the federal government to open the upcoming spectrum auctions, announced for 2019, to a fourth mobile operator under discriminatory conditions.

We regret this decision as it will allow a new operator to enter the Belgian market on disruptive terms. This will indeed reduce prices for the consumer in the short term, but will also immediately affect the quality of the network and the profitability of the sector. This will inevitably put pressure on network investments and employment in the Belgian telecommunications sector.
