Bidco asks for 3G deployment delay, BIPT refuses

Wednesday 22 May 2013 | 09:41 CET | News
Belgian regulator BIPT has refused to grant a delay to 3G license holder Bidco for the deployment of a 3G network. Bidco lost its first request for a delay but may still appeal BIPT's decision at the Court of Brussels. Bidco, a group including Telenet and Voo, asked for the required deployment date of 15 January 2013 to be postponed. The deployment was one of the conditions laid down during the last spectrum auction in Belgium.
