BIPT extends KPN Group Belgium 2G license

Friday 28 June 2013 | 12:01 CET | News
Belgian regulator BIPT has extended the 900 MHz license of KPN Group Belgium (Base) to 2 July 2018. KPN will return the 121-124 channels, the 914,1-914.9 MHz frequency block, joined to 959.1-959.9 MHz. The three existing operators will open some of their spectrum for newcomer Telenet, the fourth 3G license holder, which is still not complying to its network rollout obligations, BIPT said.
