Belgian mobile providers Proximus and Orange Belgium have signed a deal that paves the way for a mobile access network sharing agreement by the end of the year. The companies expect the term sheet agreement, which will eventually create a joint venture, to increase the quality of the mobile network, provide deeper indoor coverage and allow a faster and more comprehensive deployment of 5G in the country.
