Proximus, Orange resume preparations for network joint venture

Wednesday 18 March 2020 | 14:20 CET | News
Proximus and Orange Belgium have resumed preparations for their mobile network joint venture. The Belgian Competition Authority suspended the planned venture between the two companies in January, saying it wanted to collect more information about the plans. The move followed a complaint from Telenet, Belgium's third mobile operator. The authority said on 17 March that the provisional measures will now end. Preparations for sharing the networks, first announced in July, can now resume.
