Belgacom to offer wholesale VDSL2 to KPN Group Belgium

1 Oct 2012

KPN Group Belgium, which offers services under the BASE banner, has announced that it has inked a five-year commercial wholesale agreement with local fixed line incumbent Belgacom for the provisioning of fixed broadband and associated services. Under the terms of the deal Belgacom will reportedly provide VDSL2-based broadband to KPN Group Belgium in a move which the latter claims will allow it to ‘upgrade and enlarge its current fixed portfolio and to fulfil and anticipate the growing customer demand for highly valued fixed services’. A timeframe for the commercial introduction of services using the high speed broadband technology has, however, yet to be announced by KPN; the operator has said it expects to provide launch dates ‘later’.
