Belgian cellcos win tower tax battle

20 Jul 2015

The Belgian cellular operators Mobistar, Proximus and BASE have been successful in their legal attempt to overturn a tax on mobile network towers imposed by the Wallonia region in the south of the country. Belgium’s Constitutional Court said the regional government had no authority to impose such a tax, De Tijd reports. Wallonia had been taxing operators up to EUR8,000 (USD8,660) per site since implementing the levy in 2013.
