Telenet interested in joining Proximus-Orange network sharing agreement

15 Jul 2019

Telenet, Belgium’s second largest mobile network operator (MNO) by subscribers, could be interesting in joining the planned network sharing agreement announced by Proximus and Orange, as long as it does not breach competition rules, reports L’Echo. ‘Although we are confident in the quality of our mobile network, given the high level of infrastructure spend expected in the telecoms sector, we are aware all operators need to adopt a smart approach to future investments,’ explains the operator. Proximus and Orange have said they are ‘open to discussions’ as long as such cooperation is technically feasible. The full-service telecoms provider, which is majority owned by Liberty Global (56.36%), has invested more than EUR250 million (USD282 million) in its network since acquiring Belgian cellco BASE in 2015.
