Belgium opens consultation on white area rollouts

9 Sep 2022

The Belgian government has opened a consultation covering the development of broadband infrastructure in so-called white areas, where a network capable of delivering download rates of at least 100Mbps is not available and is unlikely to be deployed in the foreseeable future. EUR40.7 million (USD40.7 million) has been set aside to promote network rollouts in these underserved areas, with telcos able to bid to take part in the subsidised rollout scheme.
