In the 2022 annual report, the BIPT gives an overview of the past year.
The past year was first and foremost characterised by the advent of 5G in Belgium following the allocation of new 5G frequencies by the BIPT. The multi-band auction resulted in granting rights of use to five companies: the three mobile operators were joined by a consortium presenting itself as the future 4th mobile operator and by an IT player active in the B2B segment.
The year 2022 also saw an acceleration in the deployment of optical fibre, and the arrival of the Wi-Fi 6E standard.
In 2022, the electronic communications market also experienced economic developments. Several alternative operators were bought by the traditional operators. New partnerships or joint ventures were formed among the latter, mainly in the field of infrastructure.
It is in this context, where regulation remains vital, that the BIPT completed the execution of its Strategic Plan 2020-2022.
The annual report presents how the four strategic axes were translated into action via the Operational Plan 2022 and the day-to-day operation of the BIPT.
The main trends observed by the BIPT on the electronic communications, postal services and media markets are also described in the annual report.
