In order to allow an initial roll-out of 5G in Belgium and to ensure the continuity of the service provision for current 2G and 3G licence holders, the BIPT proposes different solutions.

It wants to be able to renew the 2G and 3G user rights once the licence will have expired in 2021 as well, until new user rights can be granted.

Pending a political agreement between the Federal Government and the federal entities, the BIPT suggests using temporary user rights for the introduction of the new 5G technology.
