Virus impact over each market - telecom operators, government agencies and regulators' responses - revised forecasts for the next 5 years.
Belgium’s market for bundled services has grown on the back of upgraded cable and DSL infrastructure and by a growing concentration among operators to develop fibre networks. The broadcasting sector is characterised by language variations to accommodate the French and Dutch speaking regions. Analogue broadcasts have been switched off nationally, which enabled digital dividend spectrum to be auctioned for mobile broadband services at the end of 2013.
In recent months there has been renewed impetus in the digital media market, particularly following the acquisition of KNP’s BASE subsidiary by Liberty Global’s Telenet division. This has created a multi-play operator providing viable competition to Proximus for bundled service offerings
This report provides a review of bundled services developments, as well as a comprehensive overview of the country’s digital media market. It provides statistics on the major service providers, and also notes the status of digital, cable and satellite TV.
Orange Belgium adds VoD to quintuple-play bundle; Proximus extends TV Everywhere service nationally; courts uphold Open Cable regulation for resale of analogue TV services, access to digital TV and the resale of broadband access; new telecom law allows customers to cancel subscriptions within two months; Altice sells its SFR Belgium unit to Telenet; report includes the regulator’s market data update for 2016, regulators’ 2016 annual report, telcos’ financial and operating data to Q1 2017, recent market developments.

As you know, I have resigned from the Labor Ministry and have decided not to re-contest the seat of Charlton at the next election – both for personal reasons.
Before leaving Parliament, I particularly wish to record my thanks to you for your generous and constructive participation in the deliberations that generated significant economic policy reforms for the Australian community. Continuous economic transformation is a key challenge that faces all Governments.
The development of sound public policy should always be contestable. Ultimately, good and equitable outcomes are not concessions to any particular interest group, but the careful balancing of interests to create the greatest possible benefit for the nation. You have contributed to that, and I sincerely thank you for it.
Greg Combet, Former Minister for Climate Change, Industry and Innovation
