Orange Belgium confirms its interest in an industrial partnership with Nethys and Brutélé

Orange Belgium confirms having officially informed Nethys and Brutélé about its interest in an industrial partnership, with the support of the Orange Group.

At this stage, it is only a declaration of interest, fully respecting the governance of Nethys and Brutélé.

Orange Belgium believes that an industrial partnership between Orange Belgium and Nethys and Brutélé would represent the best opportunity for them, their customers (residential and enterprise), employees and shareholders.

Such a partnership would lead to the creation of a convergent national telecom operator with strong roots in Wallonia and the Brussels region, and to the launch of a major multi-year investment plan for very high-speed fixed and mobile networks in the Walloon and Brussels region. Furthermore, it would create a healthy, structural competition between 3 convergent players on the Belgian market, to the benefit of consumers.
