BRUO - Proximus Reference Unbundled Local Loop Offer

BRUO

BRUO - Proximus Reference Unbundled Local Loop Offer

A regulated offer that enables operators to deliver raw copper and shared pair services

Raw copper

If you are an operator in Belgium, and are colocated within a Proximus exchange, our Raw Copper offer provides you with complete control over the facilities connecting end-users to the Proximus network.

The conditions for this service are regulated, and published under Proximus Reference Unbundled Local Loop Offer (BRUO). The operator becomes the only provider of services and is therefore responsible for ensuring that requested services by the end-user are provided.

BRUO

Shared pair

You may be an operator who only wants to provide data services to an end-user, and leave voice communication to Proximus. This is made possible through Proximus Shared Pair offer, where a splitter in the exchange allows you to share with Proximus the use of the pair of copper wires accessing the end-user.
The conditions for this service are regulated under Proximus Reference Unbundled Local Loop Offer (BRUO).

Communication related to BRUO_approved by the BIPT on 21 December 2011

Please note that the BIPT decision of 11 August 2011 has been annulled by the Court of Appeal on 7 January 2015.  Proximus SA/NV therefore applies the disclaimer that it had made in this respect and has adapted the BRUO Reference Offer on a number of elements that had been introduced by the annulled decision (i.e. SLA raw data reporting and ISLA provisioning). For the other elements that had been introduced by the annulled decision and for which Proximus reserves the possibility to adapt the current BRUO Reference Offer (for instance, but not limited to, NFTR compensation), Proximus S.A./N.V. still maintains its rights to apply retro-actively the conditions included in its Reference Offer, as applicable before the BIPT decision of 11 August 2011, until a new BIPT decision determines the new applicable conditions, and as the case may be, to ask reimbursement of any amounts it will have paid in application of the adapted Reference Offer, but which would not have been due under the formerly applicable Reference Offer.

The adapted version of the Reference Offer is published by Proximus S.A./N.V. without any adverse recognition and without prejudice to any of Proximus S.A./NV.'s interests. It shall not be considered as a waiver by Proximus S.A./N.V. of its rights and interests to fully implement its disclaimer regarding the BRUO Reference Offer.

Communication related to BRUO_approved by the BIPT on 10 June 2014

Please note that the BIPT decision of 10 December 2013 has been annulled by the Court of Appeal on 2 November 2016. Proximus SA/NV therefore reserves its rights to apply the disclaimer that it had made in this respect. More specifically, for the elements that had been introduced by the annulled decision (for instance, but not limited to, compensation mechanism at individual level and SLA obligations regarding Non First Time Right Installations), Proximus S.A./N.V. reserves its rights to apply retro-actively the conditions included in the BRUO Reference Offer, as applicable before the BIPT decision of 10 December 2013, until a new BIPT decision determines the new applicable conditions, and as the case may be, to ask reimbursement of any amounts it will have paid in application of the adapted Reference Offer, but which would not have been due under the formerly applicable Reference Offer.
