Management service agreement
The management service agreement covers ASTRID's relationships between both the Belgian government and end users. This code of practice offers a clear and transparent framework for ASTRID's remit and financing arrangements, while also providing an operational framework for ASTRID, the state regulatory authorities and end users.
ASTRID's third management service agreement was established by Royal Decree, issued in 2017. This sets out the service obligations and investment schedule over the period 2016-2020 agreed between the federal government and ASTRID.
The new management service agreement comprises three principal strands:
- Ensuring reliability and continuity
- Maintaining and expanding coverage and capacity
- Developing new services for end users, in particular mobile data services
