Biba is an initiative started at the end of 2002 by the Belgian Minister of Telecommunications, Rik Daems,
to foster Broadband applications development. Belgium is at present one of the most advanced countries
as far as the number of Broadband users per habitant is concerned. Also Belgium has at present
a geographical coverage of terrestrial Broadband access that covers at least 98% of the population.
The Platform is open to all organizations and companies willing to play an active role in this development.
As from the start, the participants agreed to create a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for setting the scene
and hereby are the major objectives as of this MoU.
