Upon deliberation of 13 December 2000, and subsequent to the previous deliberation which eliminated the restrictions as to the eligibility of national calls made from the fixed telephone network and/or the fixed telephone service, effective as from 1 January 2001, the following has been defined:
- The pre-selection option for eligible national calls made by the user/consumer before 1 January 2001 will thereafter also encompass regional and local calls.
- At the moment disaggregating national calls is not foreseen, and providers of the fixed telephone service must thus ensure that the respective clients receive specific information on the conditions of offer, namely the tariff systems applicable to all eligible communications.
- Barring is exclusively carried out according to traffic type. Thus, a client's wish in relation to this matter, duly expressed in a contract signed with an indirect access provider, involves the disbarring of said type of traffic, whether the calls be carried out by a pre-selected provider or by any other provider, including the direct access provider.
- Signing a contract with an indirect access provider (pre-selection) necessarily presupposes the validity of a contract with a direct access provider signed by the same holder, i.e. only the (subscriber) party of the fixed telephony service contract (direct access) may enter into pre-selection with the indirect access operator.
