BELTUG position on guest WiFi: no disproportional restrictions please!


Increasingly, BELTUG members have more questions about their duties and rights when offering guest WiFi to their visitors. Customers, suppliers and other business contacts expect to be able to connect to WiFi anywhere, any time.

But while obligations regarding data retention are clear for operators, they are not so transparent for companies offering WiFi on their private domain.

BELTUG and V-ICT-OR have developed a position on the topics. This includes the need for agreements by all the public organisations involved (BIPT, privacy commission, FCCU, etc.) on the need for identification details.

In addition, we call for the possibility for companies to offer WiFi in their private domain on a wide scale, without disproportional requirements in e.g. data retention or identification. Non-operators should be able to offer WiFi to their visitors without heavy obligations.
