The European Court of Justice has imposed a daily fine of €5,000 ($5,613) on Belgium for failing to properly implement EU law governing high-speed electronic communications networks. The court found that Belgium has been slow to roll out high-speed broadband in its capital, which is home to EU institutions such as the European Commission and European Parliament.
