Luxembourg's telecommunications market was liberalised in 1998, though it was a slow process at first. The incumbent, Post Telecom, formerly P&T Luxembourg, remains dominant.
Skype, the internet telecommunications company, is based in Luxembourg. Founded in 2002 by Niklas Zennström and Janus Friis, Skype offers high-quality voice communications to anyone with an internet connection anywhere in the world.
ISP & Hosting Services and Connectivity
ISPs in Luxembourg have included Global Media Systems, Luxline Internet Services, Visual Online and Focus Internet Services.
Payment Processing and certification
There are three options for payment processing in Luxembourg. Some ISPs can accept an e-commerce company's payments through their own accounts, or those partnered with WorldPay, for example, can set up accounts with WorldPay for an e-commerce company. Finally, there is a DIY option for e-commerce businesses. Luxembourg-registered companies can use the online processing system launched in June 2000 by the Centre de Transferts Electroniques (Cetrel).
