A characterization of the topological spaces that possess a bicomplete fine quasiuniformity is obtained. In particular we show that the fine quasi-uniformity of each sober space, of each first-countable 7^-space and of each quasi-pseudo-metrizable space is bicomplete. Moreover we give examples of T t -spaces that do not admit a bicomplete quasi-uniformity. We obtain several conditions under which the semi-continuous quasi-uniformity of a topological space is bicomplete and observe that the
