    Pages
    In fixed telephony, you generally pay a subscription to the operator's network as well as national (fixed and mobile) and international calls, either during fixed or peak hours. In mobile telephony, you can use a prepaid card, pay a flat rate or pay only for calls actually made. We invite you to find out about your real consumption profile available on the customer area that your operator makes available to its subscribers on its website and to use it manually or automatically in www.meilleurtarif.be, our price comparison tool.
  • FAQ

    Certain operators have offers that include applications of which the consumption is not deducted from the data volume.

    That practice, often called “zero-rating”, is not explicitly regulated by the net neutrality rules.

    One part of the net neutrality rules generally specifies that Internet traffic should be treated in the same way. 

    It was clear that this meant that it is forbidden to allow zero-rating applications to continue at the normal speed, whereas other traffic was blocked or throttled (e.g. because the data volume in the bundle was used up). 

    But whether that rule also applied to a different way of billing, without blocking or throttling in an unequal way, was not clear. 

    The European Court of Justice has ruled that this is the case. 

    So there is a good chance that zero-rating offers are illegal and will need to be changed.

  • The BIPT publishes its national price benchmarking study for 2021

    Publications › Press release -
    Each year, we notice that the prices for telecommunications services in Belgium are generally quite high compared to the neighbouring countries. However, the new national price benchmarking study carried out by the BIPT shows that consumers can make significant savings by better defining the services they wish and by regularly comparing the telecom offers available on the market to completely benefit from the effect of competition.
