    Publications › Press release -
    Brussels, 11 June 2014 – Mobile broadband penetration has risen from 16% (2011) to 45.7%. This means that over 45% of all mobile users also use mobile data on their smartphones or tablets.  Despite catching up Belgium is still below the EU average (62.4 %). Although mobile broadband use has grown significantly in the past 2 years, there are still a number of bottlenecks, such as the emission standards, taxes on mobile infrastructures, information to consumers that still curb the growth of mobile broadband in Belgium. Therefore, in a study carried out by IDATE Consulting for BIPT, 8 recommendations are made to promote mobile broadband penetration in Belgium.
