The BIPT has examined the price level of telecom products in a group of six countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the United Kingdom). 

The purpose of this study is to verify how the price level of telecom products for residential users on the Belgian market compares to the price level of similar products in the countries that surround us. The analysis is carried out based on the tariff plan data gathered in November 2021. 

This study reveals that the tariffs for telecommunications services in Belgium are generally high when compared to neighbouring countries. Even if this finding must be qualified regarding certain needs, e.g. those concerning basic mobile services, for which Belgium is rather competitive, our country is generally more and more expensive compared to its neighbours as voice and data needs increase. For consumers using bundles (a combination of Internet, TV and fixed and/or mobile telephony services), Belgian tariffs are generally high and, as for mobile offers, Belgian consumers pay a significantly higher tariff as their needs increase.
