  • The BIPT notices the positive impact of market regulation

    Publications › Press release -
    While a lack of competition was noticed in 2018, the BIPT notices that the regulation implemented these past years is paying off without affecting investment in the new generation networks. The competitive dynamic has been restarted, consumers have access to a larger range of offers and get more value for their money when they buy convergent bundles (i.e. including fixed and mobile services). For an identical consumption profile consumers can find cheaper options today than in 2018. However, the evolution is less beneficial for non-convergent solutions (i.e. only including fixed telecom services); the amount to pay for such solutions has increased compared with 2018 while their content has not changed much. Moreover, Belgium remains expensive when compared with its neighbouring countries.

  • Record level of investments in the telecoms market

    Publications › Press release -
    The decrease in the number of fixed telephony lines continued in 2021. In its annual report on the figures of the electronic communications market, the BIPT noted a further decrease of almost 10% in the number of connections. The fixed broadband Internet traffic continues its upward trend, increasing by almost 13%, and bundles are increasingly used for this purpose. The average data consumption per fixed broadband Internet connection also increased to 239 GB per month, 19 GB more than in 2020. Major investments are being made in order to keep up with this development: the BIPT reports a record level of investments. Last year, investments in the fixed segment increased by no less than 23% to over EUR 1 billion.
