Record level of investment in the telecommunications sector as well
Brussels, June12, 2018 – the publication of the annual statistics of BIPT relating to the telecommunications sector shows a record level of investment and a rising turnover. Concerning the Internet, we found that 52% of the broadband lines offer a speed above 100 MB. Concerning the fixed telephony market, the number of lines continues to decline. In the mobile market, the number of active SIM cards decreases as well. However, we notice the further strong growth of data usage to 1.17 gigabytes per month. In the still growing bundle market, 4-play shows the strongest increase, while 3-play remains the most popular bundle. Finally, the number of TV households continues to grow and already 92% watches digital TV.
