The BIPT is publishing its international comparative price study for 2019

The study published by the BIPT on its website today reveals varying results for the comparison of the residential prices for telecom products in Belgium with its neighbouring countries. As regards the bundles that are most representative for our country (including an Internet speed of at least 100 Mbps) and mobile telephony (including 5G data consumption), Belgium holds a middle position in the group of countries examined but the price difference compared to the cheaper neighbouring countries is significant. Subscriptions including big mobile data bundles are among the most expensive. Purchasing an Internet subscription separately - a product type that is only provided in a limited number of neighbouring countries - is the cheapest in Belgium. Stand-alone Internet subscriptions in Belgium, however, entail volume limitations, which is rather exceptional for the EU. On the other hand, unlimited stand-alone broadband Internet services are very expensive in our country.
