The BIPT is publishing the third annual report on the monitoring of net neutrality in Belgium.

Some highlights:

  • This past year the BIPT rolled out important projects regarding the measurement of the quality of experience of the Internet access service. For example, the BIPT launched a crowdsourcing application that allows to measure the quality of experience in the field by way of the users. The BIPT also published on its new data portal www.bipt-data.be the results of drive tests carried out with BIPT measuring vehicles.
  • Zero-rating was mainly monitored in the period from 01 May 2018 to 30 April 2019, generally without there appearing to be a reason for intervention. There were two cases (zero-rating with Epic and during Belgian Red Devils matches during the 2018 WC) that the BIPT thought it was necessary to intervene, both times with regard to Proximus.
  • No cases of blocking services or applications in the network have been found.
  • As for end-users’ choic the mobile data volumes included in the ISP offers have again increased, in order to set off the increasing mobile data traffic.
