Belgian mobile market: prepaid share falls on mandatory registration, shift to quad-play

Wednesday 7 June 2017 | 08:00 CET | Author: Marion ter Welle | Background

Prepaid customers accounted for 23.3 percent of all mobile customers (excluding MVNOs) at the end of March, down from 27.8 percent a year earlier and just over 40 percent two years ago, according to Telecompaper's latest research on the Belgian Mobile market.
