Belgian mobile market revenues stabilising after regulation causes prepaid share to drop significantly

Thursday 16 November 2017 | 11:53 CET | Author: Marion ter Welle | Background
The biggest change on the mobile market in Belgium in the past year was the law requiring prepaid users to be registered with their provider. In Q3 2017, the operators had to deactivate the remaining unregistered prepaid cards. The new law caused some MVNOs to cease their activities after an initial registration deadline in June, and Scarlet, Proximus's low-cost brand, recently stopped offering prepaid to new customers.
