Belgian mobile prices show little opportunity for 4th operator

Tuesday 19 June 2018 | 12:21 CET | Author: Marion ter Welle | Market Commentary
De Croo claims that Belgium is an expensive country for mobile data and that its mobile data usage is lagging other countries. Using data from Telecompaper's latest EU Benchmark report on mobile pricing we take a look at whether this claim holds up. In general, the Q1 data shows that Belgium is indeed an expensive country for certain types of Sim-only plans. However, the costs in Belgium are quite average compared to other Western European countries for larger plans with more than 1,000 minutes and more than 10GB.*
