Broadband relatively cheap in Belgium
Forrester Research recently showed that 10% of Belgian homes are equipped with broadband, either via the cable or via ADSL. This puts Belgium in an impressive third place in the European league table, behind Sweden (13%) and the Netherlands (12%).
Strong competition between Belgacom and Telenet has been a key factor in encouraging the greater availability of broadband services. As a result, broadband is available in almost every part of Belgium, whilst in many other countries there are whole regions with little or no access. Moreover, broadband is relatively cheap in Belgium – here the average cost of broadband internet is about 40 euro, whereas consumers in Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom are paying around 60 euro.
