Once or twice a year, BIPT paints a “picture” of the applicable rates on the residential market for electronic communications services. Hundreds of tariff plans are analysed according to pre-established consumption profiles. This way, consumers can compare telecommunications products (fixed telephony, prepaid and postpaid mobile telephony, fixed Internet and fixed triple play) available on the market.
Each year since 2012, BIPT carries out a comparative price study of telecommunications products in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. More than 500 tariff plans for residential users are analysed in order to compare the price level of telecommunication products in the Belgian market with the one that applies for similar products in neighbouring countries.
