Landlines

There are several telephone companies in Belgium, but to be connected to the landline network, an initial subscription must be taken with Belgacom, the national Belgian telephone company. Belgacom offers telephone and Internet services for private individuals and small companies, as well as medium and large entities.

Once a contract has been signed with Belgacom, the customer is free to choose services from any provider. Many providers offer Internet and mobile phone services as well as landline services, and most offer packages incorporating all three.
