Description

The BIPT compiles the maps of the “fixed” Atlas based on the data communicated by the operators. This map shows the aggregated coverage percentages of the different available speeds. The current map works with minimum speeds of 1 to 100 Mbps. With FTTH and HFC cable networks this speed can go up to 1 Gbps. For now, the FTTH networks have not yet been included in this map, but you can find these on a separate fibre map. Mid-2022, gigabit Internet speeds are already available on cable networks in Flanders, Brussels, Liège, Charleroi, Wavre, and 22 rural municipalities.


Renewed map

The BIPT will soon issue a complete integrated map, that will allow you to verify at address level which speed, technology and operators are available. This will enable you to discover at a glance all of the possibilities available at an address without having to consult the separate maps.


Methodology

The current data are collected for each address in the inventory of addresses in Belgium. The information regarding the addresses is available via the following regional data registers: CRAB (Flemish Region), URBIS (Brussels Region) and PICC (Walloon Region).

Based on the thus collected data the BIPT calculates the aggregated coverage rates in terms of households and population for the different geographical areas of the country, which are depicted on the map. For practical reasons, the BIPT is unable to check the accuracy of the data. However, it analyses their consistency and only displays data which are deemed plausible on the map.
