The Benelux countries are Belgium, The Netherlands, and Luxembourg, all of which are small countries by European standards, yet leaders in technology use. Trends and developments in telecommunications, mobile, Internet, broadband, digital TV and converging media including VoIP, VoD and IPTV developments. Subjects include:
BuddeComm’s latest Benelux Annual Publication, ‘2007 Telecoms, Mobile and Broadband in the Benelux Market’, profiles three of Europe’s smaller but progressive telecom markets. Several sectors including mobile take-up and digital TV are influenced by the language and demographic landscape, as well as by the larger populations of neighbouring France and Germany. Luxembourg also hosts a number of European Union institutions, which has encouraged investment in telecom infrastructure.
Broadband developed strongly in these markets in 2007. The Netherlands retains the strongest broadband infrastructure in Europe and the greatest concentration of fibre deployment. Business models based on municipal involvement in infrastructure builds remains a keystone of national broadband success, which have influenced developments elsewhere in Europe.
This report presents a concise overview of sector liberalisation and privatisation in the Benelux countries, the development of product offerings for both mobile and broadband technologies, essential operator statistics in all telecom sectors, and the growing popularity of convergence and triple play services.
