Mobile broadband services are offered by all three MNOs and almost complete population coverage has been reached for 3G and 4G LTE thanks to extensive investment made by the Belgian operators. According to latest ITU data (June 2017) mobile coverage reaches 100% of the population, and 4G LTE also accessible by 100% of Belgians.
