WHAT IS OUR POSITION ?
The telecom sector creates a large number of direct (21,541) and indirect (28,000²) jobs in Belgium, with over a third of them in Flanders.
The aim must be to take Flanders to the absolute top in 2020 in terms of super-fast gigabit Internet and 5G. This is a cornerstone for further digitisation, and thus for further economic and social development in the region. In 2020, we want to have the first 5G city in Flanders.
