How much bandwidth do I use?

How many megabytes you need is a very individual question. But there are some indications. According Mobistar uses a mobile surfer on his mobile average of 10 megabytes per month. Laptop and Tablet surfers consume an average of 200 megabytes per month (figures from the first quarter of 2012). Base has fifty megabytes per month per customer regardless of the device (figures from late 2011).

Can you everywhere mobile browsing?

Yes and no. Mobistar and Proximus have 3G coverage respectively more than 91 and 97 percent of the population. The remainder is largely completed by Edge (2G). This is the slower 3G predecessor. In Base 3G network currently reaches just over 85 percent of the population.

Please note that these networks particularly fast in the city. About the same speed in a deserted place in the Ardennes or on a speeding train hoped for, will be disappointed.

The biggest risk is an unexpectedly high bill. Modern Smartphones are regularly connected to the Internet (for example, to check for new mails). Who then no mobile internet subscription has been sitting, often pay a lot more.

Moreover, mobile internet, like telephoning abroad, a lot more expensive. Fortunately Europe this summer maximum rates imposed for data roaming. So you pay within the EU up to 70 cents per megabyte (excluding VAT). Outside Europe, switch your mobile web best from your mobile device, unless you really need it.
