Belgian Internet Service Providers Association

ISPA Belgium brings together the entirety of the Internet industry ecosystem in Belgium, incorporating the companies that make the internet work, such as access providers, hosters, transit providers, datacenters and platforms. The association ensures that the voice of the Internet community is heard and understood by policy makers and the general public, to enable the creation of digital friendly, future-oriented & coherent policies in Belgium


ISPA considers it to be vitally important to take account of the opportunities offered by the rapid and ongoing expansion of the Internet sector, where the turnover amount to 7,2 billion euros in 2016 with a share of investments of 19,6%. In addition to the indirect contributions made to society, the Belgian Internet economy and the 1,554 million registered domain names are themselves a major source of activity and investment for the economy and employment.

The Internet has become an integral part of our society through over 4 million active connections in Belgium, and it is in this sector, characterised by innovation and new technologies, that ISPA actively supports the role of the industry through its various activities.
