Total number of active connections in Belgium (3,387,643) increased by 1.83%. 

During the first quarter of 2011 the  residential connections grew by 2,748,294 lines, which is an increase of 2.46% compared to last quarter. Nearly 99% of all residential connections in Belgium are broadband connections.

On the business market, there was a slight decrease -0.81% to 639,349 lines compared to the fourth quarter of 2010, which is mostly due to the 37% decline of the old dial-up connections (-1386 lines) that are no longer used by companies.
