The price of mobile communication, voice and data usage on a contract have highly decreased between 2012 and 2014. The price of Belgian plans have stayed stable ever since. The Institut Belge des services Portaux et des telecommutions (IBPT) have reported that the Belgian placement has decreased with respect to its neighbors. They observed from this study that there is less and less of a difference in pricing between each member state; the price has risen in the cheapest countries (generally France) and it has decreased in the most expensive countries (Germany)
