Conference Call Belgium
België internationale conferentievraag
- With Belgium's advanced telecommunications networks and robust competition,
calling costs within Belgium are low and quality is generally excellent.
However, when it comes to connecting international participants to an international conference call in Belgium,
the process starts to become more complicated due to concerns about incurring international toll charges and the
incompatibility of toll free numbers from one country to the next.
- According to the CIA World Factbook, Belgium has an advanced, highly developed,
and fully automated telecommunications system. Internationally, Belgiumís telecommunications system serves as the
landing point for several submarine cables linking to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. It is also home to
7 satellite earth stations.
Domestically, its telecommunications system makes use of an extensive cable network, nationwide mobile networks,
and limited microwave radio relay network. As of 2012, Belgium had about 4.6 million landlines in use and another
12.88 million mobile cellular subscribers.
As of 2009, Belgium ranked 36th in the world for Internet users (8.113 million) and 21st in the world for Internet
hosts (5.192 million). High speed Internet access first arrived in Belgium in 1999 with ADSL. Belgacom established
the first network and its subsidiary, Skynet, became the first ADSL provider. Since then, more operators have enterd
The Belgian Institute for Posts and Telecommunications (BIPT) serves as the regulatory authority for telecommunications
in Belgium. Created in 1991, BIPT is a semi-governmental body that regulates the electronic communications market,
the postal market, and media in the Brussels-Capital region as well as manages the electromagnetic radio frequency
spectrum. As far as the telecommunications sector goes, BIPT is responsible for promoting competition, protecting
consumersí interests, and contributing to the development of the internal market.
As of early 2015, BIPT listed 25 pages of telecom operators in Belgium. Clearly, competition is robust. Some of
the dominant fixed network operators include: Belgacom, COLT Telecom NV, Mobistar, Scarlet, Telenet, and Tele2
Belgium. Some of the larger mobile operators in Belgium include: Proximus, Mobistar, Mobile Vikings, Base, Telenet,
Ello Mobile, and Scarlet.
Belgium Conference Calls
- Holding International Conference Calls in Belgium
- It is possible to hold international conference calls in Belgium with minimal
fuss Ė even if you have participants scattered around the world. First, letís look at how you might hold a conference
call with participants inside of Belgium:
- If you have a PBX with conferencing capabilities,
youíd likely ask your participants to call in directly using your regular business phone number or your businessís
toll free number.
- If you donít have conferencing capabilities, you
might use a conference calling service that provides a Belgian phone number for your participants to use to join
- While both options work well for participants within Belgium, they donít work
well for international attendees. First, many will balk at dialing a Belgian phone number, especially if they live
in a country with high international calling rates. Second, they canít dial your toll free number; it wonít work
The best solution is to use a global conference calling service
with multiple access strategies to accommodate your international attendees' situations.
Holding an international conference call is nearly identical to holding one inside your own country using a conferencing
service. In both cases, all participants dial a phone number, enter a PIN number, and join the call. However, with
an international conference calling service, each participant will dial a phone number that is local to their countries.
Depending on how you set up the international conference call, this number may be a local phone number or it may
be a toll free number. If itís a local phone number, for example an Italian number for your participants in Italy,
your participants may incur long distance charges based on where they are located in relation to the phone number.
That said, the costs they incur are likely to be much lower than if they had dialed internationally.
If you choose to use toll free access numbers for each country involved in your global conference call, your participants
can dial with confidence. Theyíll immediately recognize the access number as being a legitimate toll free number,
and dial without concerns about potential calling costs. As the host of the toll free Belgian international conference
call, youíd be billed low international rates on a per minute, per caller basis. Rates vary by country and phone
type but are extremely competitive.
Another option is to use the moderator ďdial outĒ tool to automatically dial participants in countries located
outside of Belgium. This feature is often used for participants in countries without toll free support or where
international rates are cost-prohibitive.
