Belgacom Joins Forces with Samsung to Give Everybody the Possibility to Access Internet Everywhere

Belgacom has partnered with Samsung to offer an internet-enabled tablet together with a fixed and mobile broadband subscription.  The package includes internet at home (Wi-Fi), mobile internet and the 3G-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab for EUR39.99 per month. The HSPA+ Galaxy Tab 10.1v, which supports speeds of up to 21 Mbps, is also available for an extra EUR10 per month. The operator anticipates that the number of smartphones sold in Belgium will double this year.

Belgacom already provides customers with a number of strong innovations in its Internet offering. Belgacom is now taking the next step, making it easier to access the Internet outdoors. 700.000 smartphones were sold in Belgium in 2010 (source: Gfk), and the number is expected to double this year. Analysts also believe the sale of tablets will rise enormously.

Belgacom is committed to guiding customers through these new wireless trends and is now announcing a ground-breaking convergent Internet offer. The offer is unique on the Belgian market and goes much further than existing formulas: it combines an Internet-enabled tablet with a fixed and mobile Internet subscription, for a very attractive price.

This offer has been shaped thanks to a privileged partnership between Belgacom and Samsung, whereby the digital leadership of Samsung as producer of several electronic products & services is combined with Belgacom’s experience as the preferred provider of intuitive end-to-end solutions combing fixed, mobile telecom, IT and media.
