Bundled calculator - how it works

1.    Introduction Object of the "bundles" module:

This module allows you to compare the average monthly cost of tariff plans available on the Belgian residential market for bundles

 

 

§ or by using the slider at the top of the page in the “quick search” part.

 

This indicative tool can help you to choose a specific tariff plan from the different offers currently available for sale on the market and present in the tariff simulator.

2.   Scope of the "bundles" module:

This module only compares bundled offers marketed under the name of “pack”, “duo”, “double Play”, “trio”, “triple Play” through the various sales channels of the telecommunications operators operating on the Belgian residential market. In particular, the purpose of the bundles module is by no means to compare “mixed” offers, either from a single operator or from several operators.

3.   Entering your query 

The first step consists in determining which services should be included in your bundle. For that purpose, you have to click on the corresponding boxes above the icons on the screen below.  To establish which operators are likely to provide those services at the location of the connection for which you make a tariff simulation, you have to indicate the postcode of that location.

Next you are asked what type of installation you wish to opt for: you either entrust a technician with this task or you do it yourself. By default, the tariff simulator assumes you opt for an installation by yourself. 

You also have to specify whether or not you want the effect of the currently valid special offers to appear in the results. We draw your attention to the fact that, by default, the plans presented by the tariff simulator are those corresponding to the consumption profile that you have entered taking into account the existing special offers.

This approach results from the will of BIPT to allow the user to make the most of the special offers proposed by the operators on the Belgian residential telecommunications market. It is of course still possible to get results excluding special offers by modifying the answer to the question regarding the taking into account of the special offers.

However, we draw your attention to the fact that some of them are only accessible if certain conditions are met. If this is the case, the operator will already have filled in a text field specifying the eligibility conditions for the special offers that are subject to conditions. You will find them in the pink field under the plan's name.

 

The average monthly cost displayed takes account of all the special offers encoded in the simulator. Please check that you do meet the eligibility conditions for the special offers subject to conditions in order to get this service at the advertised price. 



After entering this information, you can detail the usage conditions of the different components of your bundle by clicking on the button “Next".

 

Next you are directed to the various components of the bundle. To obtain explanation about those various services, please click on the components wanted and consult the corresponding help topics:
