By bringing together not only access and service providers but also hosting and transit providers, ISPA aims to serve as a rallying point for the Internet industry so as to ensure that the potential of the Internet is used to the full, from the point of view of both consumers and professionals.

ISPA considers it to be vitally important to take account of the opportunities offered by the rapid and ongoing expansion of the Internet sector, where the turnover amount to 7,2 billion euros in 2016 with a share of investments of 19,6%.

The Internet has become an integral part of our society through over 4 million active connections in Belgium, and it is in this sector, characterised by innovation and new technologies, that ISPA actively supports the role of the industry through its various activities.
