    I should have the best internet service you can get in Belgium
    I have Telenet

    I gave you the correct information regarding the internet service that I own
    It is not possible to get a better internet service in Belgium than the one I have now
    The download is much better than the upload but it is like that. I can not get better. I really have 900 Mbits speed when I do the internet test

    Can you put the gateway with required hardware and bandwidth in a datacenter near your location ?
