Explanation: "basisgebied" is simply the area where you pay a low fee for your telecommunications. In other words if you make a phone call or send a fax to someone or dial up to a server located within the same "basisgebied" as where you are located you'll be charged a basic rate. Ourtside the area you'll pay more.
So it really has nothing to do with technology. It is a commercial concept.
