Crystal clear: the advantages of Fiber for your business

To prepare your business for the future, you need a fast and reliable internet connection. If you opt for Fiber, you get a technology that grows alongside the digital needs of your business. But how does it work, and why would you choose Fiber?

How does Fibre work?

Fiber is built up of fine threads of glass that guide laserlight. It’s incredibly fast and efficient: 300,000 km/sec. That makes it a far sight faster and more reliable than any other network technology. The last part of the connection, from the street into your business, used to be traditional copper of coax. With internet use increasing at its current rapid rate, Proximus is the only provider in Belgium to bring Fiber straight into your business.

Send a video file of 1.5 GB, for instance and that would take about 56 secs on a Fiber connection. With a standard internet connection, you’d have to wait 2 minutes.

The advantages?
  • Surf, work online and share files faster than ever
  • A safe and stable internet connections without interruptions
  • Continuous, fast connections, regardless of how many people are online simultaneously
  • You’re set to face the challenges of digital tools now, and in the future
  • Free connection for the duration of Fiber works in your street
