5 reasons to switch to optical fiber now

Do you know that Proximus already has a 21,000 km optical fiber network. In December 2016, Proximus announced an investment plan of 3 billion euros in the massive deployment of optical fiber to cover 85% of professional sites within in a few years. Optical fiber is the future: companies that use innovative networks such as optical fiber can increase their productivity by 10% and offer a consistently high service level to their customers.

Has optical fiber become indispensable? Here are 5 good reasons why:
  1. Speed as an asset

    Optical fiber is made of extremely fine glass threads through which laser light is switched on and off. Optical fiber networks are extremely fast and efficient: 300,000 km/sec, considerably quicker than any other network. 

  2. Continuity assured

    Thanks to optical fiber, your data network is stable and performant, even in case of power outage. Further you don't run any security risks: optical fiber is perfectly secure.

  3. Increased efficiency

    Your digital needs are always growing. You are using more and more applications and devices. Your administration is dealt with online. Your staff work from home or on the road more often. Your sales people have to send larger files more often. With an optical fiber connection, your speed and bandwidth can grow flexibly in line with the needs of your company. 

  4. Even more satisfied customers

    An optical fiber network guarantees you the fastest speed at all times, even during peak periods. Your website, your reservation system or your web shop enjoy a fast connection at all times.

  5. Innovative perspectives

    Optical fiber allows you to imagine new online services, and new ways of communicating digitally with your customers, and even new business models. Volvo Cars, for instance, has launched Volvo Personal Service. The car and customer details are managed online to ensure that the vehicle is serviced quickly and efficiently, while the customer waits in a lounge with wi-fi access.
