Fiber is coming to Vilvoorde: choose for the technology of the future

Ja, je leest het goed! Fiber komt naar een van de grootste steden in de rand van Brussel: Vilvoorde. De uitrol gebeurt in verschillende fasen, wijk voor wijk en straat voor straat. Over enkele jaren zullen het hele stadscentrum en vele andere wijken van Vilvoorde toegang hebben tot fiber.

Our mission is to offer you high-quality fixed Internet access, and it is fiber that will best meet the demands of the future.

How will I benefit from fiber?

Thanks to this thin fiberglass that transmits data over long distances at the speed of light, you're guaranteed an ultra-fast, stable and reliable connection, ultra-low latency when playing games online, and a sharper image than ever before on all your screens. Of all Internet technologies, fiber is the best choice for the future!

What’s more, unlike most other operators who stop the roll-out of fiber at street level, Proximus fiber is pulled right into your home or business, to ensure outstanding performance.

Want to test the speed of your current Internet connection? Test it here!

But how is it actually installed?

1. We install the optical-fiber cable in your street

We lay our optical-fiber cable in your neighborhood street by street. To allow the installation into your home or business, preparatory work is needed (excavation or façade work). We make sure you are kept informed at every stage of the process and do our utmost to minimize the inconvenience.

2. We connect your home or business to fiber free of charge.

Free of charge

Value of the installation: €350 incl. VAT for residential customers, and €289 excl. VAT for the self-employed and small businesses. Valid for each activation of a Tuttimus Fiber, Familus Fiber, Minimus Fiber, Epic Combo Fiber, Bizz All-in Fiber or Bizz Office Fiber pack. If you opt for another Fiber pack (Internet Fiber + TV, Internet Fiber + Telephony, Telephony + TV or Internet Fiber + mobile + TV) or Internet Fiber on its own, an installation fee will be billed for a new installation: €59 incl. VAT for residential customers and €48.76 excl. VAT for the self-employed and small businesses.

Once the works have been completed in your street, the optical-fiber cable will be pulled discretely into your premises. You will then be contacted to make an appointment with one of our technicians, who will install the connection box (ideally, close to a power outlet) and activate your Fiber pack. If you live in a building, your trustee will be kept informed and will have to give his approval for an optical-fiber cable to be pulled into each apartment.

Did you know...

As soon as the fiber cables are installed in a neighborhood, we gradually start uninstalling the traditional copper cables. From that moment on, if you want to continue surfing the Internet, making calls, or watching TV, you have to switch to fiber technology.

So, opt for optical fiber today and take advantage of the fact that we are currently in your neighborhood installing it free of charge.
