When your electrician comes by to do the electrical works, ask him to install the "Smarttube" as well. This is a cable certified by Proximus. Your electrician can take care of everything; you don't need to be present during the installation.

Plan your connection to our infrastructure
Planning for your connection
to the Proximus infrastructure
It's important to foresee your connection to the Proximus infrastructure during the construction/renovation phase. That way you avoid more digging work later. Nobody likes the front yard to be distroyed, for cabling… You’re free to choose Proximus later on, for your products and services.
Request your connection when the structural works are done and roof, windows and doors are placed. Do you want to connect your home to electricity, natural gas, water, television, telephone and the Internet? Simplify your life with the Connect My Home service in Wallonia: a single request for several connections, a single contact person, and a single day to carry out all the necessary work.
Prepare the external cabling
There are some things you have to foresee before we can install the external cabling and connect your building to our infrastructure:
- Dig a 60-cm-deep trench, in a straight line and perpendicular to the building line
- Install a hard, smooth-walled PVC conduit for future cables. The conduit should be 50 mm in diameter with a cable pull-wire that exceeds by 50 cm at each side.
- The conduit should enter the construction via the energy curve or via an opening in the masonry.
- Both sides of the conduit should be hermetically closed by a removable plug
- Don't forget to foresee a picket to localise the far end of the conduit at the side of the street.
Request your connection
The connection to the infrastructure costs €90 and contains:
- Installation of the cable, from the street (alignment) to the its actual connection (usually, the garage)
- Welding of this cable onto the distribution cable (public domain)
- Installation of the point of connection connection (usually, the garage)

*Remarks concerning the costs
The mentioned price of € 90 is only valid for work on private domain, when the trench is well present. If Proximus needs to dig the trench, you will be charged by the metre and the cost depends on the state of the ground (soil, concrete (with or without sawing work) or pavement).
If the Proximus infrastructure isn’t present in the public domain (street), Proximus will send you an estimate of the costs before starting the work. Insert your data in the form behind “Request your connection”.
