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. The connection will coincide with other providers (water, gas, electricity and sewage system).

Preparatory work for the connection

There are some things you need to have done before our technician can start with your connection.

Details about the preparatory work
  • 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 par un removable plug
  • Donc forget to foresee a picket to localise the far end of the conduit at the side of the street.
Trips and tricks for this phase
  • 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.
  • Require more info about the instalation of a future proof network in your home? Check our advice here. (.pdf)

New construction

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)
  • Thourough renovation? The Proximus infrastructure might already be present, make sure to protect the cabling
  • No cabling to be found? Send your request and we will do the necessary to connect your home to our infrastructure
