How do I get fiber?

Questions that you may still have

As a technology of the future, fiber transmits data over great distances at the speed of light. The advantages are numerous, including a super-fast and much more stable Internet connection.

Proximus is modernizing its network (teaming up with other partners such as Fiberklaar and Unifiber) and is gradually replacing its current copper cables with fiber cables. Ultimately, the Proximus copper network will be completely replaced by this new technology.

Thanks to a close collaboration with the construction sector, most new housing estates and apartment buildings are swiftly connected to our fiber network.

And unlike most other operators, Proximus takes the fiber right into your home. This guarantees you the best possible performance, today as well as tomorrow.

Your current copper cable will soon have to be replaced. Fiber, which will be rolled out instead, meets the need for ever greater connectivity. It guarantees you better performance today and tomorrow.

With fiber, you'll have access to super-fast and stable Internet, ultra-low latency, a sharper than ever image on all your screens and, most importantly, you'll be equipped for the future:

  • Super-fast, stable Internet: no downtime or slowdowns when importing or exporting documents, watching videos and playing online, no matter how many people or devices are connected at the same time.
  • Ultra-low latency: latency is the delay between a data transfer request and the response to that request. Indeed, when you play online, every millisecond counts. With fiber, you stay one step ahead of your opponents.
  • A sharper picture than ever before on all your screens: Whether on TV, tablet or smartphone, with fiber, you won’t miss even the tiniest detail.
  • Future-proof: tomorrow, your home will be increasingly connected thanks to the Internet. With fiber in your home, this evolution is child's play.

Already a Proximus customer? Your current copper cable will soon have to be replaced by fiber anyway. Fiber meets the need for ever greater connectivity. Furthermore, it guarantees you better performance today and tomorrow.

Mbps is the unit that measures the amount of data transferred in one second. This measuring unit for data transmission is used worldwide to quantify Internet speeds. Mbps stands for megabit per second. Gbps (or GIGA) stands for gigabit per second. One gigabit (or 1 GIGA) corresponds to 1,000 megabits, which is very fast!

The speeds advertised by Proximus correspond to download and upload speeds. When a fiber product claims Internet speeds of up to 1 GIGA, this means that the connection is capable of downloading up to 1 gigabit of data per second. With a 1 gigabit per second connection, you can download a 1.5 gigabit movie in just 12 seconds. At traditional speed (70 Mbps), this download takes you almost three minutes.

Faster and more stable, fiber is also more environmentally friendly. It uses up to 12 times less energy to send data than your current copper cable! Switching to fiber makes sense for the environment and the climate.

Fiber consists of glass made from silicon dioxide, the most abundant element on earth after oxygen. It is found in sand, clay, rocks and even water. Its mining is not harmful to the environment.

Compared to copper, the production of fiber has a small environmental footprint: 0.06 kg of CO2 for glass fiber compared with 1000 kg for 2 kg of copper wire (used for your current connection).

Finally, Proximus recycles up to 500 tonnes of copper per year to give it a second life.

The installation takes between two and four hours, but don't worry, the connection is only cut off for a few minutes. So you can continue your activities without any problems.

For new housing estates and apartment buildings, which are usually already connected to our fiber network, the technician only activates your services on the fiber network, which takes much less time.

Where is fiber available?

Fiber is available in several major Belgian cities and is being rolled out in others. It is also being deployed on industrial estates and in industrial buildings, as well as most new housing estates and apartment buildings.

Thanks to our partnerships with Fiberklaar in Flanders and Unifiber in Wallonia, the roll-out of fiber will pick up speed in the coming months and years, in order to offer you the best network available. The aim is to provide an ultra-fast and stable network that can easily absorb the data traffic that will continue to grow in the years to come.
