Choose for the technology of the future

Saint-Ghislain switches to fiber

In order to accelerate the deployment of fiber in Wallonia, Proximus has teamed up with network builder Unifiber. Unifiber is currently installing fiber in  Saint-Ghislain. This ultra-fast and stable network will be able to easily absorb the data traffic that will continue to grow in the future. It is being deployed in the downtown core and surrounding areas and will eventually replace the current copper cable network.

Three main installation steps

  1. 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 facade work. We'll do everything we can to minimize disruption and will keep you informed of the schedule.
