Fiber is the technology of the future and uses light to transport signals. It is therefore much faster than the traditional copper cables.
The last stretch, from the street to your home, still had traditional cables. We’re changing that, so you can enjoy the best possible network experience. A large part of the Proximus network today consists of optical fiber.
With fiber, you benefit from an ultra-fast Internet connection, without any loss of quality, and no matter with how many people or devices you’re surfing simultaneously.
With fiber, you benefit from a super-fast and stable Internet, ultra-low latency, the sharpest image on all your screens and more importantly, you are ready for the future!
In the long term, this new network will replace our traditional copper network.
When you move, all you need to do is to activate your fiber products, by entering your address in our eligibility test tool and following the various steps. You can also call us at 0800 22 800.
Check, on the basis of your address, whether Proximus is planning to install fiber in your street.
As the fiber roll-out takes place in several phases, your address may not (yet) be part of an area in which works are planned.
Check whether fiber is available for your home or whether your address is part of an area in which works are planned.
In case of the former, you will be invited to activate your fiber products. In case of the latter, you can complete our form in order to be contacted by one of our staff members to discuss the next steps. If your address is part of an area in which works are not yet planned, you will be contacted personally once fiber does become available for your home. Would you like more information? Visit a Proximus Shop near you or call us at 0800 22 800.
Mbps is a measure of the amount of data that can be transferred within one second, and it’s worldwide used to quantify Internet speeds.
Mbps means megabits per second. GIGA means Gigabits per seconds (Gbps).. One Gigabit is 1.000 megabits….it is very fast!
When Proximus display a speed, it’s almost always the download speed. When a Fiber Internet product is listed at 350 Mbps, it means the connection can download up to 350 megabits of data per second. Example, with a connection of 1 Gigabits per second, you download a movie with the weight of 1,5 gigabits in only 12 seconds.
Fiber is currently being deployed in several major cities in Belgium: Aalst, Antwerp-Diamant, Antwerp-East, Brussels-Anspach, Charleroi, Deurne, Evere, Ghent, Hasselt, Knokke-Heist, Kortrijk, Leuven, Liège, Mechelen, Namur, Roeselare , Vilvoorde, Antwerp-West, Ostend and Uccle.
The objective is to provide an ultra-fast and stable network, capable of easily absorbing the data traffic that will continue to grow in the years to come.
Work is also planned in the following cities: Sint Niklaas and La Louvière.
