Take the plug out of the socket during a storm

Storms and lightning may be difficult to predict, but you can still take the necessary precautions.

Tip: when you unplug your electrical appliances and multimedia, don't forget your Proximus equipment. It's just as sensitive as any other electrical device!

So always unplug your modem, decoders, and Wi-Fi devices during a storm. And check the weather forecast on meteo.be.

Extra tip from our experts

Make sure the plug is at least 1 meter away from the socket, to avoid the risk of a lightning spark jumping across. So play it safe, and you won't miss any Red Devils action during these "charged" periods!
