"Stay Home" on mobile phones
During the coronavirus confinement, all Proximus clients and mobile network users will see "Stay home" on their phone. It reminds people how important it is to stick to these health measures.
Every little bit helps
To stop the coronavirus from spreading, it is essential to stay at home and limit physical contact with others as much as possible. Anything that nudges people to respect the confinement measures is welcome, for their own health but also for the health of others.
Proximus cares for its stakeholders and wants to help overcome societal challenges, like this corona pandemic, with the technological solutions it offers. That's why Proximus temporarily changed the name of its network to "Stay home". This network name is visible on the top of connected cell phones.
Part of international efforts
Proximus is not the only cell phone operator that took the initiative to urge people to stay at home in times of corona confinement. In many countries, users will see messages such as StayHome, YoMeQuedoEnCasa (Spanish) or EvdeKal (Turkish) on their cell phone as soon as they switch from Wi-Fi to 4G.
As a company strongly rooted in Belgium, we want to give back to society in a direct and meaningful way. We hope this "Stay home" message, however simple, contributes to keeping people safe.
