Benefits for Belgium

By 2028, we aim to connect 70% of Belgian homes and businesses to Fiber.

Transition to a sustainable infrastructure

As part of our commitment to a sustainable society, we apply circular principles to our network equipment and deploy more energy-efficient networks.

We are continuously testing and implementing intelligent features on our networks to power down some temporarily unused frequencies to reduce the energy consumption.

Outphasing our copper network also means that we use this valuable resource less for our network. The copper we are able to recover is sold for reuse. 

The fiber we use can be entirely produced in Europe and consists of glass made from silicon dioxide, the most abundant element on Earth after oxygen. This resource is found in sand, clay, rocks and even water.

Innovative technologies


Proximus launched its Multigig technology across the entirety of Belgium in July 2023. This technology enables customers to benefit from the fastest Internet in Belgium in terms of uploads, downloads and latency, offering superior Internet speeds (up to 8.5 Gbps download/1 Gbps upload) everywhere that fiber coverage is available.

First demonstration of a quantum-safe network

In 2023, we successfully completed a field trial of a quantum-safe network with our partner Nokia.

Helping businesses become more efficient

Digital collaboration and virtual communication have become more important than ever, reinforcing the importance of investing in fiber as the fixed network technology of the future. Our investment in the rollout of fiber and 5G mobile services will support businesses as they improve their efficiency and achieve their future ambitions.

Job creation

Proximus supports the use of digital tools and digital re-skilling of people of all ages across Belgium. This ranges from the youngest members of society using videoconferencing from Bednet and ClassContact for online education for children living with long-term illnesses, to Diggit where children share their digital knowledge with seniors in a playful way.

For Belgian citizens of working age, we help less-privileged job seekers to build careers in the new digital world, offer ICT training courses, give free coding lessons, and more.
