Faster, wider, and more cost-efficient with our partners

By collaborating with investment partners, we can get more done in a cost-efficient way. These collaborations bring Proximus another step closer to its ultimate objective, creating an open, future-proof network that connects every home and business in Belgium to high or very high-speed connectivity solutions.

Wallonia

We partner with Eurofiber in Wallonia.
The aim of this JV is to connect at least 500,000 homes and businesses in Wallonia by 2028.

Flanders

We set up a JV called Fiberklaar  with EQT Infrastructure  in Flanders.

Fiberklaar’s goal is  to connect at least 1.5 million homes and businesses in Flanders by 2028.

Brussels

We continue to accelerate our fiber roll-out in Brussels with the goal of covering the entire Brussels Capital Region by the end of 2026.

Phasing out our existing copper network

Increasing efficiency and reducing costs by replacing copper

Once Fiber is active in a new city, we notify our customers and, step-by-step, migrate them from our copper network to Fiber. By switching off our copper network, we become more efficient, lower our operational costs, and contribute to our sustainability ambitions.

We plan to deactivate the existing copper network in a specific zone within 5 years of the start of Fiber installation works. In some cases, we are able to speed up the copper phase-out, for example, when roadworks are planned in an area that is already covered by Fiber. This is both efficient and reduces costs. Plus, we recycle 500 tons of copper per year, giving it a second life.

Connecting less densely populated areas

White zones

We have heavily invested in new technologies to improve connectivity in rural areas and so-called white zones, places where there is a lack of connectivity. We believe that this is essential if we are to ensure that everyone, everywhere has access to the opportunities offered by the digital world.
