With more than €1 billion investment per year, Proximus is the biggest investor in future-proof digital infrastructure in Belgium. The objective? Accelerate the fiber and 5G roll-out to offer speeds of several gigabits per second in the near future and thus give citizens and businesses access to top-quality fixed and mobile connectivity, so that they can take advantage of the opportunities of the digital world.

Fiber for Belgium

Data traffic and digital services are growing, mainly driven by the use of videos, cloud apps and the Internet of Things. To prepare its infrastructure for the customers’ future needs Proximus has decided to accelerate its existing fiber investment plan. The ambition is to connect 2.4M houses to fiber, with speeds up to 1 GIGA per second - by 2026.

That is why, on top of extending the coverage of its 4G network (population-coverage: 100% outdoor and 99,9% in-house coverage), Proximus has launched 5G, as first operator in Belgium.
