Proximus extends FTTH network in Vilvoorde

6 Jun 2019

Belgian full-service telecoms operator Proximus has announced plans to extend its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in the city of Vilvoorde, where it already covers six industrial zones and 600 new homes. The company says it is now installing fibre lines in the city centre and surrounding neighbourhoods, making it the first Belgian operator to bring fibre-optic services to existing homes. The first connections will be activated later this year. Proximus unveiled its ten-year EUR3 billion (USD3.4 billion) ‘Fibre for Belgium’ programme in December 2016, with a view to increasing the country’s FTTH coverage.
