Proximus to deploy FTTH in Knokke-Heist

17 Oct 2019

Belgian full-service telecoms operator Proximus has announced it will begin deploying fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband in the coastal municipality of Knokke-Heist in the coming weeks, as part of a plan to connect more than 30,000 new and existing homes and businesses in the town by 2023. ‘In the coming months, residents living in the Knokke-Heist city centre will be able to discover for themselves that fibre offers the ultimate broadband experience for surfing, streaming, gaming and working at the speed of light,’ notes Geert Standaert, Proximus’s Chief Technology Officer.

Proximus is already rolling out FTTH in eleven cities as part of its ten-year EUR3 billion (USD3.3 billion) ‘Fibre for Belgium’ programme unveiled in December 2016, which aims to connect more than 85% of businesses and more than 50% of households to the network.
