Proximus announced its first Fiber-to-the-Home wholesale agreement with edpnet a year ago and has since added another 13 such partnership. 

Thanks to the flexible access (Ethernet VPN, bitstream or carrier services) to Proximus' open fiber network, these national and international operators can offer their own services to both residential and business customers.

This fits in with "Fiber for Belgium", a €3 billion investment plan to accelerate the roll-out of the fiber network. With this plan, Proximus makes a significant contribution to the Belgian economy. Indeed, fiber is the fixed network of the future, making it possible to anticipate the growing capacity needs of all players, given the exponential growth of data traffic and digital services.

In just one year, 14 independent telecom providers have already opted for Proximus' commercial fiber offer. This shows that wholesale customers see fiber as the fastest and most efficient way of offering new products and services to their customers, says Proximus.

Jeroen Degadr, Director Carrier & Wholesale (CWS), Proximus
We didn't wait for a regulated model to offer fiber to as many businesses and citizens in Belgium as possible. From the outset, we opened our network to respond to the changing needs of our wholesale customers, and to give other companies a chance to develop their own innovative services.
