Proximus launches 5G in Belgium with initial coverage in more than 30 communes across the country.
The launch is accompanied by the creation of ‘Mobilus 5G Unlimited’, the first real unlimited bundle in the Belgian market at €49.99 per month, along with enterprise and wholesale offers, as well as the commercialization of the OPPO Find X2 pro, the very first 5G-enabled device on any Belgian network.
Proximus has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Flemish public broadcaster VRT to test 5G applications in the media sector. Within the framework of this cooperation, both partners will examine how 5G technology can transform the production of live broadcasts at events based on concrete applications.
To operate like a “digital native” company, Proximus aims at becoming a legacy-free operator in terms of IT by 2025.This will go hand in hand with a comprehensive skills transformation that will make Proximus a reference employer for digital talents in Belgium. Proximus will get back to profitable growth by 2022, through its network leadership, strategic partnerships and the creation of local ecosystems.
Proximus will further grow its customer base to surpass 2.1 million internet lines for the consumer segment by 2022, thanks to its ambitious plans for fiber and 5G.
Proximus is committed to building the best Gigabit network for Belgium, through strong acceleration of fiber and 5G rollout. The company has accelerated significantly its Fiber roll-out program, aiming at connecting 800,000 supplementary homes by 2025, and even 1 million by 2026, compared to the initial plan. Proximus aims at connecting 2.4 million homes to fiber by 2025, instead of 2030. The Proximus Fiber network becomes Giga fast with the launch of a 1Gbps fiber option at 15€/month.
