Telecom company Proximus uses power poles to spread its fiber network in Wallonia. The telecommunications company has signed a new agreement for this purpose with electricity network operator Walon Ores, it announced on Monday.
The two companies have been working together since 2008, using poles to bring fiber to street tanks. This is now extended to the client connection.
This solution has already been tested in Namur and is particularly suitable for spreading fibers in less densely populated areas. “The agreement between Proximus and Ores will bring the benefits of fiber faster to homes and businesses in Wallonia, while reducing disruption to local residents, as demonstrated by a recently successful pilot project in Bog,” Proximus said in a press release on Monday.
The fiber allows for very fast browsing, live streaming and gaming and is therefore suitable for individuals and professionals alike. Proximus aims to provide 70 percent of Belgian homes and businesses with this technology by 2028. Its multi-gigabit network will also be open to other telecom operators.
Financial details of the deal with the Orcs are unknown.
