Waterloo, Luxembourg, July 7th, 2022 – Unifiber, a joint venture created in July 2021 by Eurofiber and Proximus to roll out a fibre optic network in Wallonia, has selected Solutions 30 to support its goal of giving high-speed internet access to more than 600,000 Walloon households by 2028.
Unifiber’s mission is to accelerate the deployment of optical fibre in Wallonia by building a network open to all telecommunications service providers.
To support the deployment of this network of the future, Unifiber has selected Solutions 30 as one of its strategic partners. Solutions 30 has extensive expertise in the rollout of high-speed Internet networks, gained since 2014 across Europe, particularly in France and Spain, where more than 70% of the territory has now been connected to fibre optics. Solutions 30 has been awarded the contract to connect 200,000 Walloon households. The first deployments have already started in Saint Ghislain.
Commenting on the partnership, Nico Weymaere, CEO of Unifiber, said: “Unifiber has set an ambitious objective in network deployment that will contribute to turning Wallonia into a Giga Region, as outlined by the Walloon Government in its Regional Policy Statement. To successfully deliver our projects, we have chosen to partner with companies that have demonstrated extensive experience in the deployment of FTTH networks. We are delighted to include the Solutions 30 team amongst our key partners.”
Luc Brusselaers, Chief Revenue Officer of Solutions 30, added: “We are extremely proud to support this ambitious project for Wallonia and would like to extend our thanks to Unifiber and its teams for their confidence. Our expertise in fibre optics, from network deployment activities to subscriber connection and maintenance, will allow us to provide efficient support for the rapid ramp-up of the projects in Wallonia. These are especially exciting and inclusive projects as they create value for our territories and generate significant employment opportunities. This new contract in Belgium is a demonstration of Solutions 30’s dynamic markets and underlines our ongoing commitment to digital transformation in Europe.”
