Signature of a 3-year extendable master agreement covering 60,000 homes passed per year

Fiberklaar, a fiber network company that was founded in 2021 by EQT Infrastructure and Proximus to design, build and maintain a Fiber-to-the-Home (“FTTH”) network that is open and accessible to all operators in Flanders, has selected Solutions 30 as one of its key partners.

Over the next seven years, Fiberklaar has the ambition to connect 1.5 million houses to ultra-high speed Internet and to build 300,000 connections in the coming two years. In its process to select the long-term partners that will help build the largest broadband network in Flanders, Fiberklaar has selected Solutions 30 and has entrusted the Company with passing up to 60,000 homes per year. Both companies have signed a master agreement that will be effective starting on 21 September 2021.

Commenting on this agreement, Rik Missault, CEO of Fiberklaar said "We are very pleased to call Solutions 30 one of our key partners in our ambitious plan to build an open fibre network in Flanders. This long-term cooperation with an experienced company is vital for us to provide the inhabitants of Flanders with super-fast and stable internet. Solutions 30 has already started preparations for the roll out in Lokeren, and other towns will follow."

Luc Brusselaers, Chief Revenue Officer of Solutions 30, stated: “We would like to thank Fiberklaar for their trust. Over the past five years, Solutions 30 has developed great expertise in deploying fiber optics, especially in France, Poland and in Spain, which will help us support fast ramp-up in the FTTH deployments in Flanders. We are very proud to be part of such a large project and are fully committed in sustaining its success, while creating value and jobs opportunities in the country. This new contract for Solutions 30 in Belgium proves our ability to accelerate growth when we reach the critical size in a region and shows our continued commitment to the digital communications market, that is booming all across Europe.”
