Telenet at full speed ahead in the Henegouwen region

Telenet received the green light to take over SFR on 13 June 2017. And from day one, we've been very hard at work in the so-called 'boot of Hainaut' to bring our network and our services there to the same level as our (high) Telenet standard.

Project leader Etienne Verlinden explains that the upgrade takes place at three levels: the improvement of the repair and maintenance services, improved support from the helpdesk, and a substantial upgrade of the existing coaxial cable infrastructure.  "More than 25 people are currently working on this, and we expect to finish the work by this summer".

Watch the video below to see how we are tackling this important project for Telenet.
