Proximus sees opportunity to grow Mobile Vikings in Wallonia

Monday 25 January 2021 | 13:42 CET | News
Belgian operator Proximus hopes to expand the MVNOs Mobile Vikings and Jim Mobile in Wallonia, building on their popularity in Flanders, CEO Guillaume Boutin said in an interview with Belga. The operator agreed in December to buy the MVNOs from DPG Media. The takeover is expected to strengthen Proximus's market position in the north of the country, where it has lagged Telenet, while also providing an opportunity for growth in the south.
