Brussels, Belgium, 1-4-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — On 1 April, following a positive test period involving 4,500 users, Belgacom is launching Belgacom Cloud. Thanks to this new service, customers have secure access to all their files from anywhere and they can save documents, synchronize them with their computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone and share them with family and friends. Internet customers receive 10 GB of storage space free of charge and pay €2.95 per month for 30 GB or €9.95 per month for 200 GB.
Share and store everywhere
Belgacom Cloud allows customers to store and share their favorite files with family and friends in a user-friendly and secure way. In case of loss of or damage to a device, the customer can still access his photos, videos, music and other documents. Belgacom Cloud enables you to:
- autosave your favorite documents
- access your files anytime, no matter where you are
- share documents via e-mail, Facebook or Twitter
- view videos and photos on a large screen on your own Belgacom TV system or while visiting family or friends
The “Belgacom Cloud” application is available for PCs, MACs, smartphones or tablets running Android, iOS or Windows Phone.
Security & privacy
To safeguard the privacy of Belgacom Cloud and therefore of the valuable, personal content of customers, Belgacom is working with Finnish company F-Secure, world leader in online data protection.
Customers who are already using existing Cloud services such as Dropbox, Picasa or Facebook will be able to integrate those in their Belgacom Cloud. What is unique – compared with other Cloud services – is that customers will also have access to the documents in their Belgacom Cloud via Belgacom TV. Not only will that be possible via their own Belgacom TV system but also via that of a family member or friend.
The access to the Belgacom Cloud is therefore another advantage on top of all the other advantages of the Belgacom Packs, which are: free calls to all fixed and mobile numbers in Belgium after 5 p.m. and on weekends; access to 700,000 Wi-Fi FON spots in Belgium and 12 million worldwide; free 3G and 4G mobile Internet to surf anytime, anywhere; possibility of using TV Everywhere, etc. And what’s more, Belgacom Pack customers can benefit from additional discounts on their Proximus subscription to enjoy the best mobile network to the full.
Customers can activate their Belgacom Cloud account easily via e-Services.
