Initiated in 2013, the successive transformation of the Group’s infrastructure will lead to a centrally controlled IP network throughout Europe by 2018. DT Group will invest more than EUR 6 billion in Europe-wide network expansion through 2018. Think globally, act locally is the motto. There is a central portfolio framework from which our national companies are able to generate individual offers tuned to the respective region. Remember, when a distinct production site was needed in every country for every service? A thing of the past. Following Croatia, Hungary and Slovakia, seven additional countries will be connected to the pan-European network step by step over the coming years. For CEE region this means: the future belongs to standardized products on a consistent platform – for example to the Deutsche Telekom Cloud VPN.
