Deutsche Telekom has connected the first three of ten countries for its new European network – Croatia, Hungary and Slovakia.
The three countries will now be able to draw products from a standardized platform. The first product is a business customer service for virtual private networks called “Cloud VPN”.
Speaking at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday, DT CEO Timotheus Hoettges said the network would create greater independence for the continent.
“WIth our European network and the cross-border infrastructure, we will be able to set the tone and not just dance to the beat of drummers from the US and Asia,” DT CEO Timotheus Hoettges told the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona yesterday. “We are the first multinational telecommunications company to be able to truly make use of the synergies that arise when the national companies work together. This is our master plan for the digitization of Europe.”
Hoettges revealed that the operator plans to invest more than EUR 6 billion in the new network between now and 2018, with up to 100,000 connections migrated to IP technology each week.
