At the same time we have modernized our core network by continuing the roll out of our Simplified Backbone Optical network (SIMBA) increasing our core-network capacity by factor 10.

IT & process simplification The redesign of the IT architecture is accompanied by the redesign of the processes to improve First Time Right and maximize efficiency gains. For example, the new mass market IT systems have drastically simplified the selling & ordering systems at Proximus. We are also simplifying our billing systems with the migration of mass market customers to a single platform.
