Makedonski Telekom is the first company within the Deutsche Telekom Group with a network fully based on IP. The modernization of the network started in October 2011 and within 25 months, all 290,000 lines were migrated onto the new platform. Now services such as Broadband on Demand are on offer, allowing customers to book online high-speed internet access whenever they need it, with just one click. Deutsche Telekom invested EUR 13 million in the process. According to Claudia Nemat, board member at Deutsche Telekom for Europe & Technology, the objective is, by the end of 2018, to have all customers across Europe migrated to IP. Towards the end of 2014, Slovakia will be the next market, followed by Croatia and Montenegro in 2015 and then Hungary. By 2018 Romania, Greece and finally Germany are expected to have migrated too.
