Optical fiber is like a highway, but without the inconvenience of traffic jams. Companies that are connected to optical fiber see their productivity rise thanks to the application possibilities of ultra-fast connections: business-critical applications, homeworking, cloud applications, etc. , says Bart Van Den Meersche, Chief Enterprise Market Officer of Proximus.
An important part in Proximus's strategy to restore growth by the end of 2016 consists of strengthening its presence in the SME segment. That is why Proximus is putting every effort into the Proximus ICT Expert network, the reinforcement of its own local IT integrator Belgacom Bridging ICT and the recently acquired cloud partner ClearMedia.
Belgacom and telent Technology Services Limited have signed an agreement for the divestment of the activities ofTelindus Limited, the UK subsidiary of Telindus. In 2013 the company contributed €62m in revenues to the EBU segment with limited EBITDA impact.
Belgacom is recognized as world leader for corporate action on climate change. For its actions to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the business risks of climate change, Belgacom has been awarded with a position on The CDP Climate Performance Leadership Index 2014.
The progress made in the underlying revenue trends as well as some structural cost reduction through simplification give further confidence in our ‘Fit for Growth’-strategy and brings us another step closer to our underlying EBITDA growth objective in 2016. Dominique Leroy
