1. Description of the challenge

For the past 6 years, KPN has proudly held the title of having the most reliable network in the Netherlands, boasting an impressive score of 976/1000. However, this achievement is not sufficient for them; they aspire to reach the pinnacle with a perfect score of 1000/1000.

In an era where the internet has become an indispensable part of our lives, playing a crucial role in areas such as innovative healthcare applications and your own educational interactions, its infrastructure remains both indispensable and vulnerable.

Your expertise is sought to propel KPN towards a future where their network achieves the ultimate goal of 100% reliability.
