Brazilian Bonanza for Venus Resellers

Brian Iddon

This week sees the World Cup in Brazil get underway and Venus Business Communications is helping resellers capitalise on the sales opportunities as hundreds of thousands of people settle down to watch the nation’s favourite game. Venus’ Brazilian Bonanza reseller package is designed to help resellers make great margins from the Venus Dark Fibre Network during the FIFA World Cup as businesses from hotels to pubs and clubs attract customers with live streaming of the event. The Brazilian Bonanza includes fixed pricing designed to give resellers peace of mind and the confidence to close orders rapidly when offering Venus Ethernet Leased Lines to their clients.

As England begins their quest to bring home the World Cup many of the matches begin at 5:00 pm, so people at work are likely to be either heading for bars and clubs or more likely streaming live play on their tablets. When any major sporting event begins Venus experiences increased interest demand from businesses connected to their dark fibre network. “Our network utilisation peaks as businesses see both customers and employees streaming events and needing large bandwidth with uninterrupted streaming to provide a quality viewing” says Brian Iddon, Venus Business Communications Director. “It’s not only hotels and clubs, but also a range of businesses engendering good will from their employees by providing opportunities to break from work to watch nationally important matches,” continues Brian.

Venus is keen for resellers to capitalise on the opportunities to sell to new businesses and offer upgrades to their current businesses who would value an un-contended network offering speeds up to 10 Gigabits per second. Their Brazilian Bonanza includes fixed price guarantees, so resellers can base their prices on the quote Venus has given without having to worry about Excess Construction Costs (ECC’s). In addition, resellers will benefit from a 30% discount on any London Gigabit circuits ordered during the World Cup from the moment England walks onto the pitch. The Brazilian Bonanza also includes fast-track connection for customers in any Venus on-net connected buildings, so businesses have the best viewing experience for the important forth-coming England games. In the group stage, after taking on Italy, England play Uruguay on the 19th June in Sao Paulo and then Costa Rica on the 24th June in Brazil. Success at group stage then sees them through to further matches on either the 28th or 29th June. “Many of these matches are at 5:00pm, so there will be some key periods for an hour and a half where demand for bandwidth will be very high. We expect to see this increase as England progresses further through the tournament,” says Brian.

Venus is encouraging resellers to contact them to discuss the Brazil Bonanza with them, together with helpful advice on the profitable customer bases that can benefit from a fibre optic connection when the whistle blows. Venus believes that the FIFA World Cup offers resellers a great opportunity to broaden its client base and is looking forward to supporting them all the way to the final.
