Central Telecom choose On-Communications as UK WiMAX FWA Partner

Central Telecom, twice winner of the Avaya EMEA Business Partner of the Year and On-Communications, the UK WiMAX FWA network operator, have announced that they are joining forces to sell WiMAX FWA services via Central Telecom’s CT-Networks Division.

Neil Boxer Central’s Hosted Services Development Manager said,” Central has seen the provision of Internet connectivity become an essential business requirement. This is because UK telecoms operators have been merging at a rapid rate and/or have vacated the Mid Market business space, which has lead to an increasing reliance on services originating from BT Openreach”.

“Central has always been innovative in its service delivery and by adding On-Communications WiMAX FWA to our portfolio we will be able to differentiate our data solutions from a connectivity perspective”.

“The market has been crying out for a new Internet and data access offering in the space between copper/DSL ‘best efforts’ services and big fibre. On-Communications’ independent WiMAX FWA network bridges that gap wonderfully; fulfilling a real market need”.

Geoff Scott, Channel Manager at On-Communications added, “Central is held in high regard by the business community (evidenced by the number of awards they have won) and they were very high up on our list of desired wholesale partners.

“Our new WiMAX network is a great platform, not just filling the copper/fibre gap, but optimised to support next generation IP services such as VoIP, hosting applications and virtual private networks (VPNs). We are looking forward to working with Central and CT-Networks to create new value propositions for their customers.”
