Tiscali has announced a long-term strategic partnership with telecoms provider, 186K. The partnership means Tiscali will provide wholesale dial-up and broadband internet services to the 186K networks.
186K say they decided to partner with Tiscali because of its track record and ability to provide wholesale broadband services. Tiscali’s wholesale Local Loop Unbundling (LLU) offer will enable 186K to offer its customers a wide range of broadband services, including ADSL-based speeds of up to 8Mbps and ADSL2+ services of up to 24Mbps.
“Tiscali has an excellent proven track record in supplying broadband technology,” said Roger Walker, chief operating officer of 186K Limited. “The decision to partner with them will allow us to provide wholesale broadband technology, according to a defined LLU strategy, which is capable of supporting triple play services for our rapidly growing client base.”
The service will allow 186K to offer its customers DSL services across multiple platforms. This is a considerable market advantage, enabling 186K to differentiate itself in a highly competitive market.
Tiscali’s new LLU service integrates its automated interface for the service provider as well as offering capacity based charging mechanisms which allows providers to control the services they offer to their customers.
“We are pleased that 186K has chosen us as their official UK wholesale broadband supplier and look forward to making a significant difference to their bottom line.” says Nathan Francis, managing director, Tiscali Business Services.
