Timico is to launch a faster broadband product available for the indirect channel to resell later this quarter.
The ‘Fibre Broadband’ product uses a fibre optic network, which provides a much faster service. Commission will be on a revenue share basis dependant on the margins the sale makes. It is a bespoke product, enabling dealers to tailor the deal to the end user’s requirements.
Fibre Broadband is an extension of Timico’s existing broadband range, which includes its fast-growing Ethernet in the First Mile (EFM) product.
Timico head of the indirect channel Iain Sinnott said the product has been successful due to affordability and efficiency. EFM runs on a copper-based Ethernet service, capable of carrying high bandwidth connections of up to 10Mbps.
Sinnott said: “We are ramping up the broadband activity and have seen strong growth with EFM. EFM is excellent, however it is not available across the whole country as the quality of service depends on the distance to the cabinet. The launch of new Fibre Broadband, fibre-to-the-cabinet product is expected to sell even better and we’ve had a good response from the channel so far.”
Meanwhile, Timico is hosting two training days which are open to all its channel partners at its head office in Newark. The training will be held on April 13 and 14 and for those unable to travel, a virtual meeting will be hosted online with four training modules.
Training will focus on the IP products as well as Research In Motion’s latest BlackBerry BES Express solution for SME customers.
