With the start of the New Year, Frontier is also ratcheting up its operations as a reseller of BT Wholesale Calls services with bulk purchase of minutes from BT, using BT’s network to transport calls. This means there is no least cost routing or carrier pre select required, as the calls do not leave the BT network at the local exchange level.
Looking ahead to 2009, Peter Southgate, Frontier’s acting Managing Director, is in typically bullish mood. “Having developed strategic alliances with the likes of BT, we go into 2009 offering a stronger proposition to all our existing and potential channel partners. As freedom of choice is paramount in attracting new customers for our dealers, we have built up a formidable portfolio of network providers and services, which I believe offer the greatest flexibility and the most competitive rates available to the channel.”
