Timico has announced a new enhanced pricing structure for its VoIP For Business service that effectively makes its QoS enabled broadband free. This move, according to the company, makes Timico the first dedicated provider of business strength VoIP to deliver free broadband to its UK small and medium-sized business customers.
“UK SMEs know that VoIP is not just about low cost calls over the internet. A robust internet connection is just the starting point to accessing a whole world of communications functionality that used to be the preserve of big business. Our VoIP with inclusive free broadband will guarantee our customers receive a business quality service ensuring that voice will always be prioritised over data. Effectively this means that voice quality will not be affected when large amounts of data are received or transmitted during a voice call,” says Matthew Gimlette, Commercial Director, Timico.
While other VoIP services are purely voice-play and focus on low cost calls, all users of the Timico VoIP For Business service are provided with impressive functionality such as voice and video conferencing together with Presence, Instant Messaging and a variety of collaboration and routing tools.
“We are the only commercially available UK provider of a managed VoIP service utilising the Nortel Multimedia Communications Server (MCS) 5200 platform. Our service functionality and quality is easily a cut above the rest due to the extremely feature-rich SIP-based multimedia communications service the platform provides, and the quality ensures that businesses will not experience poor quality voice calls associated with some other VoIP products,” continues Gimlette.
Following its purchase in 2004 and ongoing investment in specialist b2b ISP, Atlas Internet, Timico boasts one of the most advanced core networks in the UK. Because it has control over the underlying infrastructure, Timico is able to offer reliable throughput for low bandwidth applications giving services such as voice, video and collaboration sessions priority over its network. This level of quality is critical in collaborative business environments where a consistently high quality end user experience must be guaranteed.
“The Timico VoIP For Business USPs are its multimedia and PC client features, and our ability to guarantee quality of service. Our pricing structure offers excellent value for money with significant savings and increased functionality over traditional telecoms costs. By incorporating free broadband, customers are getting real value for money for a true business-strength VoIP service and they will benefit from having their converged communications services – mobile, fixed, internet and VoIP – on one, unified bill, enabling the easy capture and management of communication costs,” concludes Matthew Gimlette.
