Expanding from our roots as a telecoms provider, Voice solutions and mobile services are still central to our overall offering – but the developments in our network have allowed us to develop a portfolio of business grade connectivity and hosted solutions that have moved us away from being a pure telecoms provider and firmly into the IT arena.
Access to our voice and data networks brings our customers the cost benefits of converged solutions. Our business grade connectivity network has allowed us to deliver market leading solutions including a range of Hosted and data centre options which cater for the rising demand for opex services.
