SkyNetGlobal partners with Engin to boost wireless take-up

SkyNetGlobal hopes the lure of VoIP will double the take-up of its home wireless service.

In an OEM partnership with Engin, the wireless broadband provider's residential service, W Home, will offer Engin's VoIP box in its suite of products which include lifestyle, security and entertainment devices.

In addition to increasing W Home take-up rates, SkyNetGlobal CEO, Jonathon Soon, said the partnership would increase revenue per customer, because his company would receive a commission on all calls originating from W Home customers.

Engin's 'voice box' allows broadband calls to be made by plugging directly into an existing telephone handset without the need for a computer or any software. Soon said an easy to use VoIP product would be attractive to customers because they would no longer have to pay rental fees for a fixed line, as they only needed a broadband connection.

"Most people in our demographic have mobiles anyway, so they would be happy to not have to pay extra for a fixed telephone line," he said.

W Home provides broadband communications and associated products to customers in more than 120 apartment buildings in selected areas of Sydney and Melbourne, and the network is constantly expanding.

Soon said the W Home network would continue to grow, as would its associated list of wireless broadband products and channel partners.

"We will be announcing several new products in the next few months," he said.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
