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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
