Wi-Manx Seeks Full Telecoms Licence on the Isle of Man

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014 (5:04 pm) - Score 719

The Isle of Man, which is a British Crown dependency located in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland, has traditionally been dominated for broadband and phone services by Manx Telecom and Sure. But smaller rival Wi-Manx is now aiming to compete at a bigger level by applying to become a full service telecoms communications provider.

The Douglas-based business is already classified as an Internet Service Provider (ISP), but it sees the application for a full telecoms licence as part of a wider effector to grab a bigger chunk of the local market and to become the “only 100% Manx-owned full service telecoms provider“.

A new range of fixed line voice services and next generation corporate solutions, such as IP Telephony and SIP Trunking, are expected to follow.

Joe Hughes, Managing Director of Wi-Manx, said:

This is a very exciting time for the business, and for the Isle of Man, should the license amendment be approved. The positive implications for consumers and businesses will be endless.

Aiming to deliver customer-centric solutions, this new era will open up the local market and allow for more competition in the telecoms arena. We’ve evolved a great deal over the last ten years, so our expansion to a full service telco which will serve the Island is a natural progression for us.

The approval of the license will give us the freedom to develop our product portfolio and further invest in our own IPv6 enabled network rather than relying on existing infrastructure, allowing us to improve service to Islanders for years to come.”

More information on the license application can be found on the Wi-Manx website here: http://www.wimanx.com/buymanx . A consultation on the application is expected to surface in the very near future.
