THUS To Support Tele2's UK Dialup

Posted: 25th Oct, 2004 By: MarkJ
Not to be confused with the long gone broadband wireless (Tele2) service, operator THUS Group has been chosen by Tele2 to support the providers new UK Internet dialup service:

THUS plc today announced it has signed a contract with Tele2, one of Europe's leading telecommunications companies, to provide the systems to support Tele2's new dial-up Internet service for residential customers, the company's entry into the UK Internet market.

Using THUS's dial-up platform and modem technology as the backbone of its Internet solution, Tele2 can expand its service in the future and set-up costs will be reduced without affecting the end user experience. By keeping costs and administrative demands of the service low, Tele2 will be able to replicate its successful telephony business model, passing on cost savings to its customers.

Tele2 launched its UK telephony service in October 2003, offering one of the UK's lowest call tariffs, and has seen considerable market success as an aggressive competitor to BT for the residential market. Tele2 already uses THUS's advanced national fibre optic network for its domestic voice traffic and is now extending the relationship to include provision of the infrastructure for Tele2's new dial-up Internet service.

THUS's network will allow Tele2 to minimise administration for the new Internet service by removing the need for each customer to be issued with a login and password. Tele2 customers will automatically be able to access the Internet using their home phone number as identification. This is possible because THUS's network can attribute an IP address upon connection, and authenticate that the home phone number supplied as a login is the number from which the machine has dialled out, providing added security for Tele2's customers.

Bill Butler, Managing Director of Tele2, commented, "We have experienced THUS's cost effective service and innovative approach to its customers' needs first hand over the last 18 months and we are confident that THUS is the best provider to support our first steps into the UK ISP market. This is an important development for Tele2 as offering a package of value communications services, both Internet and phone, with a single monthly bill is a very compelling proposition for our customers. We have seen great success with this business model across Europe."

"Tele2 has brought much needed competition to the UK's residential telephony sector and THUS has been pleased to support the company in its challenge to BT," commented Phil Male, Chief Operating Officer, THUS plc. "Tele2's move into Internet service provision using the same low cost model is a natural progression for the company and will bring more choice to the UK's home Internet users."
