Alternative Networks (ANL) has launched an ISP service targeted at rapidly growing businesses which are likely to want to change bandwidth to keep up with their expansion.
The business communications specialist has become an ISP by providing direct access to UUNET’s internet network. Subscribers can sign up to a tiered service, which offers a 2MB leased line, but pay only for the bandwidth used. When more capacity is required, extra bandwidth can be supplied within 48 hours.
Should an hour of connectivity be lost, one day of service is credited – which should make this service very much in demand.
“Fast-growing companies don’t want to have to worry about their comms strategy, they want to get on with growing their business. It’s essential they identify a service provider who will offer a reliable net connection at a reasonable cost,” said Chris Wilson, marketing director at ANL. “UUNET has the world’s most extensive IP network and a 100% availability guarantee. These were the primary reasons for choosing the company as a partner. Our customers will benefit greatly from its experience and infrastructure.”
“There are hundreds of ISPs, but there aren’t many that have the same skills and communications knowledge in-house as ANL,” said Mark Nixon, channel sales director at UUNET. “We only partner with companies that can prove they are the best in their own field and with its strong account management skills and support, Alternative Networks definitely passed the test.”
Founded in 1994, ANL supports companies in all areas of voice and data solutions, and is one of the largest independents in its sector. The company’s solutions and services are geared towards optimizing the efficiency, flexibility and stability of the corporate communications infrastructure. It also offers services from telephone systems and hardware to internet access and managed network services.
ANL helps to design and implement solutions ranging from the small office to the complex digital multi-site network. Its customers can access major UK networks at prices that aren’t available in the general marketplace. If requirements change or another carrier becomes more suitable, ANL can change the network without changing the customer’s billing structure or single point of contact. Customers include Cornhill Insurance, Sporting Index and Direct Wines.
