Nashua Mobile has partnered with converged telecommunications operator Neotel to offer a range of new voice and data solutions to consumers and business customers.
This partnership adds a new range of fixed-line and fixed-wireless solutions to Nashua Mobile's product and service range, adding the Neoflex voice packages for SMEs as well as a selection of Neotel's enterprise solutions.
Chris Scoble, MD of Nashua Mobile, comments: "We are excited to add the Neotel product range to our offering in line with our promise to give our customers a choice of the very best telecommunications services and products available in South Africa. We look forward to establishing a close working relationship with Neotel in the months to come."
Ajay Pandey, CEO and MD of Neotel, adds: "This partnership extends our reach in the market and offers subscribers an easy and convenient way of accessing our services. Nashua Mobile is an ideal partner for Neotel because it has extensive experience in the industry, an established retail channel and a good reputation for customer service."
For SME and consumer customers, Nashua Mobile will offer Neotel products and services such as NeoConnect, a home consumer portfolio of services, offering voice, data and SMS on one device; NeoFlex Voice; and NeoFlex Data. NeoFlex Data is Neotel’s multi-user wireless, high speed internet connection. This product is best suited for the home or small office environment.
The NeoFlex Voice service is based on a CDMA 1x device which connects to all new and most existing PBX systems, and can be used both for making and receiving calls.
Neotel's retail and SME products will initially be available through selected Nashua Mobile franchises and dealers and will then be rolled out to Nashua Mobile's larger outlets such as the new concept store at Gateway shopping centre in Durban.
For larger companies, Neotel offers a bouquet of services that provide multiplay capabilities. These multiplay Neotel services include public switched voice, data connectivity and internet access.
Neotel's consumer and SME services are based on CDMA2000 1xEvDO technology, which is a converged service platform, offering bundled Internet, SMS and carrier grade voice as a single service, all on one bill. The existing set of services is available in the major metropolitan areas of South Africa (Gauteng, Cape Town and Durban).
