COMindico says that, by simultaneously carrying voice, data and multimedia across a single network, it ensures optimal bandwidth use and substantial economies of scale. It also makes claims to be actively bridging the "digital divide", arguing that its wholesale network makes it economic for a wide variety of so-called "last mile" providers to deliver services to homes and business in regional areas.
The COMindico wholesale network provides services to four broad groups of "last mile" providers across Australia:
- New telephony carriers and resellers.
- Regional communities.
- Content developers and service providers.
- Internet service providers (ISPs).
The company claims that in providing the means to totally outsource communications solutions, COMindico can allow its customers to get far closer to its client base. For example, it says they can reach a large client base for products they sell online by offering the Internet connectivity services normally available only from dedicated Internet service providers, including access ports, bandwidth and links to the worldwide group, together with e-mail and newsgroups. This enables customers to sell all the services you'd normally associate with an Internet service provider.
The argument is that outsourcing the delivery of these services lets clients grow without making sizeable infrastructure investment.
The advantage extends to being able to offer a reliable telephone service featuring a flat timed rate right across the country, international calls at rates substantially lower than most leading carriers, and a suite of messaging products allowing customers to send and receive e-mails, faxes and phone calls.
Headquartered in Sydney, the company claims to have attracted an exceptional cast of leading industry professionals for its management team and currently employs more than 100 talented personnel.
