Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

CallNet 0800 has confirmed it will not be ditching its telephony-based net access model despite earlier reports claiming it may be "forced to change its entire business model".

A spokesman for the company said CallNet 0800 was assessing its business model on a "day-by-day" basis.

He said he couldn't rule out the introduction of a new product based on a soon-to-be-released wholesale Net access product (FRIACO), but added that if this was the case, it would not be the kiss of death for CallNet 0800's existing telephony-based ISP.

Instead, any new product would exist hand-in-hand with CallNet's other services, he said.

Earlier this week CallNet confirmed it had suspended registrations for the service in a bid to improve the network's sluggish service and performance. Other network capacity improvements would take "weeks rather than days", it said. ®
