BayCity hunting rural broadband partners

Satellite broadband wholesaler BayCity Communications will have the help of long-standing partner Farmside, and other resellers, as it takes its new Voice Link service to market.

The service provides subscribers with unlimited toll-free calling to national and international lines and a satellite broadband connection, with the company calling it an alternative to traditional broadband via landlines for all areas of New Zealand.

The wholesaler is negotiating with potential resellers to accompany Farmside, and is targeting “a number of rural and also telecommunications-based companies that are interested in extending services they currently can’t provide through New Zealand’s copper network”, says spokesperson Tim Trewinnard.

BayCity has no particular number of resellers in mind, being keen to work with anyone who has an interest in the service, Trewinnard says.

The Government’s review of the Telecommunications Service Obligations (TSO) regulatory framework – which will assess the case for changes to ensure basic telco services are affordable to residential users – may also make VoiceLink a competitive alternative to incumbent TSO provider Telecom in areas tagged as uneconomic, BayCity says.

BayCity offers a residential Voice Link service, which has a recommended retail price of $49.95, excludes GST, a month along with any existing satellite broadband plan charges, with free calling to local and national numbers as well as 40 international areas.

There is also a business plan that offers the same toll free calling package for $129.95, plus GST, a month.
