Rival Networks promises free Internet Featured

By

Gold Coast based IT company Rival Networks is planning to launch a free Internet access service via mobile broadband.

The company has given few details of the offer, but has set up a web page (www.rivalfree.com.au/free) where potential customers can register their interest ahead of the launch on 31 October.

It has also set up a Facebook page. However the Rival Networks' company Facebook page provides rather more information about the company. It was formed in 2010 to "to service small and medium sized businesses," and specialises in "bringing IT into businesses for an affordable price without sacrificing quality."

Rival Networks' head of PR and corporate communications, Glenn West, told iTWire. "We will be using participation incentives and reward programmes and some online marketing strategies to help subsidise the cost." He said that advertising would be "something we will be implementing on a small scale."

"Initially we will be doing a 3G rollout...via a dongle or portable WiFi hotspot. It turns out to be much more cost effective than DSL."

He said the company planned to use the Optus network but "We have deals in place with Telstra and Vodafone if we can't get the coverage."

The cost of providing Internet access over a mobile broadband network might seem to preclude offering a free service, but West said: "We found that 80 percent of Internet users use less than 1.5GB [per month]...There are a lot of people who use the Internet just for email and some web browsing and we will be targeting those initially."

He added that the company would, down the track, look at offering phone services. "We want to make communications free."

INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV

iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.

We work with you to develop the message and conduct the interview or product review in a safe and collaborative way. Unlike other Tech YouTube channels, we create a story around your message and post that on the homepage of ITWire, linking to your message.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.
