As always, the summer has passed quite fast and kept us busy in the midst of many summer vacations.
Starting off September, it is quit fit to do a recap and re-announcement what is going on.
On 1-st of June our partner Apollo TV launched as new ISP in Estonia with 1Gbit/s internet services. But that is not all. They also coupled the internet service offering with Plume HomePass services and Plume Superpods as hardware!
3KGroup overview page about Plume HomePass can be found HERE.
The dreams of great agility and speed of entering the market with new digital internet services by an ISP in almost no time is a reality in our region. This is possible with turnkey Cloud based tools by Plume and local support from 3KGroup.
As seen by Apollo TV example - it is doable in real life. Enter the market not only internet service provider, but also Wi-Fi and other value-added services provider that leverages a powerful Cloud platform. This enables to offer a distinctive value proposition that solves real problems on the market.
Maybe you are not listening to your customers or asking them about it attentively enough? It cannot be denied that Wi-Fi quality for one is a huge problem for ISPs that reflects in higher OPEX and churn rates. We see it day to day as ISP customers turn to 3KGroup as known Wi-Fi experts for help. It is probably not a surprise that people mainly experience their internet quality through Wi-Fi connected devices. It may come as surprise that the solution is not just next Wi-Fi technology.
The long term solution for consumers and small businesses is Plume. It will allow an ISP to deploy new services at scale in less than a month. Basically, you could start to grow and retain your broadband customers base better already now. No need to do develop your own systems for months and recruit lots of technical staff just to get some new services out.
With Plume home and small office networks are managed in a smart and automated way.
Mitigate the risk of overburdening your tech support with service related issues. Problems are usually common with deploying new services that don't fit the needs. Difference is how many will you get and can you do anything about them? With Plume there is full visibility and control of a Software as a Service, tailored to ISPs and customers needs.
All-in-all, this is of course much healthier economically than just coming out with more aggressive internet service pricing. Deploying hardware centric systems with lowest possible CAPEX is not a long term solution.
Let's be honest, generally speaking there is still an elephant in the middle of the room. The commodization of internet has happened and the broadband prices are all time low since there is no added value. Thus it is common to see campaigns offering broadband internet to new customers 6 months for FREE etc. We offer a way to step out of this "normality" into a better reality. You should consider it if you are looking for an easily evoked seismic shift for the better.
