Technological innovation creates value
In Tiscali, business and management decisions are always made with the future in mind. By continuously developing and implementing advanced technologies, Tiscali creates value for its customers. Through its IP and VoIP network, Tiscali is able to supply a wide range of very high quality services, such as DSL packages, voice over IP products and advanced business services such as Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that make communications between a company’s different locations more efficient and secure.
A strong brand
Over the last few years, the Group recognition has channeled its efforts and resources into raising the awareness of the Tiscali brand. The strong brand with a reputation for value coupled with a significant customer base - both in dial- up and ADSL segments - are key assets for the Company.
Tiscali challenges monopolies
The Group’s success is also based on its battle against ex-monopolies with dominant market position. In fact, Tiscali was the first operator to launch free internet access in Italy following the liberalization of the telecoms market in 1998, and since 2002 it has been involved in a pan-European campaign against the de facto monopoly in the broadband market.
The new technology will expand the internet’s potential for content exchange and enhance its role in facilitating any number of everyday tasks.
Tiscali stands out in the sector as a company that has consistently striven for a level playing field in the telecommunication market, with the conviction that freedom of communication is a fundamental objective, which once achieved, must be protected and maintained.
Tiscali will face many challenges in the future
We identify two of the most important as:
The “internal” challenge
To expand and upgrade its network delivering state of the art broadband services to its customers, capitalizing on the ongoing advances in technology and facilitating the convergence of all telecommunications services, so as to offer the group’s customers a constant stream of new opportunities for growth, cultural exchange and knowledge.
The “external” challenge
Tiscali actively contributed to the process of drafting the new regulations, boosting the broadband market and providing a competitive environment for all operators. In this way, we have moved towards the objective of making communication services open to every alternative providers, thus delivering real value to all customers.
