Hugh Logan, the former MD of Your Communications, has launched a new ISP offering SMEs a competitively priced unlimited ‘up to’ 8Mbps broadband package. The product is powered by Tiscali UK and includes a suite of free business critical software, such as Sage’s TAS Books 2, Ability Office 2007and Panda AV/AS.
There’s also a guaranteed service level agreement (SLA) and full UK-based customer support team. The price starts at £54.99 per month:
“The proposition behind Jungle247’s brand is basically about providing a whole new way for businesses to buy their broadband while getting access to software that will undoubtedly help them to grow,” said Hugh Logan, Jungle247’s Chairman.
“Never before has an offering come to the market saying, ‘get your broadband here and then get thousands of pounds of leading business software with no upfront cost’. That, as far as I can see, is what people really want…broadband with content!”
Aside from the previously mentioned Sage accountancy software that is included with Jungle247.com, the company has also joined forces with Formjet plc, a leading software developer specialising in the field of office and Internet security applications.
Boasting a unique alliance, Jungle247.com’s joint venture with Formjet plc will see both parties sign a reseller agreement to provide mutually beneficial sales channels; Jungle247.com to take full distribution management of Formjet’s high street retail offerings and to co-market (with full technical support) the innovative ‘Office in a Box’ solution, which will be available across the UK in a wide range of business supply outlets.
It may be worth pointing out that Jungle247’s relationship with Tiscali is probably at the wholesale level, thus the residential problems that Tiscali users often experience shouldn’t be applicable to Jungle. It’s understood that the new ISP will also be looking to introduce a residential service sometime later this year.
