Poll: Are you providing VoIP as an alternative to traditional PBX?

Posted on Feb 10 2015 by Gemma Dickinson | Comments Off on Poll: Are you providing VoIP as an alternative to traditional PBX?
Categories : Polls, Reselling, VoIP

We have been discussing the merits of adding VoIP to your portfolio for quite some time now and whilst we continue to believe that the addition of VoIP could help resellers take advantage of valuable opportunities, we would like to hear your experiences and opinions.

That’s why we’ve added a new poll to find out how many of our readers are already providing VoIP and which of you are providing it as an alternative to traditional PBX solutions or in addition to. Let us know your feedback by participating in our poll and/or leaving us a comment below.

Poll: Does the UK need to re-evaluate its own data retention laws and should ISPs still be expected to retain and provide data to GCHQ etc?

Posted on Jul 08 2014 by Claire Dutton-Merrills | Comments Off on Poll: Does the UK need to re-evaluate its own data retention laws and should ISPs still be expected to retain and provide data to GCHQ etc?
Categories : Polls, Privacy, Regulation

Back in May we discussed the ECJ’s ruling that current EU laws regarding the retention of data were invalid and its potential effect on the UK. As pressure mounts from a number of privacy advocates including ORG, who are running an e-petition to stop ISPs retaining data, The Guardian reports that ministers are getting ready to pass emergency laws. The government will need cross party support to successfully get the new laws through quickly. According to this report government appears to have secured this but the Lib Dems are insisting the new laws will reinstate the existing powers and will not introduce the controversial ‘snoopers charter.

“The government does have to respond to the European court of justice ruling, which we are currently examining, and will respond in due course. But that is about the retention of existing powers rather than their extension.”

Poll: Should ISPs tackle copyright infringement and extremism by filtering content?

Posted on Jan 15 2014 by Claire Dutton-Merrills | Comments Off on Poll: Should ISPs tackle copyright infringement and extremism by filtering content?
Categories : Polls

In a recent article we talked about the UK government’s approach to ‘Extremist Content’ and copyright infringement, warning of its suggested approach to protecting “young minds” and the public. In practically no time at all it has become quite clear that the fears surrounding imposed filtering requirements have become reality, with highly valued websites designed for sexual education, rape victim support and much much more being unsuitably blocked.

Recently, news emerged that the National Audit Office will be investigating and publishing a report in July on whether the BDUK offers value for money.

The £530 million project was set up by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) in a bid to roll out ‘superfast broadband’ to 90 per cent of the UK premises with speeds of up to 24Mbps and for the remaining to receive at least 2Mbps. Its primary objective is for the UK to have the best superfast broadband network in Europe by 2015.

Poll: Do you think Ofcom’s plans to improve the ADR schemes will be successful?

Posted on Sep 19 2012 by Gemma Dickinson | Comments Off on Poll: Do you think Ofcom’s plans to improve the ADR schemes will be successful?
Categories : Ofcom, Polls, Regulation

In our recent article ‘Arbitrary Arbitration?’ we discussed Ofcom’s plans to improve the current ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) schemes for broadband and suggested Ofcom should provide more detailed guidelines to the ADR organisations to help them ensure consistency. We also suggested the implementation of a losing party pays approach rather than the current system which charges the ISP whether they win or lose the case.

We would like to know what our reseller partners think about the current ADR schemes and the proposed improvements from Ofcom, so we have added a new poll to collate your views. Alternatively, you can also leave a comment below.
