DataCo’s Value Proposition
DataCo will provide affordable high speed wholesale transmission capacity to retail ICT service providers.
DataCo’s core business will be focussed on three (3) core market segments:
1. PNG Fixed/Broadband Operators
DataCo will service the needs of fixed voice and broadband service providers based on the proposition that they will benefit from purchasing domestic and international transmission services from DataCo. This would enable Telikom to re-direct capital to other parts of its network, the access network (“last mile”) that connect directly to retail customers and front line services which would enable Telikom to differentiate itself in the market.
DataCo will provide Internet Service Providers (ISPs) with customised service offerings including “pay as you grow” constructs to stimulate demand and de-risk market entry for new ISPs.
2. PNG Mobile Network Operators (MNOs)
DataCo proposes to provide cost effective, reliable and scalable transmission services from major PNG centres to their Mobile Switching Centres (MSCs) and International Gateways. DataCo with its suite of wholesale transmission services around the country can maximise their respective return on investment cases and lower the cost of expanding their network coverage as well as meeting the increased demand for backhaul transmission capacity required when they deploy new 3G and 4G mobile technologies.
3. International Carriers
DataCo will offer connectivity to international Carrier’s such as Southern Cross Cable Network and provide seamless international and domestic capacity at bundled prices that will serve to stimulate competition in the local and international markets.
