Renting the network: better connected or false economy?27/06/2014

In a Computer Weekly article, TNP Director Chris Wade discusses the benefits of owning a wide area network rather than renting.

Chris explains the reasoning behind TNP’s unique asset ownership approach : “Leasing lines for a telecoms network can represent a false economy, especially for those such as councils with unique requirements and many end users. After an initial contract, typically spanning three to five years, those councils that are leasing lines will either have to extend the contract (and not benefit from new technology or commercial deals) or tender for a new network partner, which can mean heavy installation fees or migration costs. This ‘replace or renew’ model offers no flexibility or long-term sustainability.”
