Our Voice On VoIP

Sometimes a thousand words are better than an image.

Pictures cannot encompass the finesse of our ideas, but words can paint concepts in beautiful colours.


A day at the office

Why?

Why?

You might believe that in a business sector so hyper-technological like ours, every day something amazing happens. Well, I’m sorry to shatter your dreams of glory and awe, but most of my day is filled with a basic daily grind, like many other office jobs.

The truth is that I rarely have the time to be social: either write here in this blog, post a few tweets, update our status on Facebook or even just get started with Google+.

Another price hike from the Big Boys

Every penny counts nowadays: reap the savings with Scottish Broadband Telecom

We are sure you heard all about the gas & power companies’ recent price rises from the news, but one price increase that is going almost unnoticed comes from the telecom sector.

Our systems ban instantly (less than 1 second) the IP where the attempt comes from, making any further attempt fruitless, and the data gathered by the attackers in this small amount of time almost meaningless and totally useless.
