NEW YORK, Jan. 21 /CNW/ - Telnic Limited (http://www.telnic.org), the
registry operator for the new .tel top level domain (TLD), today announced
that a significant number of telecommunications organizations were not only
registering their brands for .tel domains but were investigating the .tel as a
platform for added-value services themselves.
Numerous operators, including fixed-line, mobile or Voice over IP (VoIP)
companies, including Orange, Vodafone, Hutchison 3G, T-Mobile, Sprint, Virgin
Mobile and Skype, have all supported the new communications-focused .tel TLD
by securing their brands.
"We'd like to thank those telecommunications providers who've registered
their brands for understanding that .tel is not just another top level domain
but that instead it provides an innovative and neutral platform for service
interoperability," said Khashayar Mahdavi, CEO of Telnic Limited. "Several
operators, especially those concerned with VoIP, are moving to become
ICANN-accredited registrars in order to use this platform to deliver
value-added services to their customers."
Applications from trademark holders are still being taken during the
protected Sunrise period until February 2nd 2009, after which time anyone may
purchase any available .tel domain in a first come, first served manner. For
