owner where data can be stored and quickly updated on any device connected to
the internet, including mobile. It can be as simple as an online business card

.tel community harness the power of dynamic data being stored in a .tel domain
and use them for more complex solutions such as listing weather reports and
city events ( or a comprehensive public interactive service
directory (
