I realise that most of you reading this blog think that life at an ISP is exciting. We seem to only do fun things you say? Pigeon versus broadband racing, major industry parties at the London Transport Museum to celebrate the end of the IPv4 address space, Charity world record attempts, 4G testing on double decker busses in London, cake baking competitions, Christmas parties, offsite seminars in 5 star country houses etc etc etc.
You would of course be completely right. What you don’t necessarily see is all the nitty gritty hard work that goes on back stage that keeps the show on the road.
Winning and growing business is hard work that is made easier by having great business partners. At Timico we are lucky to not only have some fantastic partners but also the facilities they need to help them be successful. Last year we doubled the size of our marketing team to ten people and with the investment in the Newark data centre we have products and a showcase Network Operations Centre that makes it easy for partners to sell our services to their customers.
Like most ISPs I’m sure we are always on the hunt for more resellers and I recently gave a talk (I like talking) at the launch of our new MSP (Manage Service Provider) Partner Programme. We even had an existing partner fly over from Belfast to support this event and provide a testimonial – check out Steven Goldblatt’s Leaf.
If you are a managed IT provider or IT VAR looking for a blue chip provider of Private Wide Area Networks and Cloud solutions1 then look no further. Timico is the ISP for you. You can check us out at www.timico.co.uk/msp .
We’ll also be at the CRN Partner Connect Exhibition on 17th May 2012. If you’re attending visit us on stand N1 or alternatively pre-book a meeting slot.

1 I don’t like to use the hackneyed phrase “Cloud solutions” but the rest of the market hasn’t caught up with me yet so on occasions I have to go against my principles and this Advertorial is one.
