areas of specialty.
Many of IKANO’s largest retail brands were acquired – including DSL Extreme, ISP.com (part of Dialup USA), Auracom/Interhop (Canada), Amerion and Ohio Hills. SISNA was IKANO’s predecessor entity and the original flagship brand. Other retail brands, were successfully home grown on a virtual basis by IKANO. DSL Extreme is the Company’s largest retail brand, with a combination of consumer and business DSL subscribers.
IKANO has approximately 1,000+ wholesale customers.
The Company’s typical wholesale customer is a smaller, regional dialup ISP wishing to leverage IKANO’s lower cost, aggregated telco network. IKANO’s wholesale end user count has grown since the Dialup USA acquisition.
The private label segment is IKANO’s “original” business, providing branded dialup
access, related IP services and branded billing and call center support to partners
and their end users. IKANO provides private label services for a large satellite
provider. Future growth is also expected from the upcoming launch of private
label DSL services.
Private label contracts are typically multi-year agreements, with auto-renewal annually or month-to-month thereafter.
