Christian Nellemann, Group CEO of XLN Telecom, commented:
“Our online activity represents an important weapon in our marketing arsenal, it helping us reach high-value segments of the small business marketplace – in particular service based businesses which typically have far greater broadband, voice and mobile requirements than the retail sector. We anticipate continuing to expand and innovate our online marketing – all of which is done in-house – in the coming year.”
