Ultra-Fast Broadband - New Opportunities

If you have or are considering taking advantage of the new fibre-based, ultrafast broadband network there are a number of complimentary services that you can consider to further leverage the technology.

BlueBerry recommend that you talk with the team at Fibrephone, a local Top of the South Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) provider, about how their solutions can add capability to your phone systems while reducing costs typically associated with fixed line providers.

By adopting a VoIP solution over the new fibre connection, your business can potentially remove fixed line charges from your bottom-line!

To find out more talk with BlueBerry or visit the Fibrephone website

Product Warranty

Recently we have had a number of queries about what is and isn't covered by manufacturer warranties.
Typical warranty terms cover the cost of replacement parts and the labour to install that part(s).
What is not covered by any of the manufacturer warranties is the initial time to diagnose the fault.
Other areas not covered by standard warranties are wear and tear, drops and spills or any other form of accidental damage. Depending on the technology involved there are options to enhance standard warranties - for example, HP offer an Accidental Damage Protection (ADP) plan on certain laptops and tablets in the product range. This covers things such as drops and spills.
If you are unsure of what warranty applies to any of the products and services supplied by BlueBerry then don't hesitate to ask one of the team. 


HP Pro X2
