Local web services company, Infuse Internet, will begin hosting the websites and email services of 400 Wave Telecom and Newtel customers from August.
Infuse Internet, which was established by entrepreneur Tom Hacquoil, provides web development, web design and web hosting, and will be offering its new customers a safe, cost effective and reliable service.
‘From 15th August the websites of 400 current customers of Wave Telecom and Newtel, around 700-800 websites, will be ‘novated’ across to the Infuse Internet service. All current contracts will be honoured and there are no changes to terms and conditions. Customers will continue to benefit from a 24/7 call centre and need take no action – as the transfer will be seamless,’ said Tom Hacquoil, managing director, Infuse Internet.
Ross Allan, Head of Business Solution for Wave Telecom said: ‘We have decided to transfer this business to Infuse because they are a specialist hosting business, with ambitious plans for the future in terms of the products and services they will be able to offer our clients. We are also delighted to have the opportunity to support an up and coming local entrepreneur like Tom Hacquoil, and fully endorse his drive to expand the Islands’ IT sectors. We are satisfied that Infuse Internet will offer our customers value for money and be able to continue to deliver an excellent level of service and support.’
Mr Hacquoil set up Infuse Internet in a bid to ‘bring a little of Silicon Valley to the Channel Islands’. He recognised that the Channel Islands has a shortage of talented specialists in the web services sector and is passionate about creating an education programme that will get youngsters engaged with and involved in the industry. Through the application of a 10-year plan, Mr Hacquoil hopes to revolutionise the sector, establishing the Channel Islands as a centre of excellence for web services, including design, development and hosting.
In 2008 Mr Hacquoil set up his first business, Motoze Hosting, providing web hosting services to people looking to setup small personal websites. It is a fully automated business, to which customers signup online and their packages are automatically configured for them. This business is still in operation and will sit alongside Infuse Internet, a web organisation that offers a more personal service.
‘Infuse Internet will look to support businesses of all sizes, from SOHO’s to SME and corporate clients. We will be offering niche services, using a pool of talented individuals and organisations,’ concluded Mr Hacquoil.
