Kitamura are proud to announce we are now an Authorized Reseller for Tiscali Internet. This means we can now sell Tiscali’s broadband and phone packages to our customers at discounted prices. This can only be a good thing, because we can now support the customer through all stages of package setup, from purchase to installation. Previously, when we set up a customer’s internet package, we could not help with issues such as activation, or payment issues, only the actual modem and software setup and installation. If the package is purchased through our Tiscali IBA page, we can contact Tiscali directly, and get a quicker response for you.

Pleae note, this only applies to our Tiscali services, the setups of other companies services are still only covered for setup. We are working on becoming resellers for Virgin Media (formerly NTL), Telewest, TalkTalk, BlueYonder, and Orange Broadband.

Tiscali are in the process of striking a deal with Pipex for the acquisition of Pipex’s broadband and phone division. See the next article above for details.
