Telnic claim to have a global directory. Do they mean Telpages with those bad results?

Definitely Online Yellow Pages.

Google is a spotty joke, just a step up from Telpages.

Others, there are none that are as comprehensive and trustworthy.

Too bad that Telnic didn't get it done using a REAL directory.

Without it there are no reasons to have a .tel ultimately.

ANYONE can get a free template and use their real tld to do what .tel is doing.

contact.google.com can easily created to be a .tel style contact page viewable on any device ... and anyone can use their current domain name without buying a new domain.

The ONLY reasons to buy a .tel are twofold:

1. Someone has more dollars than sense, doesn't mind throwing money away at Telnic.
2. There is a real directory to get found in, like Yellow Pages.

Guess that pretty much sums up the entire .tel effort.

Everyone loved the idea based on 2. above.

Everyone left after 2 years of declining registrations is now 1. alone.

Sad.
