WhatsApp:
+ Huge benefit for users (Large cost-saving in comparison to SMS!)
+ Very easy to use
+ Focus on customer needs

Telnic:
- Expensive (Not cheaper than any other TLD!)
- No easy upload of pictures and videos
- Unrepresentative design

Telnames:
- Even more expensive
- No visible benefits for customers (Very hard to attract .tel website visitors!)
- Small provider among plenty of competitors
