  • Year 1: $10
  • Year 2: $8
  • Year 3: $6.5
  • Year 4: $5.5
  • Year 5: $5.25

Reality bites but it's still all to play for, collapse of the real world is coming and you'll find plenty of one man/woman traders emerging, as it will be a necessity to trade services beyond the reach of the banking oligarchy, .tel will fit in very well with this need if it can expand it's services to those people and provide a virtual currency or integrate bitcoin wallets as after all if you can store a string uuid in a txt note on the domain why cant we store bitcoins? because that's all they are a string of data.
..
But people expect something more like that so if they don't continue to add things people wont see any value in it, and the easiest value increaser is money related.
..
So perhaps doing a deal with a pre-paid card provider to turn bitcoins we store in our .tel into host nation currency so we can have a bitcoin .tel debit card that runs on both depending on what the seller accepts as currency would finally gain peoples interest.

Here the complete Five Year Financial Projections from before the launch of .tel (with a lot of interesting benchmark data):

Their projections were based upon the interest that people showed in the idea of a great, self-managed .tel listed in an exclusive, live, popular global directory.

Too bad all they've ever delivered was a bad proxy, in an even worse directory.

Don't be too surprised if the numbers keep going down, as every month this year, except Telnames of course.

Add a real directory to a real proxy page, they could eventually recover locally.

We used this comparison in the past:

Google existed and then Bing came onto the scene claiming to be a competitor - they are.

Yellow Pages, etc. existed and then Telnic came onto the scene claiming to be a competitor - nothing but talk, and the laughing stock of the industry so far.

If I tell you I am going to compete with Mercedes and show up in a Trabant, you do the math !

Hey telrific, meanwhile you've added another picture! Funny, it's a similar model as mine!
I guess most people recognize quality products easily!

Wow, Telnic really thought they can sell 20 million .tel domains with almost none software development! That's unbelievable!
And they still cling to this thought, because there are still no signs of development!
I think it's still possible for .tel to come out of the cover, but Telnic really has to start developing their product.
The only question is: are they willing to do this? Right now it doesn't seem so!
Conclusion: The success will wait until a new CEO is willing to provide a product the market demands. The old CEO has shown for more than 3 years he is not willing to invest any effort!
(The staff at Telnic can't be blamed for the current situation, because they can't be more proactive if they are not allowed to do so!)
This is just typical management misconduct!

Wise words! Nothing more to say: Turn .tel into a great product and people will start buying it! Shouldn't be so difficult if the developers do more than now = nothing! Until then continue sleeping or do other things !

I agree that developing .tel is the most important topic of all.
.tel domains would be a widespread success without much marketing as soon they would be recognized as something valuable.
But after more than 3 years they still look so dull and the community had to fight for the smallest improvements (like implementing videos). And Telnic refuses all suggestions for real innovations.
The same applies for TelFriends and TelPages.

My hope is Telnic will see the need for integration of advanced features as soon registration numbers decline close to 100.000 .tel domains. Certainly we don't have to wait long for that anymore. I expect this to happen latest in the year 2014.
As soon Telnic starts developing .tel extensively, I still see great potential for it!
And one day this has to be understood in London, too!

That or promoting name phone numbers with massive marketing!

Surely Telnic won't cover the financial investment of such big amount required for it.

Only a strong and experienced partner would carry this out. Since such involvement is not in sight, we really have to learn to be patient.

As I always write on this forum .tel is a great and unique technology!

But everybody should arrange the involvement in .tel in a manner that we all can't expect a fast progress - due to the circumstances mentioned by several forum members!

I know it is kind of depressing, but in the last years we have learnt our influence is too small to speed things up!

Total Year End .Tel Domains projected by Telnic to ICANN in their proposal for securing the .tel extension

Year 1: 1,090,000 - Actual March 2010 = 261,344 = 24.0%
Year 2: 2,715,000 - Actual March 2011 = 333,891 = 12.3%
Year 3: 5,942,500 - Actual March 2012 = 299,195 = 5.0%
Year 4: 11,451,875
Year 5: 19,898,906

With Total .Tel Domains registered just 5% (and falling) of projections made by Telnic to ICANN to secure this TLD, is it possible a competitor could claim that Telnic's licence to hold the .Tel extension should be revoked ?

Who know the mistery, why this CEO is not fired out yet?
