Is .TEL lost or does it only take longer to succeed?

Post by Tel on Thu 06 Sep 2012, 1:45 pm

In 2009 no involved party expected the following:
- .TEL registrations numbers don't get any momentum.
- Software development for .TEL has stopped completely.
- No marketing happens anymore.
- Only insiders know that the .TEL extension exists.
- Currently it's impossible to earn any money with .TEL for any party.
- Telnic shut down every communication and don't response to .TEL owners.

I'm wondering what we can expect during the next years:
- Will Telnic reactivate their presence?
- Will .TEL be continued on the current level without any significance?
- Will the remaining domain investors turn their back, too?
- Is Telnic planning to improve their product one day?
- Is there any chance .TEL will get out of the misery?

I don't dare to give any prognosis anymore! So I'm asking for advice.

This is my solution - http://www.teltalk.org/t402-i-m-dropping-a-lot-of-tels - reluctantly taken due to Telnic's actions (or rather lack of them) over the last couple of years !

Only Telnic can answer these questions, because everything depends on their willingness to start working seriously after years of inaction.
The following scenarios are possible:
UNLIKELY: Telnic opens its mind and starts the right measures to lead .tel to success.
POSSIBLE: A serious businessman takes over the development of Telnic’s strategy.
LIKELY: Telnic sticks to the adjustment to declining revenues and will concentrate on administration of a few thousands remaining .tel domains.

Perhaps we shouldn't worry so much. This option is kind of certain, because the increasing pressure (by shareholders or shrinking earnings) should lead to this in the future! I can't imagine Telnic will continue its current strategy when they realize it doesn't pay. They just don’t seem to be the fastest thinkers. At the end I believe even Telnic is planning to earn some money.

I wonder if there is a 4th possibility - that Telnic loses its licence to run the .tel extension and ICANN lets a more dynamic and pro-active organisation bid for it ?

See http://www.teltalk.org/t423p10-comparision-of-the-five-year-financial-projections-for-tel-before-after#1788 for figures showing the complete failure of Telnic to live up to anything approaching the projections given to ICANN when they secured the .tel licence.

It's only a longshot - but could it legally happen ?

Sure there are many more possibilities, but not this one.
What is ICANN's interest in registration numbers? They will earn enough money with the nTLDs in preparation anyway.
And ICANN won't withdraw the licenses for .name, .asia, .pro, travel, .coop, .edu., .aero and .xxx either.
My hope is a smart business will discover the specialty of .tel and will take over Telnic. It can be even Telnic is speculating for that!

I think Telnic shareholders would be delighted to allow this and recover some of the $35,000,000 investment they made.

Telnic's CEO (http://Kash.tel) and CFO (http://Fiona.tel) would have jobs to go to - since they are of course also the CEO and CFO of http://www.Telnames.com which sells the only version of .tel currently being marketed i.e. http://YourBusiness.tel

So I believe a sale of the Telnic .tel registry could easily happen - just need to find a buyer who has deep pockets and a dynamic approach to internet marketing !

Hmmmm....

The word "Useless" is not only disrespectful but shows NO regard for the tireless efforts that others put forth to provide a gateway for us to even comment.

As business owners, managers and CEO's like Kash... I would hope that in disappointment, business owners have networks that are established to ensure the prosperity and succession of each investors own future.

Deep Pockets -- Dynamic Approach....

This is up to us. Pockets were deep enough to make the investment. Now let's be Dynamic. If not, then our networks are should be there to sustain personal operations.

A bit, but a clear reason for disrespect was earned by Telnic worldwide.

That's where you are 100% wrong.

Nothing at Microsoft, Intel, HP, Google, Yellow Pages, Twitter, Facebook, Coca-Cola, McDonalds, etc. was "up to us" except as consumers, with or without feedback.

Get a clue already, it's 100% up to them, NOT us.

Chris...

I respectfully disagree with your perspective. We do have a say as business people. Our plans and strategies compliment/take advantage of technical platforms. Larger companies do have an advantage because they are proven (stories of success we do not know). .Tel is larger if we as business people continue to share knowledge and drive the platform (respectfully) so that all can thrive.

This is the future.

Thanks for your insight.
