Mellenia Telecom, LLC and VoX Communications, Inc., a packet communications services company providing residential and business VoIP telephone service, are announcing a master agent and wholesale agreement.
VoX Communications is a wholly owned subsidiary of eLEC Communications Corp.
As part of the agreement, Mellenia will offer its current and future agents the opportunity to become authorized VoX agents so they can sell VoX VoIP services, disperse VoX Internet Access Devices, and activate new customer accounts via the VoX Web Portal.
In addition, the agreement allows Mellenia to sell VoX VoIP wholesale services, including IP Origination and Termination, to other VoIP providers, such as IXCs, CLECs, ISPs, cable operators, wireless providers, and others.
Mellenia's master agent program supports more than 2,500 qualified agents nationwide with services.
Mellenia Telecom's Founder and President Dr. Anas A Khalaf said his company has set a target of 40,000 subscribers using VoX VoIP within the next 6 months, saying he was relying on VoX's "feature-rich" broadband telephone service, with more than 20 call features, voicemail and enhanced call services to "easily sell itself."
VoX is having a fairly successful summer already, as a couple days ago TRACI.net, a provider of business VoIP services located in Deerfield Beech, Fla., signed a contract with them to obtain VoIP services for its broadband customers on a private-label basis.
They're doing well in Florida, as earlier in the week American Cable Services, an independent cable operator located in Ocala, Fla. signed a contract for VoIP services for its broadband customers on a private-label basis.
ACS is contracted for 150,000 homes in Florida, many of which have "mandatory phone" under their Home Owners Association, and VoX will be the underlying VoIP carrier for those homes.
VoX President Mark Richards said the company's "made a strategic decision to become the preferred VoIP solution for cable operators nationwide," since "independent cable operators represent a sizeable and meaningful portion of this market, most of whom are weighing plans for a VoIP offering."
Hopefully their success will help eLEC, which announced net losses of eight cents a share recently. Although quarterly revenues increased for the eighth consecutive quarter, amounting to $4,815,376 for the second quarter of fiscal 2005, an increase of $2,919,444, or 154 percent, over revenues of $1,895,932 in the second quarter of fiscal 2004, eLEC reported a net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 of ($1,341,047), or ($0.08) per share, as compared to net income of $808,464 or $0.05 per share, for the second quarter of fiscal 2004.
In comparison to the first quarter of fiscal 2005, second quarter revenues increased by $951,897, or 25 percent.
The loss from operations for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 amounted to ($1,193,722) as compared to ($28,060) in the second quarter of fiscal 2004.
