Aggressive Sales efforts on the domestic hosting business to boost the bottom lines , as the objective is to put the existing blade servers to optimal utilization. With a productive and efficient management of both ISP business & Domestic hosting , the Company is targeting a bottom line of Rs.2.00 Crores by the end of March 2017.

Standalone

In the ISP segment , There is immense competition in both the twin states of Telangana State & AP State .

On one hand , Home grown and dominant localized State level A & B category ISPs are fighting for larger market shares with bigger brand presence & reach. On the other side, National TELCOs are also directly marketing all their Voice, Data & Video service offerings in the same markets. Margins are shrinking with incremental fixed costs. Fall in Internet Bandwith buying prices is getting negated with higher demand from end consumers from the point of view of both quality & quantity of bandwidth, which poses a challenge in optimizing usage of Internet bandwidth. State Govts on both sides are exploring the possibility of providing Free Wi-Fi in select Cities & principal towns. This may add to the existing fierce competition. Additionally , Reliance Jio Communications is expected to play havoc in the market with their aggressive combo offerings and marketing campaigns. Against the above backdrop, Nettlinx has strategically positioned itself in a niche market segment comprising of larger reliance on SMEs, Educational Institutions & Business Broadband than relying on third party Cable Operators network as opposed to only the home broadband segment & whole sale bandwidth by most others. Under these circumstances, Nettlinx will be able to overcome competition and scale over all the hurdles and achieve the desired and budgeted financial numbers.
