So back in July, a client asked me to migrate 14 POTS lines from one location to a new office as well as take them back from a CLEC. The CLEC was a rebiller (non-facilities based) and kind of messed...

The Mobile Ecosystem Battle

Just finished recording a webinar for COMDEX-Virtual on Mobility + The Cloud = Convergence in Telecom. Khali Henderson, Editor-in-Chief of Phone+ magazine was on the panel with me. I shared this article her because it was relevant. Now I want...

If training on contracting and ordering ABN services takes more than 90 minutes (it's just over 90 minutes and still going now), how long will it take an Agent to actually get pricing, contract, and order the circuit? Is the...

Debt and Finances

I'll readily admit that I am not a financial wizard. I am risk adverse and think that playing the stock market is like a casino (the deck is stacked against you). Then I read The Big Short by Michael Lewis...

This country has some major issues not the least of which the media gets bogged done in buzz marketing. Why else would there be a week's worth of "news" about LeBron leaving Cleveland for Miami. A week! That's almost more...

The Numbers Don't Add Up

When Net Neutrality folks say we need competition, I laugh. Never gonna happen. Why? Competition that is just too big and powerful (for now).When Agents cry about the ILEC Channel programs, I shake my head because it has been about...

AT&T terminated the CallVantage service in November. Not only was porting the number out of CallVantage a challenge, but they continue to send me a bill for a service that they terminated! I can't log in because the phone number...

Cellular companies have some of the lamest ad campaigns. Apparently, the marketing folks AND their ad agencies are SO far removed from the consumers that they don't even know what message to spend millions on.What difference does a coverage map...

Battle of the Bells

Whitacre Running GM

Former SBC chief Ed Whitacre is going to be the next Chairman of GM. Huh? According to Bloomberg, Whitacre is doing his patriotic duty and loves the challenge. Rich Tehrani thinks that Whitacre was a strategist. He dismantled the regulatory...

How does this work? "AT&T Inc said Friday it will buy the bulk of Alltel Wireless assets being divested by Verizon Communications Inc for $2.35 billion, and will sell some Centennial Communications Corp assets to Verizon Wireless for $240 million."...

Who Do Rumors Benefit?

I was told that when you hear rumors about a merger, it's just bankers raising a balloon to see about interest. It's there way of testing the waters so they can "earn" some money with a little M&A action.  (You...

ACC Business is a subsidiary of AT&T. It uses the AT&T network to provide voice, data and Internet services to small and medium business via agents only. ACC Biz does not have a direct sales force. Tech support and billing...
