Bits and Pieces

January 24, 2011

The TCA has over 370 agent members now. Certification is underway. Are you becoming a Certified Telecom Professional?  

STS Telecom and Saturn Telecommunications became part of Deltacom today, which is now EarthLink Business, according to an FCC filing.

I recently interviewed Mike Bolognini, vice president of Cox Business and Hospitality Network in Las Vegas, about the planned rollout of Hosted PBX in Southern Nevada. Below are Mr. Bolognini's responses.

What Does That List Mean?

January 12, 2011

There are always lists. Everybody comes up with Top 10, Top 5, Best of, blah, blah, blah. What does the list actually mean though?

2 More Acquisitions

Rumor from SFGate is it that Skype bought Qik for $100 million. Qik's smartphone video streaming service has grown to 5 million users. That doesn't mean revenue though - and Skype should know, right? Only 6% of its 124 million users contribute to the bottom line.

Did EarthLink Goof on Branding?

December 14, 2010

Yesterday when I was speaking to a client, I mentioned that new Edge Networks merged with Deltacom to become EarthLink Business. The confused look on his face was not unexpected. Again this morning when discussing the new name, EarthLink is linked to consumer dial-up in the marketplace. How does that translate into a B2B Brand?

3 New Acquisitions

December 14, 2010

PAETEC subsidiary Paetec Software Corporation, bought Formula Telecom Solutions Inc. for $13 million in cash, according to this release. PAETEC is just buying the billing platform it has used for over ten years. Makes sense. And $13M for a BSS system is nothing.
