Scranton, PA (PRWEB) January 8, 2006
Telecommunications contracts can be much like a marriage and as we all know there are good and bad marriages. The fact is, when a business owner or manmager enters into a telecommunications contract with a T1 provider for a reasonalble amount of bandwidth or voice service it is typically a long term contract. Telecommunications contracts for T1's and T3's typically range from 1 years to 3 years. Anything longer than a 3 year contract is usually only seen in very large applicatons like OC3 and OC12 or complex frame relay connections with many nodes. While the term of the contract will not be a problem if a company has the right provider, the contract could prove extrememly burdomsome with the wrong provider.
A new breed of online executives are using the tools at newly launched http://www.amtecdigital.com to show the various options, providers and services available in a their local area. These tools can help reduce the time it takes users to shop around for a T1 provider. Simply fill in the easy to use form and the tool searches through multiple providers to get the service that best suits a particular businesses needs. The site helps users steer clear of the bias often received when speaking with one vendor, as they will be paid no matter which service you choose. Since these sites don't work with a specific provider like AT&T or Sprint, they will not push a prospective buyer in that direction if the plan is not right for their application.
Remeber that the T1 provider a company selects will be their partner for quite some time so great caution should be taken before making a final decision. The worst part of being with a bad provider is the fact that it will affect business. Dropped calls or an internet connection that goes down can be disastrous to a business. Often larger companies like AT&T and Sprint will release companies from long term contracts it if is shown that the voice or data T1 service was faulty on a regular basis. However, the release from such a contract will not help recoup the damages of the lost calls and e-mails from the poor service.
With more and more companies turining to the internet, it pays to research before buying. With the simple tools found at http://www.amtecdigital.com, shopping for broadband is now as easy as booking a hotel room or a vacation.
