Warning to business owners about service providers!
Be very careful when ordering or negotiating services such as Internet and voice lines with your local providers. Many of the providers now offer a "hosted" phone system. This means your current system would be replaced with a VOIP phone system that is in the cloud and managed by your provider. Their sales reps have actively told clients that they MUST switch to the hosted system to utilize their dial tone provided. THIS IS A COMPLETE AND BOLD LIE! You can still use your current system or a system purchased from a vendor such as Total Comm. Unfortunately they are using strong arm tactics and taking advantage of uneducated consumers. So before you sign anything at all we ask that you call us for a free evaluation. Hosted is not for everyone. Once you sign the contract you are "married" to the provider and there is no way out!
