Finding the Right T1 Provider
Telecommunications agreements can be much like a marriage and as we all know there are good and bad marriages. The fact is, when you enter into a telecommunications contract with a T1 provider for an acceptable amount of bandwidth or voice service, you will have to enter into a long term contract. Telecommunications contracts for T1's and T3's usually range from 1 years to 3 years. Anything longer than a 3 year contract is usually only seen for very large applications like OC3 and OC12 or complex frame relay connections with many nodes. While the term of the contract will not be a problem if you have the right provider, the contract could prove very burdensome with the wrong provider.
We recommend using a broker to help you through your options and show you the providers and services available in Pocahontas. A broker or independent agent can help reduce the time it takes you to shop around for a T1 provider by asking you the questions once and searching through multiple providers to acquire the service that is right for you. The agent helps avoid the bias you will receive when speaking with one vendor as the agent will be paid regardless which service you choose. As the agent doesn't work with a specific provider like AT&T or Sprint, he or she will not push you in that direction if they are not right for you.
Keep in mind that the T1 provider you decide on will be your partner for quite some time so take caution in your decision. The worst thing with being with a bad provider is the fact that it will affect your business. Dropped calls or an Internet connection that goes down can be devastating to a business. We discovered that the 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 recover from the damages of the lost calls and e-mails from the poor service. When shopping for a T1 provider we advise using a broker and asking for referrals from current customers to give you a clue of what you can expect.
