Does you monthly service bill induce all-day migraines?

Yes? Well, why are you putting up with that? You certainly don't have to anymore. The pain that comes with being boxed in by monopolistic service providers is best relieved by having lots and lots of choices for voice and data communications services. How would you like access to 30, count 'em, thirty business grade carriers offering everything from telephone trunk lines to wireless and satellite broadband access?
