Represented Carriers in Wisconsin

If at anytime you are looking for service from one of these carriers or are unhappy with any of these carriers, please give me a call and I can assist you with new pricing, alternate options and contract negotiations.

Paetec Prices - ENDING!!!

Paetec is almost complete with the McLeod integration. One of the final tasks is to integrate the pricing and pricing applications. All currently quoted Paetec pricing from the McLeod Legacy network will expire 12-31-08 unless preapproved.

So please make sure all outstanding proposals are close by year end or get the requests to me ASAP for a pricing extension.

New Construction...

Did you know that the ILEC is no longer responsible for establishing a DMARC, running cable to the building from the pedistal and doing cross connects for clients. (Jan 05)

If you are working with a client that is constructing a new building, you/they will need to contact the ILEC to have a DMARC installed. That could run between $5,000 and $10,000.

But I have the solution...

After working with multiple vendors and clients in the past 8 years getting new buildings established with telecom and internet services, I have a proven process to get a building's DMARC established, fire alarm lines installed and a new billing telephone number at a very minimal charge...all at the same time.

Call me for more details and to help get your clients taken care of.

$120 Million in Cash

Although Paetec’s common stock price has declined significantly, they firmly believe that their financial position is solid, and they have an outstanding value proposition. Paetec has worked very hard for many years to achieve that position and they are positioned to continue to do so. In this kind of environment, there are a few points every customer should know. Specifically:
  • Paetec continues to have the cash needed to run the business and to continue to provide unmatched service to their customers. They have generated positive free cash flow, measured as adjusted EBITDA* less capital expenditures, for 22 consecutive quarters through the second quarter of fiscal 2008. Paetec is very focused on continuing this performance.
  • They have had no problem servicing their debt and meeting their other obligations from the cash that they generate and from cash on hand.
  • They have substantial cash on hand. They have more than $120 million of cash on hand after giving effect to their drawdown on October 15, 2008 of $50 million in cash under their existing revolving credit facility.
  • They refinanced their credit facility debt in February 2007, and sold all of their outstanding 9.5% senior notes in July 2007, in each case, on terms that they believe provide significant financial and operating flexibility. The term and revolving loans under their credit facility and the notes represent substantially all of their long-term debt, and they believe they are positioned to continue to service these obligations

“I have worked with JR on a number of occasions over the past 7 years. I am in the voice/data cabling business and often times my customers will ask for recommendations for phone/internet providers. I have referred several of these customers to JR and he has always taken very good care of them. JR works very hard to find the right solutions to fit a customer's needs and then follows through with the best possible pricing. I would recommend JR to any of my customers that are evaluating their current service or looking for new phone/internet service.”

“JR is a high-energy person who spends the time to get to know his clients, understand their individual needs, and then does everything in his power to come up with a product that meets those needs. My company worked with him to purchase Internet and Telephone products provided by One Communications. Even though phone companies tend to have challenges come up with service availability and delivering those services on-time, JR took the initiative to always check in to see if everything was going smoothly. If something was wrong, he would make it his personal mission to track down the individual who could fix it within the organization, and get something done despite the bureaucracy. For those reasons, I definitely recommend JR to anyone looking for an agent who will work for them.”

“I had the good fortune to work with JR during my tenure at Choice One Communications. As an indirect channel manager for the company, JR was at the top of the heap in terms of quota performance and respect from his peers and channel partners. He demonstrated an exceptional high degree of integrity, attention to detail and a genuine caring for creating "win/win" scenarios. "Making the numbers" was simply a by-product of his commitment to success. I am sure he will be an impact player for the remainder of his career. I would welcome the opportunity to work with him again. A real class act.”
