Why Use a Telecom Broker When Shopping For a Voice / Data T1 connection?

We find the right service provider for you, assess your requirements with the providerís capabilities, and negotiate the lowest price possible.

(PRWEB) September 15, 2005 -- Finding DS1, DS3 or Business DSL service in your area can be a challenge. If you don't know the providers you would likely start with your local phone company and probably get a horrible deal.

When searching for a service it's important to know which providers have POP's (Point of Presence) in your area but for some reason service providers don't like to reveal this information.

If a DS1 - T1 line is in your near future, take the guesswork out of your search and contact a broker. Brokers are able to contact numerous providers in the time it would take you to have a conversation with one or two providers that may not even offer service in your area. Want a line for under $500? Let your broker know this and he or she will know to point you only in the direction of such companies that offer a service at this price.

We recommend the use of brokers in the search for service and we also recommend using a broker to sign up for your service. As ECS Telecom's Founding Director, Bob Horan, puts it "Many people believe they can beat the system by contacting a broker to get pricing and other information as quickly as possible and will then go straight to the carrier believing they can get better service. This "end-run" process is actually a good way to cut yourself out of some of the biggest advantages of having a broker."

Advantages

1. - The advantage of ordering through a broker is that you will get a second channel of customer service and current information on promotions and price breaks. If the company is not performing to expectation you will always be able to go back to your broker who puts a significant volume through the carrier. A broker is much more likely to get the companies attention and have your problem solved.

2. - Brokers don't mark up the price of services. They offer the same or better rates than you would get if you did go direct to the company. Often, you will be quoted a higher rate.

With that vision, ECS Telecom / Low T1 Rates decided to offer a system that carried no bias towards one particular carrier AND gave immediate pricing feedback! Instant service confirmation and real-time price quotes.

What ECS Telecom is offering is a real time quote tool. There is no waiting to find pricing. Customers simply enter their information on the Low T1 Rates website - http://www.lowt1rates.com - and compare T1, DS3 and Business xDSL pricing immediately. OCx, point to point, VPN circuits can also be priced rapidly by calling their offices at 866-777-9166.

"Real time pricing will do for telecommunications shopping what Lending Tree did for banking, let the carriers compete!" states Mr. Horan. "We believe our customers time should not be wasted searching and waiting for T1 and DS3 price quote information. Comparing features and costs has never been easier in the telecommunications industry."
