Meme of the Week!

Buying telecom SUCKS!

Buying telecom services can be a headache, even for companies with dedicated IT staff. There are so many options out there that it’s hard to figure out which one is right for you.

Most of the time when people need to buy telecom services they either do their own research or ask someone who knows something about it (i.e., an IT person), but neither approach is ideal because either way you end up spending hours poring over service catalogs and trying to make sense of them all, and then once you have a shortlist of potential vendors you still have to negotiate pricing before choosing one.

Find out what you need to know about telecom agents, the benefits/drawbacks, components of the "agent ecosystem", why they exist in the first place, and what a telecom agent is (and how they work) in Lightyear's blog post.
