Review Your Telecom Contract Annually to Improve Bottom Line

Everyone is trying to cut expenses these days in order to remain competitive.  One of the easiest ways to save money is to revisit your telecom expenses.  These voice and data services are usually provided by a carrier such as AT&T, CBeyond, Paetec, WindStream (formerly Nuvox) or one of the other half dozen or so providers.  The cost of these services, especially data, continues to drop year after year as the major carriers increase their bandwidth in order to stay competitive.  Most contracts are 2 or 3 year deals, which provide customers with the biggest savings.

Often times these contracts will auto-renew and lock in a company with the same rates.  As frustrating as that is, it illustrates why it’s important to examine your telecom contract each year and plan well ahead of time to meet with your existing carrier and shop the price in the market.  You can often get a much better price by changing carriers.  Voice and data are a commodity but service counts, too, so make sure you do your homework before making a switch.  Network 1 can help navigate the process and be an advocate for you during the renewal.
