MetTel, an integrated communications provider specializing in the business market, has launched an expansion program that will enable it to provide service in 30 states from coast to coast by the end of the first quarter 2005.
MetTel began the program in January, and thus far has introduced service in Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont and the communities of Byram and Greenwich, Conn. The company is scheduled to begin serving California, Delaware, Georgia, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia by the end of May.
MetTel offers customers a variety of local, long-distance, advanced business and Internet services and has recently introduced an online billing system for business customers.
The company, founded in 1996, and headquartered in New York City, had been serving customers in Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania prior to the expansion.
"MetTel adds a new dimension to the marketplace," says Jeff Swider, president of Vision Telecom in Providence. "It combines outstanding service with very competitive pricing to offer customers great value. It provides great support to its agent team — and to its customers."
"We believe that there are significant opportunities as the economy rebounds and we are poised to take advantage of them," says Bill Patchett, MetTel’s vice president of agent sales.
MetTel’s support systems enable agents to track orders and commissions online at any time.
