…we have been extremely pleased with the working relationship, the quality of the services provided and their willingness to accommodate us to meet our needs and expectations… The engineering and consulting services that were provided was a major factor in the success of our fiber to the premise projects completed throughout all of our exchanges, as well as the current project initiated with the awarded stimulus funds.
