Top 10 Reasons ShopforT1 is Your Answer to Broadband
#DateFormat(Now(),"mmmm d, yyyy")# - Have you noticed that shopping for T1 line prices
is not easy?
You perform a search in your favorite search engine and you see millions of pages, all
of which claim to save you money. In reality what your are seeing are a bunch of
internet marketing entrepreneurs (at best) who know little about dedicated service at all.
They create simple HTML forms that look like they have been programmed by a seventh grade student which captures your
billing information, and either sends it to every vendor on the planet or worse, to some
in-house former used-car salesman who will sell you whatever will pay HIM the biggest bonus.
The internet is littered with this garbage, confusing customers and leaving a sour taste in your
collective mouth. What started out as a search for competitively priced dedicated services
has turned into a circus!
In 2002 my partner, Adam Edwards, and I decided to take the road less traveled. We
realized early on that in order to create an online experience that was worthy of your
time, we needed to provide information you can use - not your typical "enter your
information here and we'll get back to you" elementary page. In order to do this, we
invested a full year researching all of the different t1 providers in order to understand
their pricing models, many of which were created long before we were born.
Based on information we extracted from this research, we invested heavily in complex programming
that would allow us to calculate loop prices, or the cost that the local phone companies pass on to the
dedicated service providers for access to their network. This cost varies by mile,
by market, and by geographic region of the country. Once we rolled up our sleeves
and performed extensive testing, we called our product 'GeoQuote' and released it to the
public on this very web site in 2003. We are currently in the process of patenting this
Once we began generating large amounts of volume for our suppliers, we were blessed
with special rate plans and promotions that we alone could offer you, our customer.
Our rates are especially low in large metropolitan areas of the United States, including
In this year alone, over 259,000 unbiased real-time quotes have been created
by online shoppers just like you. Instead of waiting for days to even see pricing,
we give it to you in just seconds. Throw in the courtesy phone call that you will
receive from one of our certified broadband consultants who can answer your questions,
help you design your network, give you the strengths and weaknesses of each of our
providers - and you have a winning combination.
Don't be fooled by the large number of imitators! Ever since the real-time price technology
was opened to the public two years ago, many have attempted to copy our business model, our
interface, and even our domain name (geoquote.com for example)! It's amazing how in-style
real-time shopping has become, especially considering that the reaction
we received by our vendors when we divulged our plans to create GeoQuote. Some of the
reactions we received include "that can't be done - it's never been done before" and
"that is an interesting business model". Now these same vendors have become
believers, and our very best partners.
Change has been embraced. Thousands of lines have been sold. The way people shop
for broadband services will never be the same.
As we go forward, our goal is to continually improve our product, our site, our
knowledge of the industry and products, and most of all, to build a bond with you -
our customer - that will last for years to come. Earning your trust is what we do here.
Saving you money is how we keep it.
