DRAPER, Utah, June 24, 2010 – Telarus, Inc., premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, today announced a new partnership between Telarus and Airband Communications, one the nation’s leading fixed-wireless providers.
“Airband has been a leader in fixed-wireless technology since the day they opened their doors back in 2000,” commented Lance Akins, VP of Sales for Telarus. “The idea to bypass last mile loops and deliver superior support, installation, and pricing is an ingenious model. It’s no wonder that Airband has been so successful over the past few years.”
Airband currently serves business customers across 14 markets and is expanding its footprint in Atlanta; Austin, Texas; Baltimore; Dallas; Fort Lauderdale; Fort Worth; Houston; Los Angeles; Miami; Orange County, Calif.; Philadelphia; Phoenix; San Antonio and San Diego.
“We are very excited about our new partnership with Telarus” added Jim DaBramo, Executive Vice President of sales and operations at Airband. “Telarus has become one of the top Master agencies in the country because of the innovative ways they support their agents with carrier selection and online quoting tools. We look forward to providing Telarus’ agents with a great alternative to traditional telecom services.”
“Airband will soon be integrated into Telarus’ patented carrier quoting tool known as GeoQuote. GeoQuote will enable Airband and Telarus employees to address the needs of Telarus agents more effectively by not having to spend a bulk of their time quoting transactional items. Agents will be able to instantly know when and where Airband services are available, saving them the trouble of having to memorize footprints and product matrixes.”

In fact, Airband’s products are so reliable that Airband has recently come out with a VoIP product with a strong quality of service agreement.”
