Frequently Asked Questions

Are we resellers of communication services?

No. We are knowledgeable consulting agents representing telecommunications service providers, and we have access to all the same products and services without the bias. Your actual telecom service, as well as billing, will be provided directly by the service provider you choose, but Data-Tel will remain as your advocate to assist with implementation, on-going support, and to act as a liaison between you and your service provider. If you call Data-Tel with a question or problem, you’ll speak to a real person- one of the members of your individual account team.

No. Our consulting services including savings analysis, quotes, and network design are absolutely FREE. In order to ensure your services make sense for the long term, we methodically review your costs to make sure you continue to get the best price and services.
