IT Guru Solutions, Inc. was able to provide them with a simple IT Guru UX Solution:
- Contract and cost analysis + savings
- Gathered current bills;
- Collected competitive quotes for phone, internet & TV services;
- Identified immediate savings opportunities:
- 2 phone lines.

Reduced monthly out-of-pocket costs from $579/month to $389/month - more than $6600 savings over the term!
- Customer now has only one bill for one cost every month - for all above services
- Wi-Fi now works - since taking ownership of the business - so it actually working at all is a first for them
- Internet is now over 10x faster than it was before
- Telephones, credit card machine, printers, laptops, and smartphones all operate on the network perfectly now
Current pricing for local fiber, cable modem, DSL and other internet services is about all I learned this time around.
