I was meeting with a potential client the other morning and we were discussing a number of HBS saving opportunities. The subject came to their phone bill. They said wait a minute let me go pull it out.

My first question. Why is it so high?

A quick glance showed me that they were signed up on the Verizon custopak program. They also had unlimited local, regional and long distance calling. Why all these premium services and plans? This was only a small business.Still something didn’t look right.I started paging thru and saw they were being charged $29.99 a month for dial-up service.I thought you told me that you have DSL. Yes, I pay $59.99 a month for it.

OK, I see that. Why are you paying for dial-up?

I also see you are paying $49.99 a month for web hosting. What is that? I don’t know, I never ordered it.

They were being billed $80 a month for services they were not aware of, plus they were paying for premium services they never use.

We see this happen all the time.I wish it could be said that this was a rare occurrence.

That is what makes Hutchinson Business Solutions unique. Most companies would never have said anything and just flipped the service as is.

Is that the right thing to do?

It takes a little more time; we make a little less commission however we provided a genuine service and savings for our clients.

Say What?

December 6, 2007



Are you on the Verizon network?



Have you looked at your bill recently?



Just what services are you paying for?



Custopak -What is this Custopak program? Are they just regular lines?



Centrex – Wait a minute, this says Centrex and it even cost more? What does this do?



Welcome to the Verizon hook – line – and sinker!



Many clients when they called Verizon to install plain old telephone (Pots) lines are told that Verizon was running a special and that installation charges would be waived if they signed up for the Custopak or Centrex programs. The problem is that 95% of the public never knows just what these programs do and as a result do not use them.

 End Result: 

You telecom charges are higher than they should be. Are you interested in saving from 15% to 40%? 

Take a moment to look at your current Verizon bill.
