Connecticut’s BBB Provides Toll Free Number for Consumers

As the bad economy and the failing auto industry drives consumers to buy used vehicles instead of new, the Connecticut Better Business Bureau is promoting a toll free service to help consumers find good deals on used cars.
Some of the information discussed on the toll free hotline are the age of the car, safety issues, how long the consumer intends to keep it, features, and anticipated maintenance expenses. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) toll-free hotline is 800-424-9393.


Studies Show VoIP Service Lacks Quality, Reliability

Recent reports about difficulties with broadband (VoIP) phone service is are no surprise to many of us in the telecommunications industry.

VoIP users may also find that some calls wont connect to the other party. And recent news reports mentioned concerns about connecting with 911 emergency services. Until these glitches are fixed, fiber optics is considered a superior option, particularly for toll free phone service.
