American Telecom Services and Broadband National Team Up to Offer Consumers Easy Access Internet Services

CITY OF INDUSTRY, Calif., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Telecom Services , a leading provider of expandable home phone systems that are sold bundled with phone services that can save consumers up to $500 a year on their phone bills, has signed an agreement with Broadband National, the largest aggregator of broadband service offerings in the country. The agreement enables the two companies to offer consumers a "one-box solution" of high-speed Internet services from the leading brands in America bundled with VoIP services that are configured in the largest line of cordless multi-handset Internet phones in the industry. For the first time in a single packaged bundle, retailers will be able to offer a bundled VoIP/phone solution with broadband access, saving their customers hundreds of dollars a year through this combination.

"American Telecom Services wants consumers to be able to take advantage of the benefits and savings of Internet calling," said American Telecom Services CEO Bruce Hahn. "Our arrangement with Broadband National contributes to this by offering every eligible retail customer who currently has no service or only dial-up access the option of purchasing high speed services from the broadband provider of their choice. When consumers buy our cordless Internet phones bundled with Internet phone service at retail, there will be an insert in every package with web and toll-free access to order from most major high speed brands, giving them a 'one box solution' to save money on their home phone services if they do not already have the required broadband service needed for Internet telephone service."

"We believe," Hahn added, "that through this offering, many consumers will realize that the combination of broadband Internet and Internet phone service will save them hundreds of dollars each year compared to dial-up Internet and traditional phone service. In the end, they will not only have a faster Internet connection for data, but also far more calling features than they ever had before with their new Internet telephone service."

Broadband National is a marketplace for consumers to shop for available cable and DSL services from nearly 40 service providers, including Comcast, Verizon, Qwest, Time Warner Cable, AT&T and many other national and regional providers.

When consumers purchase an American Telecom Services branded Internet phone, they will be directed to a specially branded, private label Broadband National Web site where they will be able to choose from the broadband providers that are available where they live. They can also sign up through a dedicated toll-free number. From the Web site or over the phone, consumers will be able to compare plans, pricing and features for the services available in their area.

Because Internet calling is still a relatively new technology, consumers are sometimes confused about how they can take advantage of it, especially if they don't already subscribe to broadband service. But with this new bundled offer from American Telecom and Broadband National, the shopping experience is simplified allowing consumers to make one purchase and quickly begin to enjoy feature-rich calling at prices far less than traditional phone services and benefit from faster Internet speeds through their new broadband Internet connection.

American Telecom will make the Broadband National service available with the purchase of a variety of Internet phones. In return, American Telecom Services will receive a fee from Broadband National for each service account that is activated and will share a portion of those revenues with their retail partners. From a retailer's perspective, the combination of profit from the sale of Internet phones, service fees and residual income from VoIP services plus the service fees for broadband service activation, makes ATS' Internet phones one of the most profitable bundled solutions for Internet calling for retailers in America.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
