MORRISTOWN, New Jersey - March 17, 2005 - Telarus, Inc., premier telecom master agent and patent holder of real-time carrier quotes, was awarded the Platinum Partner award by ACC Business, the
business division of AT&T. The award is presented annually to the top 1% of all agent partners. Adam Edwards, president and
CEO of Telarus, accepted the award during the ACC Business awards banquet held in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"This award validates the dedication and hard work of our agents. Armed with real-time carrier quotes from GeoQuote, they have
been able to sell ACC Business products on the AT&T footprint better, faster, and more accurately than any of our
competition." commented Edwards. "We are humbled and honored to be inducted into a very elite class comprised of fine
telecommunication master agents, all of whom we hold with the utmost respect. ACC Business has provided us with the products
and the support that make our jobs that much easier."
According to Patrick Oborn, Chief Technical Officer of Telarus, Inc., ACC Business has the most ubiquitous carrier footprint
of all of the 14 vendors loaded into GeoQuote. Having such a broad coverage area allows ACC Business to compete for more
opportunities than any other carrier.
"ACC Business has the unique advantage of being just about everywhere," commented Oborn. "This advantage really comes
into play in areas of the country that are rural, or undeserved by the other national DS1 providers. ACC Business takes
this advantage and combines it with excellent provisioning and customer service. Almost all of our customers who sign with
ACC Business report on-time installation, correct and easy-to-understand bills, and show a willingness to renew their
contracts at the end of their terms."
"We have enjoyed our partnership with ACC Business and look forward to many successful years to come," added Edwards. "The
broadband revolution is just beginning and ACC Business and Telarus are in a prime position to capture a good percentage
of that market."
