Find out how your business can save money on your business phone and Internet services with these quick tips! 

It is a New Year and for some, that means their current phone or Internet contracts are coming to an end. Since phones and Internet are a necessity for a business to run, it can be an easy cost to overlook. Are you aware of what you are currently spending and why? TDS has been successful in finding savings for our customers with their monthly phone and Internet services. Although TDS can provide a full analysis of all your bills including local and long-distance charges, T1/PRI services, Internet and more, we wanted to give you a few quick tips to save money on your business phone and Internet services.

Tip 1: Eliminate phone features you don’t need or use

This could include call waiting, call return, anonymous call rejection and much more. Look at your latest phone bill and see if there are features listed that you are no longer using. If you stop and question a feature, then there is a good chance you are not using it and probably won’t anytime soon.  

Tip 2: Bundle your services

If you are currently receiving Internet and phone service from separate providers, consider using the same provider for both. Most carriers will offer discounted bundle pricing. Talk to a representative at TDS if you are interested in learning about different carriers and which would be right for your business.

Tip 3: Eliminate third-party billing charges

If your receiving business phone service from a local company, such as CenturyLink, AT&T or Verizon, make sure you analyze each month’s phone bills. Phone companies operate as third-party billing agents. Third-party billing charges are typically for services you didn’t order or don’t want. TDS can take the time to review your bills and save you $10 to $25 each month. This may not seem like a lot but trust us, it will add up!

Tip 4: Eliminate frill services

If you are paying for internet packages that include web hosting, virus protection, or any service that you are already receiving from another provider, eliminate the services or drop down to a less expensive plan that does not include unneeded features.
