(How to compare Telephone Systems
- How long has the dealer been in business
and under the same ownership?
STE-COM has been in business, with the same ownership for since 1981.
Vendors come in and out of business, are bought by other companies,

for the first three years.
- What kind of training will you and

travel charges, overtime charges or any hidden charges.

service, with no overtime, travel or hidden charges. 24 hours a day,
7 days a week.
