The new Blog (www.afsnetworks.com/fiberconnectblog) will be maintained by the AFS team to provide viewers with relevant news about company-wide initiatives, educational posts about the Telecom industry, customer success stories, and details related to the 10 major metropolitan markets they serve. With information about network upgrades, planned downtime, road construction and real-time local topics, AFS anticipates this Blog becoming a “go to” resource center for all of its customers and partners.
Founder and CEO Dave Rusin stated, “After observing the warm reception my op-ed Blog Telecom Straight Shooter has received over the past few years, we realized the Telecom industry is truly embracing up-to-the-minute, relevant information. An executive level-maintained Blog that provides readers with valuable, actionable information is a natural fit with the core value of AFS to provide exceptional network service and to live by our Golden Rule business values.”
The Fiber Connect Blog reaffirms the AFS motto of putting its customers first by giving them an pportunity to candidly comment on stories, ask questions and collaborate with the executive team. It also marks another step in AFS’s 2010 social media initiative, which also includes the launch of the company’s Twitter account (http://twitter.com/afsnetworks).
Rusin concluded, “As my colleagues, friends and peers know, I am not shy about voicing my opinions so I am always excited to launch platforms that encourage everyone to do the same. It’s a great way to celebrate 10 successful years in business.”
