    Hi all, we're evaluating our wireless business needs and provider, and the direct connect feature seems to only be available with Nextel. Are there any other providers that offer this feature? Are there any other other comparable features from other providers? Would other Nextel users current and past give me some feedback on their experience with Nextel and their thoughts on the wireless service provider that can render the best value for early morning field personnel?

    Thanks,
    Tom[​IMG]

    If it is one place that Nextel excels, it is with the business customer. My Wireless Article.

    Currently, there are agreements being forged to bring "direct connect" to Verizon and Sprint. Don't hold you breath, it will be a while. See
    this thread.

    Thanks for the feedback Kevin...has anyone else had experiences in the Orange County area with Nextel that they'd like to share? One other question...for now anyway...what seems to be the best service price per unit for a business with 200-500 users? The plan would likely be 400 min, 100 direct connect min, 100 text pages.

    Hi Everyone, I will have to agree with kevin on this one, Nextel does know how to treat their Business customers. [​IMG] My personal experiences in California have been great, they seem to cover alot of areas in cali and are expanding every day. I would personally recommend Nextel...Business or personal.

    Rich,

    I agree with you about Nextel expanding every day. I have seen them put up more new towers here in Orange County than any other carrier in the past 3-6 months. I'm actually surprised they need as many towers as they've been putting up since they use an 800 MHZ frequency. Their towers are often as close together as Sprint's and Cingular's are. Maybe capacity issues?
