Ontario/T-burg Telephone expanding into Geneva

Ontario and Trumansburg Telephone Companies are expanding into the Geneva market, bringing a century of telephone experience and new services offered by their Finger Lakes Technologies Group Inc. subsidiary.FLTG, which recently became a Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC), is enabling OTTC to expand their service areas by selling telephone solutions outside their current territories. “BusinessFusion,” a new services package offered to Geneva business customers through FLTG, includes long distance, local telephone, high-speed Internet, unified messaging, voice mail, co-location, conference bridge services and Cisco Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) phone systems.“We are bringing our 100 years of excellence in customer service and product innovation into the Geneva market and expanding our companies’ reach as regional telecommunications providers,” said Paul Griswold, president and CEO, Finger Lakes Technologies Group Inc. and Trumansburg and Ontario Telephone Companies. “Now, Geneva-area businesses can take advantage of a more complete communication and data networking solution.”FLTG owns its own telephone switches and a 300-mile, fiber-optic network, allowing businesses to get connected to any carrier – since FLTG can route traffic from any customer on the network – and to take advantage of lower long-distance rates.
