TDS just made its largest investment to date in managed services
by buying Arizona based OneNeck IT Services for $95 million. The
OneNeck acquisition illustrates TDS' commitment to hosted
and managed services - a commitment further demonstrated
by the formation of TDS Hosted & Managed Services, LLC, which
includes their other hosted IT acquisitions of TEAM Data Centers
Like other tier 2 telcos, TDS is heavily investing in the
capabilities to provide hosted and managed services. Windstream is
following a similar path. These telcos recognize the growing
business opportunity represented by hosted and managed IT
services and are executing a revenue diversification
strategy with these investments.
It's a strategy we recommend for CHR Solutions clients, most of
whom are not as large as a TDS or Windstream, and lack the
financial might to build these capabilities on their own. But that
lack of scale doesn't prevent you from executing the same strategy.
After all, the same conditions that drive companies like TDS and
Windstream to want to diversify revenue streams exists with telecom
carriers of all sizes.
We have the tools and platforms that can enable small tier 3 telcos
to take full advantage of this important opportunity. Contact us
for more details.
