COMPARISONS OF DIFFERENT WIRELESS PROVIDERS

The purpose of this study is to explore the top wireless provider possibilities for our business. It will answer the following questions.
1. Will the devices available provide our employees with their business needs?
2. What are the different technologies available between providers and which are best for our employees?
3. Which plans are the best pricing to meet our budget?
