    I work for vannguard, but like when i worked for usc, they all mark numbers dance to their tune.

    I heard that unibar was to take over windstream in Iowa by October but asked for an extension. i think windstream gave them until January. Their problem was they wanted guys to cover up to 6 counties and be on call 24/7 for something like $14. the locators laughed at them when they told them that. so they are having issues staffing in IA.

    God I hope not I hate phone. For the last three years I heard we are not interested in phone, but the recently picked up reedsburg phone and cuba city phone and some local fiber. I didn't even know they put in a centruy link bid. that is a huge contract for a lot of rural areas. With them picking up a lot of other smaller phone century link is a player in phone now

    In what state? I think they lost the ameren of Illinois contract. I think ameren decided to split up their 3 zones to different contract locating firms

    I know usic took over the vannguard areas, but from what I know unibar still has a presence in WI. They retained their original areas and picked up a county or two above Milwaukee. Golden boy is up closer to that area and could best let you know what was taken up there.
