    I heard a rumor that Unibar hired a guy away from Usic to set up a contract bid for this. In this same rumor I was told that Unibar was awarded the contract nationally.

    As far as I know, Windstream was the only contract in New York that USIC had. Did that lose it to Premier just now? I have seen guys in USIC trucks last year doing it so I know they had it at one point.

    Look at Locatorjobs.com. DPG(formerly UNIBAR) got the contract in PA, NC and SC. I believe Windstream is now AT&T. Premier got the contract in KY and NY.

    I remember one of the state managers of Premier talking about how much Premier hated phone and when Verizon went up for bid back in the mid 2000's when ECSM got it that Premier didn't even bid on it.

    Seems that they have changed thier minds on telephone.

    The Windstream contract, (including McLeod, Paetec, KDL & Norlight) for MI, IN, IL and OH was won by Turnkey Network Solutions out of Grand Rapids, MI. They are still looking for experienced locators in Ohio and Illinois. They only locate fiber and all of their fiber routes are drawn on one map showing risers, hand holes, man holes and surrounding addresses which can all be edited by locators in the field. They pay well and have excellent benefits and their website is www.tkns.net.
