ABOUT US

YOUR PARTNER FOR THE LONG HAUL.

connecTel, Inc. and connecTel Wireless, Inc. are national landline and wireless telecommunications management, consulting and brokerage firms headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Our objective is to assist clients in improving their telecommunications infrastructure while reducing overall expenses. We accomplish this task by introducing the latest technology, eliminating inefficient and unneeded services, and providing the best possible pricing to service quality ratio that meets the customer’s specified requirements.

WE IMPROVE YOUR TELECOMMUNICATIONS
WHILE REDUCING COSTS.

OUR HISTORY

connecTel, Inc. began business in 2000 with two employees, and has grown to seventeen employees and a large network of valued partners. In addition to growing in size, connecTel has also grown tremendously in their product and service portfolio. Initially, Verizon represented a large portion of connecTel’s business. Today we represent more than 100 carriers in both the landline and wireless industries and offer services that cover the entire telecommunications spectrum.

 

In 2004 connecTel Wireless, Inc. was formed to deal exclusively with wireless products and services. While connecTel Wireless is similar in structure and shares a common ownership team with connecTel, they have a separate sales and customer support team to deal with the unique nuances of the wireless industry.

 

Alpha Communications Technologies has completed a merger with connecTel, Inc. as of January 1, 2017. The new Alpha connecTel Technologies LLC, is positioned to better serve our shared customers in this ever-changing telecommunications landscape. Hosted services, IT, premise-based PBX equipment, and traditional telecom are converging rapidly. This new entity has the resources and expertise needed to more effectively support our customer base and quickly adapt with ever-evolving technology.

 

CORPORATE OVERVIEW

connecTel, Inc. connecTel Wireless, Inc. and Alpha connecTel Techologies are privately held corporations with active owners who are fully engaged in running the companies. The two companies have been able to grow and succeed by encouraging employees to be responsive to client needs. The owners also strongly encourage and conduct ongoing training sessions to ensure employees have the most up-to-date information available in this quickly changing industry. All of this leads to a very low customer attrition rate, which contributes greatly to our success.

 

 

 
 

OUR STAFF

Our staff is the number one reason for our success. The customer support team is comprised of individuals that have a strong work ethic and a genuine concern for resolving client issues. The sales staff has many years of experience in the telecommunications industry and an in-depth knowledge of the products they sell. Both teams work closely together to ensure clients receive exceptional service and timely results. Plus, all employees attend regular training sessions and are cross-trained on other areas of the company. This training regimen allows each individual employee to understand the entire scope of a project and the customer’s needs.

While working full time, Joe attended the Katz Graduate School of Business at the University of Pittsburgh and obtained a master's of business administration with a concentration in finance in 1996. Joe’s first job was as a financial analyst at the AT&T corporate headquarters in Basking Ridge, NJ. After six years in the finance department, he then moved to a sales position in the Pittsburgh market. Joe took his sales experience with AT&T and joined Intermedia Communications in 1998 as a data sales executive. During that time he learned the telecommunications agent channel sales model and had the opportunity to start his own business in the fall of 1999, which was incorporated as connecTel, Inc. in April 2000. Joe has worked there since, and plans to continue to grow both connecTel, Inc. and connecTel Wireless, Inc. with the help of his excellent business partners.
