FLOWER MOUND, TEXAS [November 4, 2011] – FAVNET has partnered with Nitel, a nationally recognized provider of nationwide telecom network services, as a member of its Premier Partner Program. “This was a strategic move to ensure best telephony service availability in remote rural areas for our energy and small business customers,” states Hamilton Johnson, managing partner for FAVNET. “Combined with our wireless and VSAT offerings, this will ensure end to end telephony solutions for our clients,” continues Hamilton.

Nitel is the one of the fastest growing companies in the United States, having more than doubled in size in the last 3 years.
