Tonight I was having a telephone chat with long time pal Jeremy Pepper, who recently left the dark side of PR (he was with an agency) and joined the brighter side, which means he's now on the client side of the business.
I've know Jeremy since he quarterbacked some of the moves Skype made when he lived in Phoenix. He was one of the first bloggers I started to follow, as his perspective on PR and Social Communications seemed very much aligned with mine.
Fast forward a few years he's now at Boingo, a company I like to cover and he's moved to L.A. after a stop in San Francisco. We were catching up, talking about his new gig and poof, the call dropped. I called back and a few minutes later the same think happened. Then again. So I switched from AT&T CallVantage and went with my PhoneGnome line whose long distance service runs over Junction Networks, a client of my agency. Poof. Same thing a few minutes later. Then twenty minutes more the same thing happens. HMMM.
Jeremy let me know XO is the provider. So, based on this I won't be recommending them to any one ever again.
