COVID-19 Resources for businesses:

Are you cancelling an event or meeting? Information from Southeaster Data Comm,  a local Chamber member business: "For the duration of the Covid-19 crisis, I am willing to wave all initial programming and installation costs. We can also get them new lines for their phone system and forward their current lines to it so they will not be out of service. I an go into more detail with anyone interested in knowing more. Average cost per user is between $20 and $30 per month. The more users, the cheaper the cost per month. And until we are told we can’t leave the house, I am still able to come onsite and take care of any other phone issues." See his FLYER HERE   Call Tim Robertson @ 336.207.0554
