For an August Town Hall meeting, Fibernetics, the parent company of NEWT, put together a video titled Who Are We? which illustrated in less than three minutes our operating philosophy.

The thing is, other telecom companies see this increased connectivity as a license to gouge. They see this dependency on telecom as a method to extort the maximum dollars possible out of their own customers.
Telecom is no longer about telecom. It’s about the way we all live now, and we have decided that we want to be the company that provides our customers with:
