Have you ever visited a festival, fair or farmers market where they sell kettle corn? In our area the kettle corn vendors are local families who pop their corn fresh and fill the bags to the top and overflowing. They then shake the bags to fit even more kettle corn in the already full bag. There is no room to tie the bag until you enjoy a heaping helping of the delicious snack. Everyone walks away with a satisfied feeling in their stomach, in their wallet and knowing they helped support a local vendor.
Many large snack companies offer their products in big shiny bags with colorful graphics. They use billboards, TV and other advertising to make you feel they have the best snack on the market. They offer gimmicks like Bonus Bags with 10% more FREE if you buy this bag now. 10% of their bag is less than a handful, When you open the bag you realize it is 80% air.
We admit that we cannot compete with the marketing tactics of the huge internet service providers. They claim they are the fastest without showing any proof. They state they are the cheapest yet every month their bill increases and they charge additionally for even the smallest items. Typically, their realized speeds are only a fraction of what they promise.
QCOL is like the kettle corn vendor. We stuff our services full and overflowing. We add buffer to our internet speeds. Your realized speeds are typically greater than what we advertise. We don't charge monthly rental fees for modems or remote controls. Our broadcast and regional sports fees are built into our pricing, not undislosed add-ons. Our telephone service is packed with features with no additional charge.
Our goal is to be more like the kettle corn vendor than the corporate snack company. We hope that you will be as satisfied with QCOL service as we are with a bag of local kettle corn.
