EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – July 14, 1999 - Quantum Communications Group, Inc., a leading Internet consulting firm, announced the addition of E-Guys to its growing list of Virtual Internet Service Providers (VISPs).  E-Guys, based in Springfield, Missouri and launched in March of 1999, is establishing a team of technicians to provide on-site computer and Internet support to both residential and business customers. 

Don Hunsaker and Joe Blasingim founded e-Guys in March of 1999.  “Becoming an Internet Service Provider (ISP) will work well with our other services to promote and compliment each other,” stated Don Hunsaker.  “Once they become our Internet customer, E-Guys is uniquely positioned to provide them with custom training and support based on their particular needs.”    

Quantum’s Virtual Internet Provider (VIP) program helps businesses of all kinds become ISPs with no equipment to purchase, and no need to hire extensive technical and/or sales staffs.  The program is completely branded, from the Internet browser and Portal Start Page, to the Email domain and technical support.  According to Patrice Smith, Director of Marketing at Quantum Communications Group, “VIP is gaining the attention of many companies across the country, largely due to the impact the Internet is having on the economy and their continued need to differentiate themselves in highly competitive industry sectors.”  In a recent Jupiter Communications Consumer Survey, 47 percent of US online households indicated their willingness to switch to an Internet access service provided by an affinity group or company if they were provided with an incentive (e.g., subsidized prices, rebates, miles, etc.).  “This bodes well for companies looking to get into the Internet business,” added Smith.

“OnQue Internet Services was originally founded out of frustration with other nationwide ISPs, “ stated Leonard Davis, President of OnQue.  “While we appreciate the work that AOL and MSN have done as pioneers in our industry, we believe there are millions of Internet subscribers who are fed up with busy signals, Email delays, trouble with attachments, the clutter of advertisements and the overall difficulty in reaching customer service in a timely fashion…if at all.  OnQue’s charter is to provide the discriminating Internet subscriber with the fastest, most feature-rich Internet service at a value price.  Once you go online with OnQue, we guarantee you’ll get the best service available on the web!”

OnQue is a Virtual Internet Service Provider (VISP) headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  The company offers customers the latest Internet applications and features, high speed (56K/V.90) local dial-up coverage in nearly 2,000 cities nationwide coupled with 24/7/365 day customer support.  To promote its unique Internet offering, OnQue is also implementing a nationwide affiliate program, creating a network of dealers/resellers across the country who profit from OnQue subscribers who sign up from their site.  “We have closely modeled what other leaders in the e-commerce arena are doing – like Amazon.com and the like,” state Leonard Davis, President at OnQue.  “This is a new model for doing business on the Internet, and we expect big things to happen as a result.”  OnQue Internet services will also be the premier Internet service on Cellular One Group’s national website.
