VIDEO AVAILABLE: Minuteman Support Services LLC Announces Preferred Service Provider Partnership With Connectifi Inc.

For Immediate Release

FITCHBURG, Mass./EWORLDWIRE/May 4, 2005 --- After fourteen months of positioning Minuteman Support Services (MSS) as a value-added service provider to ISPs, owners Mark Carbone and Daniel Barnes report the company is experiencing nationwide growth. MSS entered into a Preferred Service Provider agreement with Connectifi, Inc. of Scottsdale, Ariz. Connectifi, Inc. is one of the largest DSL and Wifi Internet service providers in the southwest catering to RV Parks, home users and small businesses.

"Minuteman Support Services is leveraging remote computer support technology to bridge the customer support gap that exists between ISPs and their subscribers. Internet service providers have, justifiably, drawn the line when it comes to supporting their subscribers' PCs or laptops," says Dan Barnes, co-founder and COO of Minuteman. "After speaking with many ISPs in our immediate area, we discovered that spyware is the driving force behind an increase in technical support call volume and subscriber frustration."

"We chose Minuteman Support Services because of the increase in issues affecting our customers," Jonathan Miller, CEO of Connectifi stated. "We have seen a drastic increase in the number of malware/spyware issues coupled with SP2 and other problems relating to PC configurations. About 90 percent of the calls we take to support our wireless networks are not directly related to wireless configuration. We have seen that number grow from approximately 40 percent in the previous year. Most of the calls we receive require technical support relating to issues within their PCs."

Miller added, "Our typical response to customers was to take their computers to a local retailer that services computers. We needed to find someone to help our customers without having them uproot their systems. Minuteman Support Services is a great choice for us to maintain a healthy relationship with our customers by making sure they are looked after either remotely or in person."

Barnes stated, "Between 80 and 90 percent of all residential and small business computers are infected with spyware, and small businesses stand to lose $250 billion in productivity due to spyware infections in 2005. Internet subscribers' ability to benefit from the full potential of their high-speed Internet connections is being severely impaired because of spyware infestation. It is only natural that subscribers are turning to their ISPs for support. Remote computer support technology and a strong nationwide onsite presence allow us to offer a value-added, single-vendor relationship to Internet service providers. National, regional and local Internet service providers can now take customer support to the next level and start pointing their subscribers down a path toward resolution when the problem is determined to be on the customers' end."
