PPC Offers Virtual Tech Training Amid COVID-19

Posted by Krista Thresh

PPC leads the industry when it comes to training and support, and while in-person training sessions are impossible with the current COVID-19 situation, we are still working to provide our customers with the support they are accustomed to.

Some studies have shown up to 40% of broadband service calls are related to drop network issues and many of these problems could be solved by proper installations by technicians. For about 20 years, we’ve offered qualifying customers our Tech Advantage® Training to avoid craft errors and decrease the number of truck rolls.
