What Our Partners Say

Personalized service and expertly engineered and managed mult-vendor, best-of-breed solutions are just some of the reasons why trusted advisors choose to recommend AireSpring to their clients. As a global managed services provider to over 22,000 enterprise locations worldwide, our mission is to help our clients connect and communicate easily and securely. But don’t take our word for it. Listen to what our partners have to say about why they choose to work with AireSpring.

Adam Edwards


Number one thing I like is the people we deal with… Also another thing is always staying one step ahead. AireSpring did a great job of moving from long distance reseller to local to multidata pipes, SIP, and meshed networks… AireSpring is really smart about staying ahead.

Alan Sandler

Founding Partner
Sandler Partners

They have shown their integrity by always paying evergreen residuals to their agents. They have shown their business acumen by constantly evolving their services to help their agents meet the changing needs of our customers. And they show their enthusiasm for their work and their channel by being accessible when we need them.

Andrew Bond

Trinity Network Solutions

I work with Charlie Lomond and he is a
hard worker, super-responsive. I’ve worked
with him for as long as he’s been there…I
never have to ask where’s my quote or my
project status. He knows what the broker
needs every day. AireSpring has some great
products. I’ve sold MPLS and MPLS with
voice and internet. I’ve done your Bring
Your Own Bandwidth (BYOB), SIP Trunking and other services. AireSpring has a broad product line and the products and coverage are available nationally. All the project managers I have worked with at AireSpring have been great.

Ashley Powell

VP Business Development
Creekview Group

AireSpring’s product suite fits our customers to a “T!” Everyone on the team is very responsive and gets us the information, help or results we need quickly. We often experience issues that need to be addressed urgently, and the AireSpring teams are always willing to roll up their sleeves and work with us. By participating in customer conference calls with AireSpring, I’ve gotten training on new products and have a better understanding of the solutions being proposed.

Barclay Gaston

Unified Communications & Carrier
Services Specialist
CT Solutions

We started doing a lot of AireSpring
business as soon as I started at CT Solutions
in 2014, because it was so much easier
to tell customers that even if they were
unfamiliar with the AireSpring name, we’ve
done a lot with you and you do a great
job on install. We can put people at ease
because we are talking about our own firsthand experience as a customer of yours.

Cary Parris

Co-Founder & CTO
iTransit Solutions

Most of our clients are financial institutions, medical facilities, international businesses and large retail locations… As a result, we need to work with CLECs that are good at handling complex, multi-location orders. AireSpring’s operations team is excellent at communicating with all involved team players for each order so that everyone is on the same page and the order goes smoothly.

Chad Midtlien

Five Star Telecom

AireSpring has a vast portfolio of services that our customers can take advantage of. Very few carriers offer the breadth of services AireSpring has available. I like the fact that there is traditional voice and data, UCaaS, SIP, plus Cloud Connectivity and Business Continuity. Many of our customers use these services, along with AireSpring’s SD-WAN and wireless.

Dominic Antonini

Technology Source

For starters, the free 24/7 circuit monitoring that AireSpring provides on its network and via its SD-WAN solution is invaluable. For example, we’ve installed AireSpring’s SDWAN for our Nashville office, because they were having a lot of problems with the cable company which goes down constantly. The choice there is between the cable-co or AT&T, so with AireSpring’s product we were able to do a little bit of both. In the first year, the cable circuit has gone down three times and our people didn’t even know it was down, until AireSpring notified them of it and indicated they were already working on it. We had used an OTT hosted PBX system which was problematic, especially as in this business we can’t afford to be down. This experience has made everyone a believer in AireSpring and in the technology.

Elizabeth Cortez

Founder, My Telecomm

When I first was introduced to AireSpring and was told how great they were to work with, I resisted at first because I did not know AireSpring. I finally gave them an order and now, I do everything through AireSpring. I am a stickler for every detail and I have never had a problem where I couldn’t call someone at the Customer Service Department to get help. You guys make me feel so special and you do a really good job of taking care of my clients—you really earn the business. Over time, I’ve worked with every department, from submitting an order to Service Delivery and Repairs. This is why you get so much of my business —no one else makes things easier for me the way you do. Most importantly, AireSpring has a diverse set of managed services and products for our clients. AireSpring treats everyone like they truly care about you and your client. AireSpring employees have a “how can we make AireSpring better” attitude. The Order Department is available to review orders before submission, Service Delivery has project managers that are dedicated to multi-location deals, and they have an open line of communication with you throughout the entire order…

I have never been stuck on hold with AireSpring for eternity or been transferred and hung up on… What more can you ask for?”

Eric Asquino

President and Founder

The best thing about working with AireSpring is the various self-help tools and systems available to agents, particularly the QuoteSpring quoting tool… AireSpring’s competition can take days processing orders… With something as quick and consistent as QuoteSpring, I do not have to sit around, waiting for emails to get quotes finalized.

Jeff Powell

Sybran Communications

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the commissions and SPIFFs. They are among the best in the industry and our sub-agents love them. Of course, commissions have to be backed up by a good product. We use AireSpring’s hosted PBX as a customer ourselves, so we are confident in the product.

Jeff Rains

Telecom Professionals

We like working with AireSpring because our customers can consolidate several services and locations all on one invoice. AireSpring also places a high value on training and partner support. I’ve been through many training classes and AireSpring’ s SD-WAN and security training with Mike Chase [SVP Solutions Engineering, AireSpring], is second to none. Additionally, our representative, Rick Komon [Regional Channel Manager], responds quickly with pricing and information that our clients need.

Jerry Goldman

Select Communications

AireSpring has surfaced as a favorite provider for our customers and our sales team. The overwhelming feedback that I have received is that AireSpring is extremely responsive, and they listen to our customers’ needs. The AireSpring team is very knowledgeable and very easy to work with.

John Agathon

Channel Partner
Sandler Partners

I love AireSpring, you guys have done a great job…My experience with AireSpring is that they are nimble and fast. I call it the “un-carrier” experience. There is so much “big carrier fatigue” among agents and customers these days and AireSpring brings a breath of fresh air to the table, from ordering, provisioning and billing, through to support. The entire life cycle is so much easier than with a really big carrier with all their rules and regulations…You have a can-do attitude, it’s “we’re going to get it done.” Another strength is the breadth of solutions you bring to the table, so you really can just go to one carrier for all needs, including managed connectivity, cloud, voice and data…At AireSpring, you have the great advantage of being able to bring the whole solution to the table under one bill, with ‘one throat to choke.’

Jon Arnold

JA Communications Group

Where do I start? The responsiveness. AireSpring is tremendously responsive when asking for a pricing quote or working with me if I have a complex deal and setting up a call with customers and agents.

Kathleen Waters

President & CRO
Creekview Group

AireSpring is one of my go-to suppliers for a number of reasons. When I first partnered with AireSpring, Daniel [Lonstein, President,] made clear to me that he would do whatever it took to make deals work. He has kept that promise, and that is one of the company’s primary strengths. When AireSpring says they are going to do something, they do it. In telecommunications, where we rely on each other so much to process orders and complete deals, it is critical that all parties follow through and deliver on what they say they will. AireSpring does that.
In addition, AireSpring’s extensive product line makes my job much easier. It’s hard to find a supplier that has both a good supply model and a rich product set to match. AireSpring has both. I would venture to say that their Project Management team is one of the best, if not THE best, in the business. The AireSpring Project Management team executes the finest roll out for complex installations that I have ever seen in a supplier.

Larry Messer

Senior Agent Manager
Datatel Solutions

I’ve been working with AireSpring since its very early days…I love that I can call people…directly…I love your real-time quoting tool, QuoteSpring™ and I do my own quotes using it. It’s probably the best in the industry…I have all the AireSpring speed dial numbers set on my phone. If I get a quote from AireSpring and I have a question about it, I can just give someone a call and get it cleared up quickly.

Marilyn Dooley

Founding Partner
Telco Management Group

AireSpring is by far the easiest carrier we work with. Quote requests are handled quickly and returned the same day. Your wholesale program with AT&T is outstanding and gives our agents the security knowing they are selling a quality data or fiber connection coupled with your voice. Our project management team loves the methodical way you install multi-site orders. The process couldn’t be smoother. Your operations department couldn’t be more responsive and helpful. You are definitely our carrier of choice!

Meg Toups

CEO & Founder
BlueSky IT Partners

AireSpring’s engineering knowledge and experience around VMware SD-WAN is the best I’ve seen. Also, the communication from the pre-sales and post sales team is excellent. There will always be issues in IT and having a responsive team that is willing to roll their sleeves up and solve problems makes all the difference.

Michael J. Onystok

SVP Market Development, Channel Partnerships & Strategic Operations

What do I like the most? It’s the people! I love the people at AireSpring, and over the years I’ve worked with various Channel Managers, including Ron McNab, SVP Channel Sales and more recently engaging with Shane Speakman, VP of Channel Sales and Operations. I’ve been really pleased to get to know the Lonsteins. Both Avi (Avi Lonstein, CEO) and Daniel (Daniel Lonstein, President and Chief Revenue Officer) have been out to our Chicago headquarters and they are at just about every channel industry tradeshow. They keep their finger on the pulse of the industry. They are great, honest businessmen, and they are loyal, hardworking and smart. They make it so very easy to do business.

Patrick Oborn


AireSpring is big enough to handle larger projects, but small enough to do custom things, like mapping to different MPLS networks, so you can synthesize things across one MPLS environment. AireSpring has the ability to get any carrier you need on the wholesale side. It’s a bit like having the “playdough” of telecom, where you can shape and customize the deal to fit whatever your customer needs it to do. AireSpring can always do it… At AireSpring, if they need to do some special things to get a job done, they just do it with a smile.

Paul Bedigian

Green Razor Communications

When I’m asked why I do business with AireSpring, I say because you guys are so easy to work with. I know the people, they are a family business, not a micro-business. If something happens, you don’t get siloed off into a different department, or forced to deal with an automated system…We have a relationship with your people…I tell customers about the AireSpring Escalation List, with access all the way up to the CEO– I just show it to them, and explain that I have never had to use it…AireSpring does not have a direct sales team, you are not going to compete with me…

Paul Nahon

IT Sales Consultant
2Evolve Technologies

Why do I like working with AireSpring? …Your QuoteSpring tool and the agentstar.net website for the channel [are] extremely valuable tools for partners like me. I’ve worked with (AireSpring Solutions Engineer) on design work and they are phenomenal on a technical level, getting down in the weeds when that’s what is necessary. Many of my clients are very technical and he can always lead them to the next step… We’ve created several hybrid proposals for my clients that include SD-WAN… I haven’t seen another provider with an SD-WAN product like AireSpring’s, with the VMware SDWAN platform and your bandwidth approach for in-tunnel traffic…

Steve Paratore

Networking Negotiators, Inc.

I’ve been working with AireSpring since I was introduced to Chris Abbott [AireSpring Channel Manager]. AireSpring does a wonderful job…I send in a quote request and it’s normally back within thirty minutes. Another reason I like doing business with AireSpring is that the ordering process for new circuits is very easy. With AireSpring the ordering rests with them—a salesperson’s dream. The biggest reason I like working with AireSpring is because they have Mike Chase [AireSpring Senior VP Solutions Engineering] available to help out on any deal from a technical perspective.

Tim Basa

VP Sales

When it comes to working with a carrier, partner or aggregator like AireSpring, we have a specific set of criteria that have to be met, including people, products, delivery and ease of doing business. AireSpring checked all those boxes, plus there was strong demand from our partners who wanted us to bring AireSpring into our portfolio.

Tony Bailey

SW Region 2Evolve Technologies

The best thing about working with AireSpring is the various self-help tools and systems available to agents, particularly the QuoteSpring quoting tool… AireSpring’s competition can take days processing orders… With something as quick and consistent as QuoteSpring, I do not have to sit around, waiting for emails to get quotes finalized.

Tony David

American Telecom Solutions

AireSpring certainly offers the best customer experience. I know—I work with all the carriers in the U.S. and entrust my largest customers to AireSpring. I like the responsiveness from the sales team to the project management team and upper-level management to ensure customer satisfaction. Very easy to get to the top if ever needed

Troy Coleman

Cloud Aggregation Specialist

Customers have nothing but good things to say about AireSpring’s support as a whole. My channel manager, Jon Massad, has a saying
that has stuck with me, one that I associate with AireSpring. He says, ‘Your customers are gold—every customer is gold to me and to AireSpring.’ I promise, you don’t hear that
from other carriers.

Vince Bradley

CEO Abundant IoT

AireSpring has everything our agents need to close business. First, AireSpring has an incredible underlying carrier network, which provides ubiquitous coverage. That network is coupled with a diverse and vast product set, giving agents a broad portfolio of services and access that covers just about any customer need… I’ve also known the owners for 24 years now, and WTG has been partnering with AireSpring for over a decade. I’ve seen AireSpring grow and I’ve admired the way the Lonstein brothers have established an effective, yet light-hearted approach to business…

Zina Hassel

ZLH Enterprises

We work with AireSpring as a supplier in our portfolio because of their quick response time, network reliability and ability to get to the right person in the event that there is an issue. Impromptu technical calls with a client are never an issue with AireSpring. Whether it be pricing, engineering assistance, provisioning response, or service and support, we are confident in the sincerity and commitment of top level management (yes, from the CEO, Avi Lonstein on down) to maintain high level delivery to the end user client. We know that AireSpring has the option of being a single biller for multiple services, and we intend to take advantage of that for our clients. Their ability to provision multiple underlying carriers is certainly an attraction.
