South Boston, Virginia – October 27, 2023 – Mid-Atlantic Broadband Communities Corporation (MBC) is proud to announce the successful implementation of TransUnion TruContact™ Universal Order Connect (UOC), powered by Neustar®, to enhance serviceability and streamline order processing. This cutting-edge technology allows MBC to offer wholesale buyers a more efficient and automated way to interact, send orders, and receive real-time status updates, ultimately accelerating service delivery and providing a superior customer experience.

“In the dynamic landscape of today’s telecommunications industry, the critical nature of swift service activation for wholesale buyers and their clientele is vital,” said Vice President of Business Development at TransUnion, John Carr. “Over the years, we’ve fostered connections between wholesale buyers and sellers, and we take pride in the pivotal role our Universal Order Connect solution plays in enabling MBC as a wholesale seller to automate order processing, allowing for expedited service delivery and enhanced overall customer experience.'”
