  • Need more bidders!

    AT&T could do it for half of what Eagle wants to charge our schools!

    • Support local

      AT&T????? Customer service at its finest (*sarcasm). Even if their bid was a lower price, that doesn’t mean it would be worth it. Example: I’d rather pay $15 for a great tasting pizza than $8 for something that tastes like cardboard.
