Okay, we admit it. We want Baseball to be our best friend forever. With so much in common, it’s impossible to deny our BFF compatibility any longer. Do you think Baseball feels the same way about us? Probably not — it’s a celebrity after all. But just for kicks (just kidding — there’s no kicking in baseball), let’s see how many commonalities we share with America’s Favorite Pastime.
We’re Both a Little Superstitious
Dedicated ballplayers embrace rituals, focal points, traditions, and, yes, even superstitions. If they’re on a winning streak, they’ll do whatever it takes to keep that streak going. ACE Fiber can relate. Delivering top-speed internet is our game, and we take it very seriously. We follow the same five-step fiber deployment construction process every time. Why? Because it works. Our customers keep getting the best speeds with our process, so just like a ballplayer —
we’re not changing a thing while we’re winning.
We Both Endure the Joy and Pain of the Great Outdoors
Trust us, though. The fiber deployment process is no walk in the ballpark. Rich Contreras with PPC describes it well:
Every fiber network installation is unique, with its own set of challenges to overcome. Whether it is a topographical problem that needs to be factored into planning or an issue that comes up while on-site, everyone that has been involved with fiber deployments has their own particular war stories which have been solved with a combination of ingenuity, experience and technology.
Contreras further claims that several fiber network planners had to improvise solutions for “hungry bears” and “ferocious African bees” at their sites. Baseball has to compete with the elements, too, of course. We know what happens when there’s a rain delay — but we don’t know what happens if a swarm of bees is unleashed onto a baseball field mid-game. But don’t worry too much. Remember — Baseball is a mental game, and dodging bees is all about mental strategy. We’re sure Baseball can handle a few angry bees.
We Both Know the Importance of Living in the Present
After all, dedicated baseball players can handle a lot. They actually undergo mental training to prepare themselves for the time between plays, otherwise known as the time gap. We install high-speed fiber optic internet so that our customers don’t even have to know what a time gap is. Baseball players utilize professional mental health services to attain a more present state of mind for practices and game days. After we complete a home installation we offer to connect all of our customers’ personal wired AND wireless devices for them free of charge so they don’t have to worry about their “game day.” And while we certainly aren’t a sports psychology alternative (sorry, Baseball), we’re thrilled that we can take some of the mental load off our customers on the day of their install so that they can jump in and play right away.
Ultimately, other internet service providers just don’t get it. They live in past promises. They’ll tell you that they’re providing you with a high-speed connection, but then they’ll throw you a changeup and slow down your service when you least expect it. It’s like they want you to strikeout. Not us, though. Thanks to our fiber deployment process and our talented network installers, you know what pitch is coming every time. What pitch is coming, you ask? That’s right. It’s the fastball. Every pitch we throw is a fastball when it comes to your internet experience with ACE Fiber. And while it is a lighting-speed pitch, we make sure you know how and when to swing so you’ll hit a home run every time.
So, who knows? If we keep being the best for our customers and bringing the speed (or the heat as Baseball calls it), maybe Baseball will be our BFF one day. That would be cool. Then we could sit with Baseball at lunch and tell other isps to find another table. Just kidding, of course — they can sit on the bench instead.
