Best Buy acquires Speakeasy… small businesses fear all is lost

Speakeasy is one of the premiere ISPs today that grew out of one of the first Internet cafes back in the day. And while they target small businesses, they also keep the same mentality as they did over ten years ago… if you happen to want to share your DSL or wireless, no problem on their end! Or if you have linux, the no sweat.
While the CEO claims that it will continue to operate independently, many customers are voicing their concerns over if the overall management of Best Buy will effect the style of customer service that Speakeasy is known for.
Remember Geek Squad? One has to wonder if they’ll continue to strive for the awesome customer support they’ve had or bow to the will of their parent corporation.
