IITS has negotiated with two wireless service providers for the best possible pricing on cell phone service, text and multimedia messaging, and wireless data plans. Employees whose work responsibilities require these wireless services, at the discretion of their area Vice President (administrative offices), Provost (academic areas), or the President (President’s office staff), may be asked to carry a cell phone, smart phone or other wireless data device.
Choosing a Provider and Device
AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless are both approved vendors for wireless voice and data purposes. Each provider has strengths and weaknesses in several areas including coverage and service quality, device function and monthly cost. IITS Client Services staff can work with you and your senior manager to help identify the right combination of provider and device to fit your work requirements and geographical areas of coverage.
Please visit our resource pages on Selecting a Cell Phone or Wireless Device and check out details on Plans for College-Issued Phones and Devices. Once you’ve looked at the options and have permission from your senior manager to move forward, please contact the IITS ProDesk by email or call 610.896.1480 to get started.
A Note on Personal Service
Many members of the community are not asked to carry a cell phone or wireless device as a requirement of their job. However we recognize that sometimes calls are made and text messages are sent in connection with your duties. For this reason, Haverford College has negotiated discounts with both AT&T Wireless and Verizon Wireless that may provide better pricing than standard undiscounted service from these providers. Please visit our resource pages on Discounts for Personal Cell Service for details.
