How Bastarache Got Started With Wireless Zone…Nate first heard about Wireless Zone through several of his friends who owned Wireless Zone locations. Nate felt there was a high demand and need for a customer-service driven business in the Easthampton area, such as Wireless Zone, which exclusively offers Verizon Wireless products and services.
What intrigued Bastarache about Wireless Zone…Nate is a 12-year veteran of the automotive industry and was intrigued by the high customer satisfaction that Wireless Zone has upheld over the years. Nate sought to fulfill his lifelong passion for independent business ownership in an industry that is rapidly growing, unlike the automotive industry. He decided to move forward in the wireless technology industry, an industry that continues to evolve and grow regardless of the current economy and one that the community cannot live without given the increasing need to stay connected.
