Dave Lewis, CEO 18 years ago, Dave Lewis was a partner in the telecommunications firm GVNW. With the passing of the Telecommunications Act of 1996, Dave’s rural-based ILEC customers were finally able to sell long distance services. The challenge, though, was to buy LD at a price low enough to be competitive. To overcome this hurdle, Dave came up with a simple idea. If the ILECs would work together, they could create enough scale to buy LD at a better wholesale rate — and ANPI was born.
