Patrick Keane - Owner/Broker
Patrick brings enthusiasm and experience to both the clients and staff of Simplified Communications. Keane started working in the telecom industry almost a decade ago, when he was recruited to work for Comcast. It was a challenging job for him, but he worked his way up to sales manager, with a decision to learn something new every day and focus on helping his customers.
This attitude served as a necessary foundation for starting Simplified Communications in 2014. The fast pace and ever-changing needs of telecom technology demand a desire to learn and evolve. Patrick is positioned to grow with customers’ needs and prepare them for success.
Is Patrick human?
While Patrick brings many superhuman traits to Simplified Communications, he still eats and has hobbies, too! His favorite burrito in Minneapolis is from Burrito Loco, but if he could only eat one food for the rest of his life it would be sushi. Part of his superhuman strength comes from breaking his leg as a baby when his dad forgot to close the baby gate (oops!). Patrick had to learn how to overcome (or avoid) obstacles from the beginning!
Patrick refuels by brainstorming at the office with the office dogs, saltwater spearfishing, and enjoying Minnesota life with his wife.
The entire team at Simplified Communications is excited to meet you and assist with your telecommunications needs.
Advances in technology are happening faster than ever. Communication devices and systems are upgrading and improving--but also becoming more complicated.
Simplified Communications simplifies the telecom process for you.
1. Simplify your schedule: make just one call!
Telecom brokers remove the hassle of comparing contracts, waiting on hold and learning a myriad of service plans.
Simplified Communications handles the upfront negotiations, and ongoing relationship--ensuring honest invoicing and service.
2. Simplify growth.
Telecom services of businesses are impacted greatly as growth, expansion or relocation occur.
A telecom broker can guide the process by asking the right questions to minimize the growing pains and allow the business to focus on their growth.
Let us assist as devices, software and service providers expand and change.
3. Simplify technology.
Even businesses happy with their size and location recognize that to continue to provide high levels of customer satisfaction, occasional changes in equipment and telecom services are important. A telecom broker helps to identify areas that could improve. We may also recommend how to replace fully depreciated equipment, and whether a purchase or lease is preferred.
A telecom broker becomes a one-call source for staying current on technology changes. Choose a broker that is committed to staying with you long after your new services are in place. A pro-active broker will keep you informed with regular updates as service solutions evolve.
Telecom brokers can assist in addressing glitches or failures in communication services. We offer remote resolution assistance as well as scheduled testing and system back-ups.
4. Simplify your wallet.
Telecom brokers audit your bills to ensure your company is getting the right deal. We know how to spot an error or duplicate charge. We also know how to give you the best deal possible from each service provider.
If you have considered switching carriers, we can assist in finding the best deal for you.

Simplified Communications is glad to see Zayo and Microsoft teaming up to bring broadband services to rural communities.
Zayo provides communications infrastructure services, including fiber and bandwidth connectivity, colocation and cloud infrastructure.
Microsoft is an American multinational technology company that develops, manufactures, licenses, supports, and sells computer software, consumer electronics, personal computers, and related services.
Zacks Equity Research reports:
“In a concerted effort to deploy rural broadband solutions across the United States, Zayo Group Holdings, Inc. ZAYO recently teamed up with Microsoft Corporation MSFT. Per the deal, Zayo will foster economic development and deliver seamless low-latency core fiber connectivity with a dedicated network infrastructure to some unprivileged communities, backed by Microsoft’s affordable broadband access initiative.
Dubbed Microsoft Airband Initiative, the venture was initiated in 2017 to eradicate the rural broadband gap across the United States, and was expanded worldwide last year. It has been successful in combining private sector capital investments with targeted support from public sector organizations to provide basic employment, education and healthcare amenities to needy communities, with the help of excellent network connectivity.
Given Zayo’s significant presence across Tier 1, 2, 3 and 4 U.S. cities, Airband works with multiple Internet access providers, equipment makers and local entrepreneurs to provide high-speed connection with the help of TV white space spectrum technology. This spectrum band has excellent broadcasting characteristics and large parts of it are unused in rural areas. Currently comprising 10 service provider partners, the Microsoft-backed undertaking aims to augment network connectivity to at least 3 million people in rural America by July 2022. Financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed.”
