TekSavvy Solutions Inc. believes in doing what’s right – for our customers, and for our employees. We do this by treating people the way we would want to be treated: fairly, honestly, and with respect and consideration. From our phone offerings to our Internet services, we believe Canadians should enjoy great access, at a fair price, and without the kinds of unfair restrictions and fees that smack of oligopolies whose focus is their bottom line. We believe citizens are tired of the status quo where the gates to Internet access are controlled by a select few corporations. We believe that consumers shouldn’t have to feel their only choice is the best of the worst. We believe you want an alternative that advocates for your rights and earns your trust, and your business. We are that alternative. Since our inception in 1998, we’ve been working hard to improve the industry. Our business practices are effective and transparent. We believe in candor. We believe in integrity. And, most of all, we believe Canadians deserve a better choice and a better deal. It seems we’re onto something. TekSavvy has been ranked as Canada’s #1 ISP on dslreports.com for 5 years in a row. Profit 100 magazine has repeatedly named us as one of Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies. Our customer list stands at over 300,000. And we believe that it will continue to grow. Because, in the end, doing what’s right is the best business strategy of all.
