While Andre slags Rocky I can tell you this. If Rocky were to start another ISP tomorrow you would see people move to him fast.
People bought Rocky, his dream, his belief, his stance. People didn't buy TSI internet. He has a big following just by name.
Would be interesting...
+ 1 to this!!
No offence to TSI Marc!
People should know that even though Rocky was the face of TSI for a while, Marc has equally been there since the grassroots of TSI. He would be the one upgrading the old routers and munching on Timbits during the mid-night hours. I could be wrong, but for a while, he was also one of the techies to help you if you called in to their support line. I think people should give Marc more credit than he deserves for the success TSI has been.
Just to say Rocky isn't the head-man anymore and TSI is a worse because of that undermines the background individuals that have put in all the effort and hardships since the beginning.
TSI is a different company now than half-a-decade ago because the consumer based has evolved. You need to adapt to survive.
Marc is his brother, from experience with an older brother nothing worse than people on here saying the other brother did a better job. Marc is doing pretty damn good. Rocky managed the business when it was far smaller, less complicated.
Marc moved it in to a whole new realm and it's stlll afloat. Give the guy a chance. He jumped in to the middle of a mess and did a lot of cleaning up. New building, new phone systems, new service (cable internet) and a new type of customer base.
