TekSavvy 15th Anniversary

Click for full size
Click for full size
I thought I'd share this with everybody here online... I sent this email to our staff earlier today but I think it also applies to our customers and so, I wanted to share the small moment we had today and also to take the time to thank our customers! This is for you too! Thanks for all the great years we've had and for the many sure to come!

*********

Hello gang,

Today is somewhat of a milestone for TekSavvy. On this day back in 1998, TekSavvy was incorporated, making *this day* our 15th Anniversary!

We haven’t planned anything much other than some cupcakes! It’s a low key thing but it’s one more of those feathers in our cap if you will.

It’s been a heck of a ride to date and to think of all that has happened since then. Can you remember Y2K? oh no! the world was going to end! Come to think of it, that’s two world endings we’ve survived now! 2012 being the other..

We’ve had many successes along the way and I think the most impressive number I can highlight is that we now have 195,000 subscribers. We will likely cross the 200k mark next month or early in March. Very cool stuff! Since October we’ve added more than 20,000 new subscribers. The growth is nothing short of awesome!

More than anything though, I’m proud of what we’ve achieved. What you’ve achieved. None of this is made possible without the spirit we have here at TekSavvy. The spirit that lives within each one of us, that drives us each day to help one another, to demand more from one another.

There are many reasons why we’re successful but the one that always stands out to me is the people who work here at TekSavvy. I no longer know each one of you but somehow I know that we share something in common. We care.

So, let’s celebrate this day, without fanfare…

but with cupcakes!

P.S. To our co-workers in Gatineau, we didn’t forget about you! Well, maybe we did but we’re still getting things organised so we stop doing that! Honestly though, we thought of doing this on Thursday last week. Hehe We’ll get you guys cupcakes too!

Cheers!

Marc

I didn't know TekSavvy was founded 15 years ago. Wow! You guys have come a long way. You've offered people an inexpensive and sensible alternative to overpriced Internet access. I'm so glad I made the switch from Rogers. The lower price and increased monthly bandwidth limit made it a no-brainer decision.

I'm happy that you guys are continuing to grow. And I'll continue to be a TekSavvy customer for a very long time. Even with the speed-matching issue and the possibility of new rates (c'mon CRTC, hurry up), I'm still content with my service.

Happy 15th anniversary!

Sincerely,
A happy customer

Hehe.. Well, I offered most a cupcake today! That's got to count for something!? - Would you like a cupcake? We have lemon, vanilla, chocolate and milk chocolate. Oh and we also have cookies, but you can have a cupcake and a cookie if you want!

You wouldn't believe it but some had already been very sneaky and polished off a table where they were sitting ahead of us starting to hand them out! Don't you worry, I know their names for sure! (Yeah you know who you are!)

Happy 15th TSI and Marc!

While some recent business decisions have generated quite the firestorm (and rightly so imho), I think it is important to remember you guys are still the relative good guys! Without TSI, I'd still have a 60GB monthly cap from Rogers LOL...

Congrats!

2 years with Teksavvy after switching from Rogers, very happy and better experience.

PS: not sure what nowhere is seeing in the spelling, but it's correct! you can read it as "15 years were different...." or "We are different...." and I think they meant the second sentence, because the word "celebrating" won't have a place in the phrase anymore

In ways I've been a TSI customer for about 5 of those years and I haven't once been disappointed. Well done guys!

I was watching a DVD made this last year of a BBC TV concert recorded 40 years ago and nearly fell over that it was actually SO long ago. Beware TSI guys, the years will start to fly by and these 15 years run the risk of disappearing into the history books! Keep the flag flying and don't become history! Many many more birthdays!

Well done!
