VMedia Inc. is Canada's leading independent provider of residential telecom and broadcasting services, serving a growing customer base of Canadian households coast to coast. VMedia is also a leader in streaming TV technology, providing a B2B, TV-as-a-Service solution to third party content providers and distributors.
Since its launch in 2013, VMedia has been dedicated to providing Canadians with affordable Internet, TV, Home Phone and Home Security services, offering a real, competitive alternative to the major incumbents. VMedia's value proposition of lower prices, unlimited usage, no contracts, innovative features and excellent customer service continues to drive our growth as more and more Canadians discover the VMedia advantage.
VMedia is also committed to fighting for competition in the marketplace to ensure that Canadians have the benefit of fair pricing for telecom services, in particular residential internet, which is now a utility and essential to every household. We have been at the forefront of this years-long battle with the major telcos and cable companies, and before the CRTC, the Courts and the Federal Cabinet, so that the major incumbents cannot continue to charge Canadians unjust and unreasonable prices for essential services.
Recently, VMedia launched a new business-to-business division, VMedia TVaaZ, which provides streaming TV platforms for content creators, providers and distributors to enable them to reach their customers directly, and reduce their reliance on content aggregators like the large cable and fibre providers. The VMedia TVaaZ solution allows them to offer customized linear and on-demand programming, highlighting all of their content library assets, and delivering an industry-leading streaming experience across a variety of popular streaming platforms.
Currently, VMedia has over 200 employees based in our offices in Toronto and Montreal, Canada, Hyderabad, India and Antalya, Turkey.
VMedia launched our services initially in the Greater Toronto Area in 2013, and rapidly expanded to serve Canadians in all provinces coast to coast. VMedia's founders, Alexei Tchernobrivets, Ivan Smirnov and George Burger, have extensive backgrounds and expertise in IPTV technology, broadband networks, application development, as well as the content industry.
Since our beginning, VMedia has been the "disruptor" brand with a strong track record of bringing innovation and competition to the market, through the introduction of numerous customer-friendly initiatives and service features. VMedia has consistently led the industry and pioneered change, being the first to offer all unlimited internet plans, the first to offer a robust and customizable TV channel package solution, the first to offer seamless online sign up, and the first to eliminate costly set top boxes with our TV apps, among many other innovations.
In a market dominated by the major incumbent providers, who are determined to resist innovation and charge unconscionably high rates for their services, VMedia provides a better value proposition for Canadian consumers.
Internet - High Speed & Low Cost
VMedia offers a full selection of internet plans coast to coast, with speeds for every household budget and bandwidth need. Speed and reliability are our mantras so that our customers can trust us to enable them to surf, stream, browse, download and enjoy all that the internet has to offer.
VMedia's internet service reaches over 90% of Canadian households with a wide range of plans and speeds, and an opportunity to choose VMedia for savings and excellent service.
