Our Approach

Attentive and personal interactions

Our focus is on the needs of our clients. We strive to be a partner not just a supplier. It starts with providing a dedicated account manager who understand the requirements and who is assigned to your account in permanence.

Efficient and competitive offerings

Our team like our services, works at the speed of light. Our extensive fibre optic network, our in-house installation and maintenance teams and our fleet of service trucks allow us to provide the best service at prices that cannot be matched by our competitors.

Agile and innovative services

We are inherently a group of problem-solving geeks whose mission is to apply our passion and strengths to the problems that our clients face. We never hesitate to put our neurons to work to help businesses maximise their growth potential by providing flexible and customized solutions.

Our history

1996

Like a Silicon Valley startup story, 2 computer engineers living in the dorms at McGill University decide to create an ISP at a time when most people still do’t know what the internet is. Openface Internet was born.

2000

Openface moves into their new 20,000 sq ft headquarters strategically located on the corner of Park Avenue and sherbrooke allowing them to take advantage of the downtown core’s technical infrastructure.

2003

Due to its level of innovation providing DSL internet access in Montreal and integrating fibre optics internally while everyone was on dial-up, Openface was able to grow incredibly quickly, winning Deloite & Touche Fast 50 awards 2 years in a row.

2007

Openface finalizes construction of its ultra-modern data center at 3445 du Parc, allowing it to expand its colocation offerings and pairing those with its reliable, flexible and robust fibre infrastructure.

2013

Openface commits to the construction of its wholly-owned fibre optic network in Montreal, and creating partnerships with regional and national carriers to expand that network across North America. Fibre Optics connections to the internet and within private networks becomes Openface’s flagship product.

2016

Openface finalizes the acquisition of Zerofail and almost doubles in size across every metric (# of clients, # of staff, size of network) while acquiring a number of additional installation, maintenance, and engineering resources. (Open infographic)
