Dedicated community cornerstone gets a new name
Brought to you by Debbie Jewell - Canby Telcom/DirectLink - COMMUNICATIONS, CONNECTIVITY INSIDER
On November 1, 2016. Canby Telephone Association (dba Canby Telcom) and Mt Angel Telephone are becoming one and will assume a new name, DirectLink. Still the same excellent team of people serving you, still the same cooperative owned by you - our members, just with a new assumed business name and brand identity.
Canby Telephone Association was formed over a century ago by Canby citizens to provide telephone service to an 84 square mile area of the city and rural homes and businesses. We are still committed to doing just that and more.
Over time we have grown to so much more than a telephone company. We have expanded our footprint into Mt Angel, expanded our service offerings to include Internet, digital television and hosted IP voice systems for our local businesses and we developed a first in the US product, EZVideo, which is now being resold by other local independent and cooperative telephone companies in the Portland area.
It is for these reasons along with the desire to gain efficiencies and continue a company culture of passion and innovation for the industry we work in, that we chose a name that represents our view of the future - providing our members a Link to the World.
The name DirectLink, our tag line "we're here for you" and our new logo represent how we want to be viewed in the future. A company that is forward thinking, committed to our communities and one that provides the absolute best member service and support.
We are very excited about our new name, brand and mission! With DirectLink you can continue to expect amazing people with strong local values. We're your cooperative, your neighbors and your connection to the world.
