We started this journey 20 years ago
In the late 90’s high speed Internet became available at people’s homes via cable TV and telephone lines. The response from the public was terrific. Everyone suddenly wanted it.
High speed installers
MTS, Shaw and Videon could not install their respective high-speed Internet packages fast enough. So, they opted to hire independent contractors to assist with the massive demand for a service that did not exist just a few months prior. That’s where we start our story..
Len, Bev and Luke, the founding members of Seerx and at the time and all public service employees, got together to see if there was an opportunity for them to start a company that would seize upon the current conditions and see where it might take them. The stars were aligning.
Successes at selling
Len and Luke took a leave of absence from their government posts, while Bev agreed to run the accounting after her day job. Len, was instrumental in getting in front of Videon management to sell Seerx to them. And sell he did. We started in February of 2000, having committed to staying on with both of their respective government departments until AFTER Y2K.
Delivering on promise
Within two weeks of starting to work for Videon, management saw that they were NOT getting any callbacks from ANY of the clients that Seerx installed high speed Internet.
