Electronic Box Inc.
This Internet service provider has grown rapidly in Quebec and Ontario since it evolved from a reseller into a vertically integrated operation. This change in focus recently allowed the firm to do something its co-founders consider critical to its success: lower the prices it offers residential customers. This was a risky play, given the thin margins afforded by the ultra-competitive communications sector, but it has paid off. Customers love the decision—no surprise there!—and the firm also flexed its PR muscle to play up its move, gaining positive coverage in such influential Quebec publications as “Protégez-Vous.”
