"The City of Hamilton’s Information Technology division has been working with HCE Telecom since their inception. From the outset, we had high expectations in the key areas of reliability, support, change management, responsiveness and cost. HCE Telecom has delivered in all of these areas, providing significant improvements in the network services that we offer to departments within the City of Hamilton.
We are particularly pleased with how they listen to our business problems and then provide a range of tailored, not cookie-cutter, solutions that solve our problems. The services, support and advice that HCE Telecom has provided to the City of Hamilton have significantly improved the quality of our network. They have become a trusted partner on whom we can rely. Together, we are building a City-wide network that will ensure that the City of Hamilton can provide excellent service to the residents of Hamilton."

We are extremely pleased with the transition to HCE Telecom to provide our critical and essential network telecommunication services. HCE brought in a professional team to work closely with us and they delivered a highly performing redundant network that meets the needs of our Service.
HCE’s skilled team was engaged throughout the process from a detailed network design, site survey and circuit installation to implementation to deliver our new network on time and to ensure it was a seamless transition.
We have a collaborative working relationship and it is wonderful to have a partner engaged and responsive to our business needs.

"Our business demands that we be available to our customers 24/7 365 days of the year. Because of this, over the past 17 years I have been involved with the largest providers in Canada. I have found them to be both unreliable and unresponsive. As a result of a recent office relocation I had more options available to me. I ended up going with HCE Telecom for our redundant office connectivity. The install and turn up was remarkably quick and painless, something that I was certainly not accustomed to. In fact, it went so well that I asked them what they could do for me at our primary data centre.
They provided a solution in no time at all and I was able to stop worrying about connectivity for the first time in years. With the large carriers I had outages, planned as well as unplanned, and it was having a negative effect on our business. Simple BGP solutions were taking years to implement and, even then, they didn't work. With HCE my requests were being handled in a fraction of the time and they worked right from day one.I have so much confidence in this group that they are now putting together a redundant solution to tie together all of our North American offices and data centres. They are that good."

"ETFO required an internet provider that could provide a true multi-homed and seamless connection. HCE was the only provider we spoke with that could provide this to us. Now our organization has two redundant connections providing a seamless IP presence. HCE Telecom's desire to work with us to solve this unique challenge enabled us to accomplish our business goals in a way no other provider was willing or able to do. The technical team at HCE Telecom did an incredible job during our implementation phase. They are always fast and responsive when we have questions or experience issues. At the end of the day I am happy to recommend HCE Telecom, based on their excellent technical experience and customer service."

"The biggest reason that we decided to leave the “big supplier” and switch to HCE, was financial. HCE was offering a higher level of services at a cost savings. Initially I was leery; I had already had a bad experience with another company promising a seamless changeover. HCE built my confidence through a detailed existing equipment analysis, a very thorough proposal, and backed up their claims with guarantees in our contract. Their communication and project management through the installation was excellent; I have a direct line to both our account rep and technician. The changeover was so seamless, that the majority of our staff still have no idea that we made the change."

"Our organization switched our phone/internet carrier to HCE Telecom in mid 2016. The fibre infrastructure was delivered on time and the service we have had with HCE Telecom has been excellent"
