Today

A strong company, deeply rooted in its community

DERYtelecom keeps on growing and evolving, true to its commitment to ensure services and customer approach quality. This translates into cable network optimization and expansion, phone services deployment – now available across most of its territories –, acquisition and interconnection of other cable providers as well as enhancement of its service offering.

DERYtelecom encourages innovation by constantly relying on the development of its products and services. Built by driven individuals inspired by their founder’s hard work, this is reflected in the prime position held in the industry. Our founder's relentless work greatly contributed to this status. Well accepted by his community of adoption, Gilles Déry played all roles within his company, except for climbing posts, since he admittedly was not fond of heights! He repaired equipment, recorded town council meetings, answered clients inquiries and attended annual cable industry conventions in Canada and the United States. Established at the 3rd rank of Québec cable industry, DERYtelecom never ceases to diversify its Trio offer to let customers benefit from the best services there is.

As our founder used to say: "In electronics, the only permanent component is change!", DERYtelecom still lives by this maxim and is ready to face any challenge.
