Cogeco Cable Canada is proud to announce that it will now be offering its services under the name "Cogeco Connexion." In addition, its community television network, TVCogeco, now bears the name "CogecoTV." These new corporate names are part of the renewal of the brands of all the business units in the Cogeco family, announced today, and will not result in any changes in their operations.
The descriptive term "cable" has been removed from the new name since it was no longer representative of the scope of the advanced technologies the company leverages today to drive its operations and meet the needs of its customer segments. The name "Cogeco Connexion", a subsidiary of Cogeco Communications Inc., reflects the company's mission and expresses the evolution of its offering, ranging from video to high-speed Internet and telephony service, along with data and voice transmission services and cloud-based applications for businesses. It also underlines the very human element of making a connection.
"Cogeco Connexion is a reflection of what we are, and expresses the vast range of our sophisticated communications services, the evolution of our company and, above all, our proximity with our customers over the entire territory where we operate," stated Louise St‑Pierre, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cogeco Connexion. She added: "This new name perfectly exemplifies the values we convey in everything we do on a daily basis to drive powerful connections for our customers while fostering genuine connections with our customers."
