Telehop Communications Inc. (TSX-V: HOP), was founded and headquartered in Toronto, Ontario, in 1993, and has grown into one of the largest alternative telecommunications providers to both residential and business customers.
Telehop originally began offering residential and business two-way monthly 'flat rate' calling services in the Greater Toronto area between communities where a call would otherwise be a long distance call. In 1994, Telehop became one of Canada's few Equal Access Long Distance Providers, allowing it to offer its customers full service long distance calling globally at significantly lower rates. The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission ("CRTC") has licensed Telehop as a Class "A" telecommunications carrier.
