Making Internet Easy Since 1996

Storm Internet Services is not your regular internet company. We have a strong commitment to each and every one of our customers, a local call center, and professionally trained technicians. Learn more about us below!

Our Core Values

No on-going contracts or needless penalties

We insist on earning your loyalty every day. Our no-commitment packages will always be available to our customers. Contracts are used to pass on savings in return for loyalty commitments up front, but never mandatory.

Local Service and Support

Our support calls are handled by local Storm employees, not outsourced to an overseas call center. We think it is important to use common sense when dealing with a support call, not a hierarchical question list.

Service Commitment

Our technicians work day-in-day-out to give all of our customers a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Our technicians are professionally qualified and trained, and they use state-of-the-art technology to ensure your connection is never lost and all of your inquiries are addressed.

Local Ownership

Storm Internet Services opened its doors in Ottawa in June 1996 and was originally founded by four local businessmen, including Herb Hartwig, who has remained with the company until today. Early on ownership changed hands, however, since 2003 Storm has been owned by two long-term investors, Charles Walther and Birket Foster. Storm has grown steadily over the years and in addition to its main office in Ottawa, it also has offices Perth and Chesterville, Ontario.

Commitment to Community

We strive to give back to the communities we serve. Everyone is better off when we work together. If there is an event you think we should be a part of, get in touch with us! We are always open to new opportunities.

Do you have an event that you would like us to participate?
