oxio and A-Players.

A-Players are all the rage, and for good reason. oxio wants to work with the best and brightest, but… how do you even start defining that in the context of a company? Read on for our CEO Marc-André’s take.

Le Monstr x oxio make the internet look goooood.

We’re all about equal access to the internet and the opportunities that come with it. And for us, that means giving those who want it a platform and a voice. One way we’re doing that is by working with a new artist every few months. This gives them a bit of visibility (and we obviously pay them) and gives us new pictures to look at. Win win.

Which internet speed should you choose?

They (the big telcos) have been lying to us. Having “the fastest internet speed in the universe” isn’t a necessity. For most of us, it's not even close to being a need. The money-saving truth is: everyone would be more than fine with a reasonable internet speed. Find the speed you need right here.

How to figure out what internet speed you need.

Most of us don’t need high speed internet. Wait. Whaaaaat!? We know, we know. But really. We just think we do because the big telcos make more money selling us super fast internet. And, as you may know, we’re not really into how the big telcos do business. So we decided to explain how to calculate a speed that’s right for you. And, who knows, you might even end up saving some money.

So, is cryptocurrency a good idea or what?

oxio now accepts cryptocurrency. Cool, cool. But, why? Well, we like crypto and once you understand it, we think you might like it too. Decentralized. Transparent. Secure. Cryptocurrencies have the potential to change how we interact with our money.

Why we share how we price our internet plans.

Being radically transparent isn’t easy. Maybe that’s why we’re the only internet service provider taking it seriously. Read how we spend every dollar you give us. Literally every dollar.
