Telus announced last month that it will establish a new business unit in Toronto focused on serving large business, corporate and public sector enterprises across the country. The new unit, called Client Solutions, will be led by John Y.B. Chang, who will become Telus executive vice-president and president of Client Solutions on Jan. 1 when the new business is launched. The new division will have about 3,200 employees nationally and is projected to produce revenues of almost $850 million next year. Chang is currently vice-president of advanced business application solutions at ISM-BC, a subsidiary of Telus. ISM-BC specializes in providing e-business consulting and IT services to large business and corporate clients. Client Solutions will provide a single TELUS point-of-contact for large business, corporate and public sector enterprises. The new unit will specialize in designing and providing customized e-business, IT, data, Internet Protocol and wireless service solutions, the company said in a statement.

Toronto-based Rhythms Canada Inc., a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) service provider, last month announced its service availability in the Ottawa area. The company is investing over $2 million in the Ottawa area through the building of 10 switching centres, from which it can deploy high-speed DSL services. Rhythms Canada estimates that there are over 50,000 Ottawa-area businesses, many of which are potential customers of its services. “This is an important investment for us, and for our future partners and businesses in the Ottawa area,” said Norbert Dawalibi, president and CEO of Rhythms Canada. “Ottawa-area businesses are hungry for better technology and wider choice,” said Dawalibi. “Today, Rhythms Canada is responding to that challenge. We intend to compete for the needs of businesses with more than just standard residential DSL access ‘repackaged’ for the business market.” DSL technologies permit a broad range of platforms with different upload and download speeds and different distance limitations. Rhythms also offers DSL service in Montreal and Toronto.
