Investing in solutions, not ads*

If you've never heard of us or haven't seen us on one of those "Top 10" lists online, it's because we won't pay to be placed. We utilize excess revenues towards donating equipment to partners, expanding our access to global infrastructure, contributing to social projects & more. * An annual listing expense is paid to be on the front page of in appreciation of the awareness they bring to Canadians. We also seek to empower causes like Unist'ot'en Camp

    Packaging Depot is formed (a broker of shipping things)

    Opens first location in Vancouver, BC at 5524 Cambie Street then goes on to open a handful more across the lower mainland : the demand is steady, the market is strong in every globalized city inhabited by folks with loved ones around the world. Burnaby becomes HQ.

    Creation of Infrastructure Unit at Packaging Depot HQ

    A simple mission : autonomously maintain standards on all the fundamental services required to conscientiously operate our multi-location businesses economically ; so franchisees wouldn't be at the whims of public companies for critical services as aggressive growth is pursued.

  • 2012 Expanded to UNMETERED Corporation

    Beginning with the basic connectivity services required to keep our retail locations connected to both the Internet and our offsite CCTV recording solutions : Packaging Depot's internal demands are beyond what most consumers receive in the marketplace ; we wanted more at a stable un-excessively-inflated rate... then ensured our stringent standards are maintained : achieved through service level agreements and proficient management policies.

  • 2013

    UNMETERED Corporation Evolved into UNMETERED.IO

    What's the difference? The corporation owned properties and other assets to build networks : the ClearingHouse empowers pre-existing partners to our monitored standards without having to build anything new (unless needed by demand)! A greater level of efficiency than before...

    UNMETERED.IO ClearingHouse : Member counter over a thousand!

    Amongst the imperatives of the Alam family (the founders of this organization : traditionally teachers that span the globe but some of us have interpreted this as a responsibility to distribute knowledge to everybody ; kind of like "UNMETERED"?) taught us to do : work hard towards honourable objectives without expecting unfair rewards ; how do you think we're doing? Thanks to those who have joined!

    We're just getting started : demand more, even from us... so we can leave future generations something great : not debt and hate.

UNMETERED.IO ClearingHouse expands operations by autonomously meeting members' needs and establishing regional service provider relationships with only the best carriers for ever-growing coverage areas to our standards & policies.
