One Vancouver is an initiative to strengthen ties with people in our lives, creating long lasting business relationships, forging stronger social networks and extending a welcome hand to visitors to our city.
Comprising a growing number of partners and projects from business, tourism, government and education, One Vancouver's goal is to distribute 25,000 .TEL names in Greater Vancouver before 2010 and create a community that is better connected, easy to reach and available for business in a mobile world.
What's your .TEL?
A Single Point of Contact
A .TEL is an easy to remember name like smith.tel or webnames.tel to which an individual or company can add all their contact information.
It creates a single point of contact which is easily recalled and helps people and businesses connect, whether by phone, email, fax or instant message. A .TEL directs people to targeted information such as a web site or blog and helps provides a central hub for general information such as opening times and prices, and includes new technologies such as, Twitter. Built in geo-location services make it easy to map any destination and even get directions.
To find out if your .TEL name is still available please enter the name you want in the box above and click search.
