Meet The Maaias
Back in 2004, Linda & Levi Maaia stepped into a local, analog-driven cable TV company that was bound for extinction. At least, that’s what their competitors thought.
Through innovative strategies, Linda & Levi re-envisioned the company — Full Channel — as a state-of-the-art, fiber-rich, digital communications network, while successfully turning around a declining subscriber base, posting consistent profits, and expanding revenue generating units.
For 13 years, the Maaias successfully competed with major MSOs, telcos and satellite TV providers, building intrinsic value that culminated in a fruitful sale.
How to learn to love Goliath:
And to eat part of his lunch.
As the only independent broadband provider in Rhode Island, Full Channel evolved with the digital communications industry under Linda & Levi’s leadership — offering state-of-the-art digital entertainment and communications services.
The Maaias also offered something else the majors couldn’t — an authentic community connection. They used this connection to strengthen customer loyalty and goodwill. Augmenting that connection with their groundbreaking GreenLink® initiative: an innovative partnership with People’s Power & Light to deliver broadband services via 100% local wind power.
