As summer came to a close, we celebrated with a few final summer flings here at Digis as a reward to all of our employees who have contributed to our success and growth thus far this year as one of the nation’s premiere Internet providers.
On August 15th, 2014 we hosted a summer party for our North county employees at the North Shore Aquatic Center in Ogden, Utah. Entry to the water park and dinner was provided courtesy of Digis. Digis employees and their families feasted on pizza and enjoyed some swimming and summer rays.
On September 5th, 2014 we held a second summer party for our South county employees at the Big Screen Event Center in Orem, Utah. Gloria’s Little Italy in Provo, Utah catered a dinner consisting of salad, pasta, and bread with nutella raspberry cupcakes as dessert. Dinner was followed by a myriad of games displayed on giant screens and projectors throughout the event center. Employees had the opportunity to battle friends and family members via their choice of video game, including Rock Band, Wii sports, and Call of Duty.
We’d like to thank all of our employees for their continued hard work and excellence in connecting people to a better Internet experience all along the Wasatch front and throughout nearby states. Each employee is a valued member of the Digis team and contributes to the Digis culture and experience where we believe in supporting one another, honoring commitments, and working hard to play hard.
We are pleased to announce that Digis has received the award for 2014 Best Internet Provider by Utah Valley Magazine! Digis Marketing Manager Edward Martin says regarding the award, “The success of Digis is attributed to two groups. Number one, our fantastic employees. Number two, our wonderful subscribers. With the support of each, Digis has become the largest Wireless Internet Service Provider in the country.”
Voted by local subscribers, we proudly accepted this award and decided to celebrate the employees who have contributed to this achievement. Since one celebration didn’t seem like enough, we planned two. The first included a Snow Cone Party, which provided free unlimited snow cones to employees for an entire day.
Secondly, as the capstone celebration, company wide lunch was provided to all employees. Lunch consisted of DP Cheesesteake sandwiches, salad, chips, and Crystal Light to drink. Digis General Manager Ryan Larsson concluded lunch with a speech spotlighting the growth of Digis over the past year and thanking employees for their role in Digis’s success. Ryan said, “Team, this award goes to you! We couldn’t have done it without the day-in and day-out hard work that happens across this company.”
We’re very honored to receive this award and would like to thank all of our customers and the community for their continued support.

St. Patrick’s Day and Digis share one distinct characteristic … the color green! In order to celebrate a holiday that shares our true color, we organized a company potluck revolving around just that, the color green. Employees contributed true Irish dishes, along with a variety of green-colored snacks and desserts to compose a St. Paddy’s Day lunch. From corned beef to green jello, we celebrated St. Paddy’s Day one green bite at a time.
A contest was thrown to determine the best St. Patrick’s Day dishes that were brought. An ensemble of taste-testing judges agreed upon the following winners:
Best Main Dish: Corned Beef by Don Dowden
Best Side Dish: Shepherd’s Pie by Laurel Stephens
Best Dessert: Mint Oreo Pie by Jade Lundberg
We wish everyone a happy and safe St. Patrick’s Day and would like to thank everyone who participated in today’s potluck.
This week we held our first ever Southern style potluck at Digis. Employees were invited to bring a homemade dish with a Southern theme from one of the following four categories: main dish, biscuits/bread, side dish, and dessert/drink. Lots of butter, flavor, and spice was brought to the table as many employees prepared mouth-watering recipes true to the South. It was a hard decision, but the following winners were selected for their dishes (pictured above from left to right):
Dessert: Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler by Dave Lowe Warehouse Manager
Biscuit/Bread: Pumpkin Cornbread by Chris Dominguez Warehouse Coordinator
Side Dish: Creamy Mashed Potatoes by Sarah Nunn Contract Administrator
Main Dish: Spicy Jambalaya by Sasha Hansen Marketing Coordinator
We’d like to thank everyone who participated in our potluck and for all of the hard work that went into each dish that was prepared. The display of Southern culinary skills from everyone who participated in the potluck was truly impressive!
It’s that time of year again! Last week we held our annual Digis holiday party (highlights of the party are included in the above video montage). We gathered at the Wheeler Farm Reception Hall to enjoy Magleby’s catered food, good friends, games, and giveaways. Over $10,000 in prizes were given away this year, ranging in scale from an iPad Air to tabletop foosball. Some employees opted to participate in games in order to win prizes, while others chose to solely enter the raffle. Many games were played throughout the night, including a dough sculpting contest where contestants had to sculpt dough in the form of our Operation Manager, Ryan’s, face. Other games included a sing/dance off where employees choreographed and sang Frosty the Snowman, a decorating contest where employees used a bag full of supplies to transform teammates into santas, trees, and snowmen, and a kleenex pull where employees raced to be the first to empty a box of kleenex by pulling only one kleenex out at a time. Business Support representative Shannon Parr said regarding the party, “I love going to the company holiday party each year. Digis puts on an awesome show. It is always so much fun.”
On behalf of Digis, we’d like to thank everyone who participated in our holiday party this year, especially our employees who helped arrange the venue, pick great food, dream up amazing décor, obtain fun and impressive prizes, plan the games, and everything else that went into organizing and putting on such a wonderful party! We’d also like to especially thank all of our valued business partners for their prize contributions. We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to working with you this coming year.
As a last note to all of our amazing employees here at Digis, Operations Manager Ryan Larsson said, “We really do put these parties on to say “thank you” for all the hard work that is put in each and every day here, so thank you again for making this a great year.”
Pie. Sweet, delicious baked pie. A flaky crust, a gooey center, and smooth cream to top it off … do you blame us for wanting to start Thanksgiving early? Here at Digis we just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to scarf up some pie. We had to start early, and that meant hosting a pie eating contest today! Employees lined up anxiously as quarter slices of apple pie were cut up and laid out along a table surrounded by chairs. As part of the rules, no utensils were allowed, however the use of hands was acceptable. The winner would be the first person to eat their entire chunk of pie and stand up. The pie eating contest commenced and the devouring began. Edward Martin, Digis Marketing Manager, came out triumphant for back to back victories with Jose Rodriguez coming in as a close second. Participants were congratulated and, as the winner, Edward received a $15 gift card to Walmart and participating stores.
Continuing in the theme of celebrating our favorite Thanksgiving dessert, employees were also invited to bring homemade pies to work today to share with everyone (homemade pies were not used as the pies in the pie eating contest, Digis provided store-bought pies for that purpose so as not to waste any homemade goodness). Everything from chocolate pecan to key lime pie lined our table. Four judges were randomly selected and the homemade pies were evaluated according to three categories: best tasting pie, most original pie, and the pie with the best presentation. The best tasting pie award went to Sara Aland for her tangy key lime pie. The most original pie award went to Amy Allam for her caramel dream pie. Lastly, the pie with the best presentation award went to MaryJo Jones for her fresh fruit pie. All of the pies had exceptional reviews and we’d like to thank everyone who participated in our pre-Thanksgiving pie feast! Happy Turkey Day to all.

Last week The Wireless Internet Service Providers Association (WISPA), a membership organization dedicated to promoting the development, advancement and unity of the wireless Internet service provider industry, held its annual fall conference and expo, WISPAPALOOZA, at the South Point Hotel and Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
WISPA is a membership-driven trade association that promotes the development, advancement and unity of the wireless Internet service provider industry. WISPA has over 770 members that support WISPA’s advocacy, education and other collaborative industry initiatives.
At this year’s WISPAPALOOZA our parent company JAB Broadband has been awarded Operator of the Year. With over 2500 WISPs providing service to 3 million customers nationwide, this is a real honor and testament to the team we have built and the new standard of excellence we have brought to the industry.
In a recent press release, WISPA Executive Director Rick Harnish said: “The 2013 WISPA Operator of the Year award goes to a company that has been successful acquiring other WISPs in an economy that has been challenging. JAB Broadband has been very supportive of WISPA and although many acquisition models have failed or struggled the last five years, JAB Broadband has continued on. I often hear from many WISPs who have had issues with companies who have bought their businesses, but I cannot recall one bad comment from a company purchased by JAB Broadband. It is for this reason, that WISPA recognizes JAB Broadband as the Operator of the Year in 2013.”
Digis is thrilled to be a part of this company as an Idaho and Utah Internet Provider. Along with our affiliates, we are able to provide coverage not only in Idaho and Utah, but in many states across the nation. We’re excited to be recognized for our contribution to Idaho and Utah Internet Service and look forward to future advancements in the industry.
