Welcome to NATG North American Telecommunications Group (NATG) was founded in 1980 by Martin & Toni Harman. Prior to 1980, all communications services in the province were provided by the Telephone Company, BC Tel. BC Tel held a tight Monopoly on the communications industry with little competition in a tightly regulated environment. With deregulation and customers seeking choices, NATG was founded and grew rapidly. With a focus on customer service and treating customers right, NATG differtiated themselves in the market and created a loyal following. In the initial years NATG installed and serviced electro mechanical telephone systems with physical push button circuits and light bulbs. NATG, seeing a change in technology, became a representative for Tie telephone systems. Tie was one of the first modern electronic phone systems which started the electronic telephone technology revolution.
