We eat, sleep and breathe Internet here at Cruzio, and we know that in Santa Cruz we're not the only ones. This is a high-tech community, with a thriving tech scene that's right about ready to explode. So I guess it shouldn't surprise us that folks around the County are crying out for ever better, faster, more reliable broadband.
Even so, the demand for our

Our website, cruzio.com, has always been a big, big part of our company, our culture and our identity -- and we hope Santa Cruz's community culture. Just as Cruzio was born out of Chris and Peggy's passion for the technology and the opportunities it offered to connect people in new ways, the site started as a portal for the community, not as a way to sell

Cruzio is a service company and we must be open on most holidays. We thank our staff for supporting our members, and we try to honor and celebrate Martin Luther King day, even though we are at the office.

Cruzio customer service has a challenging job. We need to help you with your computer, even though we aren't in the room with you. That means our staff needs to be very good at explaining things.
What does that have to do with Peanut Butter and Jelly, that classic of American Cuisine?

We work hard at Cruzioworks. Many small companies and individuals have their own goals but also help each other and find interesting ways to collaborate. We work all sorts of hours, use tremendous amounts of Internet and drink amazing amounts of caffeinated beverages.

Santa Cruz has always been known as a beach community, an oasis where Bay Area citizens can escape into the sunny bliss of rolling surf and beautiful redwoods.
