You often hear us say that we’re a cooperative. But, what does that actually mean? How is a cooperative (or co-op) different from any other company?

Member Owned

You, our customers, make up the ownership of the cooperative. We exist to provide service to our members. You become a cooperative member simply by having local phone service.

Through voting, you have a say in how the cooperative is operated. We encourage our members to be active in their Cooperative by attending the annual meeting.


As members, you are the shareholders of the cooperative. That means in times of profit a certain portion of these profits are returned to you in the form of a capital credits check.

The board of directors elected by our members determines the amount and timing of such disbursements.

Community Focused

Cooperatives care about the communities they are from. Each decision we make has our communities at the heart. Whether it be sponsoring a school activity, hosting a community event, or providing support for a local fundraiser, we are in the community to serve.

We’re also continually reinvesting in our network and helping to make our communities great places to live.
