Delivering Communications Solutions Since 1953

South Central Utah Telephone Association began offering telephone service to the rural areas of Southern Utah in 1953. Now known as South Central Communications, we have transformed into the leading provider of High Speed Internet and Broadband solutions within every community we serve. No company in the region has more fiber in the ground and offers the local and responsive services demanded by residents and businesses throughout South Central Utah and Northern Arizona.

If you live in or your business is located within our service areas, we would love for you to become a member of the South Central Communications cooperative. We offer outstanding, reliable entertainment and communications services including High Speed Internet, Cable TV, and Local/Long Distance Voice service. Give us a call and get connected today!

Our mission is to improve our communities by being the best provider of communications and entertainment services in the areas we serve and for the services we offer.

Our visions is to connect our members to the world through advanced communications that enhance their quality of life by providing innovative entertainment, data and voice solutions. We measure success by exceeding customers’ expectations through excellent service.

South Central Communications is a Cooperative. In general, a cooperative is a business owned and democratically controlled by the people who use its services and whose benefits are derived and distributed equitably on the basis of use. The user-owners of the cooperative are called members/patrons. They benefit from the cooperative in proportion to the use they make of it. Members unite in a cooperative to get services otherwise not available, as has been the case with our cooperative. Additionally earnings are allocated to members based on the amount of business they do with the cooperative.

The benefits of belonging to a cooperative versus a for-profit communications company aren’t found in the type of services offered, but rather in the quality of services, prices, support, and the motivation behind offering those services. As a result, the type and quality of South Central Communications’ services are tailored to meet and exceed the expectations of our unique community and Membership. Since we are a non-profit cooperative, our mission to improve our communities by being the best provider of communications and entertainment services in the areas we serve and for the services we offer, is our top priority and forms the basis for how most decisions are made within our company.

We are committed to bringing advanced communications solutions throughout our service areas. Whether its fiber-based internet, public access WiFi or video entertainment, we continue to invest to make sure that south central Utah and northern Arizona have access to state-of-the-art solutions.
