Small Town Service with Cutting-Edge Connection Speeds
Who says you need to live in a big city to enjoy the best in phone, Internet, and TV? As a 4th generation family-owned business with a buy-and-hold strategy, we are fiercely committed to the long-term success of our business. And that means bringing the latest technologies right here to your hometown.
Because we’ve been innovating for almost 70 years, we’re much more than a traditional phone company. We’re a full-service entertainment provider. Twin Valley customers expect small-town service with the cutting-edge connection speeds of the most connected cities. You can tap into the larger world, with the most reliable connections, delivered at blazing speeds. (We’ve got your back, gamers!)
Our customers are more than a name or number to us. They’re our neighbors. We live in the communities we serve across the region—and more than that, we get involved. Our kids go to school together. We see our customers at church, the grocery store, and Little League.
Although the early history of many telephone exchanges is hard to locate, one safe guess is that around 1900, in any little community with a store, rail depot, or school, several people purchased telephones and tied locations together to start a telephone company. Then, in 1947, Joe and Mildred Foster purchased the Miltonvale Telephone Company. 10 years later on February 27, 1957, Greenleaf Telephone was acquired and the two companies became Twin Valley Telephone. Incorporators of TVT were John G., Joe, and Lulu Foster.
The years have brought many changes to TVT – both through acquisitions and new technology. Until February 2006, Twin Valley served 2,000 customers over an 850 square-mile area of north-central Kansas. Maintaining the tradition of continual growth, the company completed the acquisition of 13 exchanges. With the acquisition, the company’s customer base grew to 6,600 customers over a 2,400 square-mile radius.
Twin Valley buried fiber to each home in all 13 new exchanges. This major investment allows residents to receive state-of-the-art communications and entertainment products, such as high-speed Internet and digital high-definition TV. The build-out of the fiber network was completed in 2009.
In 2008, Twin Valley took on another large fiber to the home project in Clay Center. The company became a CLEC in Clay Center that provides telephone, digital TV, and Internet.
Today, fourth-generation family members play an active role in the day-to-day management and operations of the company.
For more than 70 years now, Twin Valley has been providing cutting-edge communication technology with superior customer service.
We’re more than a company. We’re an active part of the communities we serve. Helping our community matters to us, whether that’s providing cutting-edge telecommunications and entertainment to our customers or working hard to make a difference in the communities where we live and work.
Twin Valley has been involved with and made contributions to many worthwhile local events and charities—both inside and outside of its exchanges. The board and employees are active in local communities and organizations, giving their own time to be involved in many local organizations. The combined efforts of Twin Valley’s generous support and its community-oriented employees allow Twin Valley to be involved in a wide variety of organizations.
We couldn’t bring you our amazing services without an incredible staff. Meet the team behind it all!
