affordable telecommunications to the people in the rural areas of Central
Texas. The Cooperative is a non-profit organization. When it began, the Cooperative
had 614 members and provided dial tone. Now, the Cooperative has over 7,300
access lines and provides a wide array of telecommunications services.
