South Central Communications

Serving our communities and members since 1953

About Us

South Central Utah Telephone Association began offering telephone service to the rural areas of Southern Utah in 1953. Over the years, as the telecommunications industry and technology advanced, South Central Communications has become much more than a telephone company. Today, South Central Communications is the leading provider of high-speed internet and broadband solutions within every community we serve. Additionally, we provide fiber optic connectivity to our schools and businesses to ensure that we are doing our part to help our communities flourish.

Our Mission Statement: It is the Mission of South Central Communications 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 Vision Statement:It is the Vision of South Central Communications that we 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.

What is a Cooperative?

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.
