Member owned for over 50 years, your cooperative STRATA Networks began in 1948 to deliver telephone service to the rural areas of the Uintah Basin not able to get it otherwise. Today we are much more than a telephone company; we are now your telecommunication solution by offering nationwide wireless coverage, the fastest broadband internet in the Basin, advanced Cable TV, and home telephone service.
Helping people connect with each other has always been our major focus. The company has taken steps, building layer upon layer, forming a rock solid foundation of the latest technology. It all started in 1948 when two farmers stood in a field wondering why residents in outlying areas were told they could not receive telephone service. Others had said it was because construction charges were too prohibitive. One of the men, E. Floyd Ross, believed that anything was possible. He took action and organized a board, consisting of eight ranchers and farmers where each person represented a portion of the Uintah Basin. The cooperative's goal was to fill the void left by for-profit companies who chose not to serve rural customers. By 1953, the company's coverage extended more than 100 miles with over 752 customers.
Over the years, the company has grown as technology advanced. As customer needs evolved, the company introduced new services, and now offers Cellular Telephone, Satellite Television, Internet and Long Distance. The cooperative continues to focus and build upon their heritage, delivering services to a diverse customer base within the Uintah Basin and beyond. We are moving forward, adding layer upon layer, strengthening and building upon the cooperative's original foundation.
