The last year has been difficult for many residents in our local communities and the grim reality of the coronavirus pandemic has put a large part of our population at risk. From November 1st through mid-December of 2020, for each new customer that signed up for internet service, Valley TeleCom gave a $50.00 bill credit and donated $50.00 to support the customer’s favorite local cause. It was an arrangement designed to donate money back into the parts of our local communities that need it most.

“Through this campaign, we’ve been able to donate $4,300 to local food banks throughout Graham, Cochise, and Greenlee Counties in Arizona, and Luna and Hidalgo Counties in New Mexico. For those customers that chose animal shelters, Valley donated 2,100 pounds of cat food and 4,000 pounds of dog food to local animal shelters throughout these same counties,” said Lana Estes, Customer Relations manager, “We’re so proud to support our local communities.”

Now, more than ever, fast and reliable broadband internet is necessary to keep people connected to family, friends, and loved ones. The ability to work and learn from home has become an essential need as we face the challenges of living in a post-COVID world. Valley TeleCom is dedicated to ensuring easy and reliable access to internet and worry-free WiFi.

About Valley TeleCom Group

Valley TeleCom Group is a local telecommunications company that provides high-speed Internet, phone and business solutions to southeast Arizona and southwest New Mexico. They have offices in Animas, NM; Clifton, AZ; Safford, AZ; and Willcox, AZ and have been serving this area since 1962.

Many changes have occurred in the rural telecommunications industry in recent years and the Board of Directors has decided that the time is right to merge CVT into VTC. Once this merger is complete, all CVT customers will become patrons of VTC. Since VTC is a Cooperative, any profits generated are distributed to the patrons in the form of capital credits. After the merger, current CVT customers, now patrons of the Cooperative, will be eligible for capital credits from VTC for the first time. This merger will be very transparent to all customers and will not result in any rate changes or the appearance of your monthly bill.

Again, this will be a very transparent transaction to CVT and VTC customers and the new fiber construction that it will enable will be a tremendous benefit to customers in our serving area. We appreciate being your choice of
telecommunications service providers and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact our office at 1-800-421-5711.

From now through mid-December, every time a new customer signs up for internet service, Valley TeleCom will donate $50.00 to support the local food bank or animal shelter, whichever cause the customer chooses. And, as a bonus, the new customer will receive a $50.00 credit on their bill. It’s a win-win arrangement that will donate money back into the parts of our local communities that need it most.

“There’s so much more we can do when we choose to work together,” said Jamie Wright, Customer Relations Supervisor. “During this season of magic, we’re reaching out and working with each new internet customer—to get them connected and to help them contribute to a greater good. It’s something we can do together to make great things happen in our communities.”

Valley TeleCom Group's representatives spoke about the importance of broadband for rural business development and growth and also the ways that broadband brings education, public safety, telemedicine and other opportunities to rural consumers. Mr. Metts and Mr. Thompson provided an overview of its service area in Arizona and New Mexico to highlight the types of services it provides to both consumers and businesses in this region as well as pointing to the number of jobs their company provides in these two states and other services that contribute to the area's economic development.

Valley TeleCom Group's representatives urged their congressional delegates to help them continue to provide the services their community needs at an affordable rate by removing regulatory uncertainty and urging the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reconsider the deep cuts and other extreme modifications it is proposing to impose on the Universal Service Fund (USF). Valley's representatives explained that cuts to this important fund could put existing investment in rural broadband at risk and discourage future investment in new broadband-capable networks by small companies such as Valley, leading to increased rates for telephone, broadband and other services Mr. Metts and Mr. Thompson were in Washington to participate in the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association's Legislative & Policy Conference, March 19-21. More than 500 rural telecom representatives from all over the country gathered in the nation's capital for educational briefings about emerging rules and regulations and other industry issues. They also took part in visits to policymakers on Capitol Hill and the FCC.
