Local Roots of Service
The Story of Park Region Telephone
Way, way back… we were founded in 1906 to offer telephone services to Dalton and the surrounding area. It was all about telephone service at that time. Since then the company has gone through tremendous technology transformations and continues to place a priority on the technology needs of our customers. It’s these deep community roots that allow us to serve the region in a way few ever do. We honor the history, and work hard every day to live up to the reputation earned decades ago.
Currently we employ about 50 people and are governed by a nine-member board of directors—elected to represent you. Our staff and board have extensive experience in and dedication to the telecommunications industry. They are here to help you thrive.
We recognize the telecom needs of rural residents in the region. This recognition has led us into expansion over the last 25 years. Through competitive activity and acquisitions we continue our mission to ensure the prosperous future of our region.
Otter Tail Telcom
Otter Tail Telcom, LLC (OTT) was formed in 1997 after the Telecommunications Act of 1996 allowed for competition in the local telephone service market–and because ultimately there was a need for better services to the area. We are now a leader in supplying business and home technology services throughout the region.
Valley Telephone in Browns Valley was a small independent company, that joined our family of companies in 1998. We became the cable TV provider for the Browns Valley area in 2007.
In 2016 Park Region Telephone purchased privately owned Rothsay Telephone Company. The two companies had previously maintained a mutually beneficial working relationship over many years. It’s through this relationship that the opportunity presented itself for Park Region to purchase Rothsay Telephone. We welcome the businesses and residents of Rothsay and look forward to many years of service.
