Wheat State Telephone proudly supports the communities it serves in a variety of ways. This support ranges from providing jobs with competitive salaries and benefits in rural areas to donating needed goods and services to our local schools.
Wheat State Telephone is an active part of the community serving on committees and volunteering at local festivals and events. We also support the local chapters of the American Cancer Society through corporate sponsorships and in the Relay for Life events. Other groups and organizations that benefit from our corporate sponsorships and the donation of goods or services include: Little League teams, youth football leagues, volunteer fire departments, 4-H clubs, Helping Hands, Lions Clubs, and many others. Some Wheat State Telephone employees are active members in these organizations.
The youth of our communities is one category that receives particular support from Wheat State Telephone. Because our service areas are in an agricultural region, we donate to the county youth fairs and rodeos through corporate sponsorship, auction purchases, and vendor booths. This helps educate our youth and prepare them to thrive economically in these rural areas. We also contribute regularly to our local schools through donations, sponsorships, and participation that benefits the following:
To name a few:

Since 1950, Wheat State Telephone has been on the cutting edge of communications services. Today, Wheat State connects its customers to a fiber optic network called Fiber to the Home (FTTH). This fiber optic technology is the most advanced available and replaces yesterday’s copper telephone wire.
Wheat State Telephone FTTH network helps define successful communities just as good water, power, public safety, and schools have done for decades. Through fiber Wheat State transmits phone, Internet, and television services over the same fiber optic line and greatly enhances the quality and performance of all three. With FTTH, you can look forward to feature-rich phone service, much faster Internet speeds, and digital television with crystal clear picture and sound as well as convenient video viewing options. It’s all part of our commitment to provide our customers with the latest ways to stay connected, informed, and entertained — both today and into the future.
