Blue Lightning, formerly known as Wiggins Telephone Association, has been providing local telephone service as an independent phone cooperative since 1951. In that time, we have provided quality phone service to four phone exchanges, all while managing to keep up with the innovative developments in technology. In 2007, the company initiated a large-scale Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) project, investing a great deal in our rural community to provide an internet experience the way it’s meant to be!
Bringing the latest & greatest communications technology out there, the project has resulted in the only state-of-the-art fiber optic network in the region. Since fiber cable is composed of hundreds of strands of glass that can transmit digital information throughlight signals over long distances, its information transmission capabilities cannot be equaled by the other guys’ wireless or satellite networks.
Blue Lightning fiber cable is placed underground and wired right up to the home, allowing you reap the benefits of a reliable connection that won’t be bogged down by too many users or knocked-out of service by inclement weather. To top it off, Blue Lightning gives you a ridiculously fast connection, boasting speeds up to 100 MBPS. This cooperative is the answer to all of your communications needs!
