We’re kind of new. Our parent company is Columbus Telephone Company, Inc. CTC was started by a group of Cherokee County farmers in 1905 and has literally been leading the telecommunications industry ever since. The company was one of the first to have a dial-tone switch in the late 1950’s, one of the first to launch Internet service in the early 1990’s and the first 100% fiber-optic network in 2004. Innovation is within the fabric of our enterprise.

CTC launched the Optic Communications brand in 2014. Optic is tasked with expanding CTC’s world-class core network to new areas. We’re so excited to make Galena, Kansas our first stop. Galena – Optic Communications was started for you.

We look forward to many, many years with you. Years that will add to the history of our now young company.
