Company Information

Halstad Telephone Company (HTC) was incorporated in 1904, first serving the Halstad and Shelly, Minnesota communities. Through subsequent acquisitions and upgrades, we have grown to include the service areas of Nielsville, Climax, Bygland, Fisher, Gentilly, and rural Crookston, Minnesota, and Hillsboro and Gardner, North Dakota.

HTC is a leader in many fields, including broadband internet service, where we provide services for other Internet Service Providers. We also transport high-speed voice and data between toll transfer points for a large number of interexchange carriers.

In addition, internet and web storage services are provided in Grand Forks and the Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota, and East Grand Forks and Crookston in Minnesota. Wireless broadband service is available in western Polk County, including Crookston, MN as well as rural Grandin in Traill County, North Dakota.

As a member of various telecommunication service organizations, HTC has played a leading role in addressing both state and federal industry affairs, which ultimately affect the quality and affordability of each member/customer's services. Part of that leading role was as one of the first telcos in the nation to provide fiber service to the home in rural areas of their service area.

The Board of Directors and employees of this cooperative are proud and eager to serve you. We constantly strive to improve choices and quality. Our newsletter, “Phonotes,” is mailed to our members and is also posted on our webpage to keep our members informed.

Please visit us through these web pages or contact us. We'd be glad to greet you at our front door as well. Then enjoy yourself, because HTC is How To Connect.
