About Us

Wilkes Communications, Inc., a subsidiary of Wilkes Telephone Membership Corporation, strives to add value to the community. You see us in town, at the store, school and church. We are all about SERVICE, RELATIONSHIPS, and COMMUNITY.

Wilkes Telephone Membership Corporation filed its Certificate of Incorporation on August 24, 1951. For 63 years the Membership Corporation has provided communications services to Wilkes County. As a family of businesses, in these years the services we provide has grown and changed but the way we do it has not. We are owned by our members and are fully committed to providing you with the best service possible. We want our members to be able to make one call and get it all. We take pride in our quality of services and continuously strive to improve our business purpose.

What started as a group of local Wilkes County citizens in 1949 petitioning to Central Telephone Company for service has evolved into a communications company offering your traditional home telephone plus High Speed Internet and Digital TV over a Fiber-to-the-Prem network, safety and security with Wilkes Security and a full lineup of business solutions. Those 23 people who first met on April 13, 1951 to hear representatives of the North Carolina and Federal REA speak in regards to officially forming this rural telephone cooperative are forever part of the great things Wilkes Communications, Inc. has and will continue to do.

Although the telecommunications industry has been undergoing and will continue to undergo tremendous changes, Wilkes Communications, Inc. is dedicated to providing our customers and members with the latest in technological advancements and services available today.

Being part of the community is more than just providing service to the people who live here.
