Consolidated Communications CELEBRATES 125 YEARS!

Our History

Consolidated Communications’ beginnings can be traced back to the company’s founding in central Illinois. Today, CCI is a leading broadband and business communications provider across 23 states.

In 2019, we celebrate our 125th year in business. Our anniversary is an opportunity to celebrate our past successes and look forward to future opportunities. It is also an opportunity to show gratitude to the many people who contributed to our long-term company growth and achievement – customers, employees, investors, business partners and communities. Our values – Integrity First, People Make the Difference, Deliver a Better Experience, Evolve and Constantly Improve, Build a Stronger Community and Celebrate Successes – guide us in our mission to turn technology into solutions, connect people and enrich how they work and live. Every day, we work hard to Connect You Better.

With a rich history and track record of stability and innovation, we are here for you today and tomorrow as your trusted, long-term provider. See how it all began and follow us to where we are today!


Building a Stronger Community

Over the last 125 years, Consolidated Communications has forged a strong legacy and tradition of philanthropy and volunteerism. In celebration of this important milestone, we will be making special contributions to organizations making an impact in our communities based on employee votes. See sidebar for more details.

Company employees will also be participating in various volunteer service projects within our markets during the year.
