Founded in 1963, the Colorado Telecommunications Association represents the telephone companies, vendors and service providers that connect many of the Centennial State's most vibrant farming, ranching and mountain communities.
CTA members provide communications services over 25,349 square miles of Colorado - an area larger than the state of West Virginia. This includes more than 30,000 phone lines and nearly 3,000 miles of fiber optics.
CTA member companies are dedicated to providing rural customers with the highest quality multi-use communications networks and advanced services to ensure that they are connected locally, nationally and globally.
CTA members make a significant, positive impact on Colorado's economy. According to economic impact studies, rural telecommunications companies provide more than $60 million in annual economic output to Colorado, directly employ 165 workers, with a combined annual payroll of $21 million, and create another 223 indirect jobs.
