On August 2nd, 1995, DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) high speed internet was introduced as one of Public Service Telephone’s premiere new services and PSTEL.NET was formed as part of Public Service Data, a new subsidiary of Public Service Communications. The new PSTEL logo was created in August 2004, as the market brand for DSL high speed internet services for the Central Georgia area.
Public Service is now in its 4th generation of family ownership and is one of the oldest privately owned telecommunications companies in the United States. It serves 1, 050 square miles of territory between Macon and Columbus, Georgia. While many independent telephone companies have sold out to large corporations over the years, Public Service is proud to have remained independently owned which is what sets it apart from other service providers.
Deeply rooted in the community for over 100 years, Public Service Telephone Company has continued to prosper through its commitment to its customers, its communities, and its desire to embrace new technologies. We have 100 years of combined technological knowledge and experience in which to build upon.
