About the Idaho Telecom Alliance




The Idaho Telecom Alliance's mission is to support the advancement of its members, to collectively share ideas and to promote services to rural telecommunications subscribers throughout Idaho.




The Idaho Telecom Alliance (ITA), formerly the Idaho Telephone Association, was formed in 1984 as the voice of rural telephone providers throughout the state of Idaho.  In 2008, the Idaho Telephone Association changed its name to the Idaho Telecom Alliance to reflect not only the advances in the telecommunications industry but also the spirit of teamwork and collaboration that exists between the members.  The ITA is the leading advocacy group for independent telecommunications companies in Idaho.

The ITA consists of 13 independent local exchange telephone companies located or operating in the state of Idaho. These companies, located mainly in rural communities in central and southern Idaho, have provided local telephone service in their communities for decades (some for over a century). Many of our companies are family or member owned and operated. All are dedicated to supporting and expanding the economic viability of their communities and to enhancing the educational and business opportunities available to community members.

ITA members consistently make local investments that provide access for rural Idaho to state-of-the-art telecommunications services. ITA members provide a variety of services to their customers, including basic local telephone service, long distance service, cellular phone service, high-speed DSL service, high-speed wireless internet, and digital television. Our members allow rural customers to receive cutting edge technology solutions from local businesses they know and trust.
