Featured Business in Centerville: Fort Randall Telephone
One of the staple businesses for the past 20 years in Centerville has been Fort Randall Telephone. The company formed when US West Communications, Inc. (now CenturyLink) chose to sell several telephone exchanges to rural providers in South Dakota. The Hanson family formed a new company, Fort Randall Telephone, to be the owner of some of those exchanges. Fort Randall’s parent company, Hanson Communications is one of the top 100 telephone companies in the United States and provides service to around 30,000 customers in several, rural Midwest communities.
Currently, Ft. Randall Telephone provides telephone, internet and video to several communities in the south-central part of the state. Ft. Randall Telephone’s mission is to provide our valued customers with superior service, ongoing business relationships by maintaining the highest standards of quality customer service.
Fort Randall value’s their customers and tries in every way to make them happy by solving their problems in a timely, accurate & professional manner.
Fort Randall is very active in the communities it serves and Centerville is no exception. Whether it’s showing support of local ball teams by sponsoring jerseys or hats, or assisting in economic development projects such as housing, Fort Randall is a dynamic partner to all their communities. Most recently in Centerville, Fort Randall was a key player in bringing a new digital community sign to our downtown. The sign doubles as Fort Randall’s office sign while allowing the town to promote community events.
Centerville is glad to have this local presence for phone and internet in our area.
