About ETEX Telephone Coop
Etex Communications, L.P. was formed in 1989. The company is a subsidiary of Etex Telephone Cooperative which was formed in 1952 to meet the communication needs of people living in rural northeast Texas. REA funding permitted a group of industrious individuals to launch the legacy of Etex Telephone Cooperative and provide service to rural areas of Texas where other companies chose not to serve. Etex Telephone Cooperative boasts a service territory of 710 square miles of rural East Texas. Customers within this service area are given the opportunity to purchase local, long distance, digital TV and internet (dial-up and DSL) services at rates comparable to those found in urban areas around the state. Deployment of fiber in the loop further enhances our ability to offer other broadband services. Our mission is to provide competitively priced, state-of-the-art communication, entertainment, and information services to our members and customers that include an array of contemporary, enhanced network features that are generally available in urban areas.
